Renewal Ceremony

These ceremonies give couples the opportunity to re-affirm their marriage or civil partnership dedications, and to celebrate their continued commitment and love for each other.

 

Every ceremony will be unique and the couples can invite family and/or friends to take part in the ceremony. Ceremonies are secular and do not contain religious references. The ceremony has no legal status and the couples’ marriage or civil partnership certificate must be shown before a ceremony can be booked.

 

Whether it’s just the two of you, or you want to celebrate with your family and friends, we can help you arrange the perfect celebration. The ceremony is a public declaration of your life-long commitment, love and support toward each other. Such an event provides a dignified and formal opportunity to:

  • Reiterate your commitment and life long partnership to each other
  • Re-dedicate or give new rings to each other

 

The ceremony will be conducted by one of our experienced “Celebrants” who will not be acting in any legal capacity. However, the Celebrant conducting the ceremony will offer you their guidance and expertise to ensure your ceremony is a dignified and meaningful occasion.

 

Specially written ceremonies are available containing choices to make each ceremony unique with special meaning to the couple and to their family. The following elements can be included in a ceremony: 

  • Welcome
  • Reading
  • Renewal of vows ceremony
  • Signing of the commemorative certificate by the couple and witnesses
