Sometimes it feels like you need to renew those marriage vows again to celebrate a special anniversary or perhaps when you've faced some challenge or sometimes just to make a new start. You may not have had the wedding of your dreams first time around or you might simply be a romantic at heart. And this just as significant as your marriage years earlier. You want your vow renewal ceremony to be as special and unique as your relationship. My role is to make sure that happens!
As a professional celebrant I can create a personal event which includes whatever religion or spiritual content you require - or none at all! I can work with you to write an individual, bespoke ceremony tailored totally for you to celebrate your relationship and your love.
We can meet as soon as you like to start preparing the Ceremony so that I can get to know you and your desires for the day. Your vow renewal ceremony will reflect your desires as well as your beliefs and values.
Each vow renewal ceremony script is written specially for you, with all the elements, ideas and symbols you’d like to include. For example – a hand-fasting or the lighting of a unity candle. You may want to include your children, other relatives and friends in the ceremony. As as independent celebrant I am free to include religious prayer, hymns or other symbolic aspects that may be important in your life. The script develops over time and is not finished until you are totally happy that it is right for you.
You can use traditional vows or write your own. You may want to have your rings blessed again with words significant to you along with any music, readings or poems which seem appropriate. If you would like to include a handfasting see the details here
You can use any venue from a grand hotels to a simple guest house or your family homes. You may prefer to have your ceremony out of doors, in your own garden, a meadow, woodland or stone circle.
I am happy to fit in with whatever style of wedding you envisage – whether this is outdoors under an oak tree, or in the grand surroundings of a stately home – all my ceremonies are unique, meaningful and above all, personal.
