A renewal of vows ceremony is a declaration that you are committed to your marriage and a testimony that the trials and challenges of past years have not weakened but strengthened the bond of love between you.

All those present must clearly understand that the couple is already married and that this is simply a renewal. This does not mean that it can’t have all the pomp and excitement of the real thing. It is just that there are no official documents to be registered on the day.

Some cool ideas are, placing a photo from your wedding day on the signing table. Some of the guests at your renewal of vows ceremony may not have been at your original wedding. You can include the wording and vows from your original ceremony and even exchange the same wedding rings. The addition of children and events during your marriage can be highlighted during your renewal of vows ceremony. Children love nothing more than to watch their parents exchange vows and rings and reconfirm their commitment to their marriage. It is a very special and wonderful experience for all.

The preparation of the ceremony is similar to preparing a wedding ceremony and I will assist you with this and provide suggestions to make this a truly memorable occasion.
