RENEWAL OF VOWS
Why choose to
Renew Your Vows?
Making your vows to the person you love is such a wonderful thing – why do it only once?! There are many reasons you might choose to renew your vows at some stage in your marriage or civil partnership - here are just a few:
To celebrate a special anniversary
To reaffirm your commitment after a separation or difficult time
To mark the beginning of a new chapter in your lives together.
The content of a renewal of vows ceremony is often very similar to a wedding, including readings, music, the exchange or rededication of rings, and of course the vows themselves. You might choose to hold a lavish ceremony with all your family and friends and a reception party afterwards, or you may prefer a smaller ceremony with just a few select guests – either is fine, and anything in between. Your ceremony will be completely tailored to you, celebrating your relationship and looking towards your future with joy.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Working with me to plan your ceremony is both easy and fun! Here's how it all works...
First, contact me for a chat about the ceremony you are planning and to check my availability. We will then arrange to have a chat on the phone so that you can tell me more about your plans and ask any questions you have. If you decide to book me for your ceremony I will ask for a 50% deposit to secure your date, and then we'll book a date for a full planning meeting.
In advance of our planning meeting you will have access to my lists of readings, music and wording ideas to give you lots of inspiration. We will then meet at your ceremony venue or another location of your choice to plan your ceremony in full. At this meeting we will discuss your requirements in more detail and I will get to know more about your wishes for the day and provide lots of inspiration.
I'll then get straight to work on your bespoke ceremony script, which will be sent to you for checking well in advance of the ceremony date and can be edited as many times as necessary to ensure it's perfect for you. I will also liaise with all the relevant suppliers to check things like layout, accessibility, sound, etc. This ensures that I will be fully prepared and ready to go on the day itself.
The big day!
I'll arrive an hour before the ceremony start time to set up, help out wherever needed and speak to those contributing to the ceremony (readers, musicians, etc) to ensure they have everything they need. I will then deliver your perfect ceremony in front of your family and friends and present you with your signed certificate and a souvenir copy of your script to take home and treasure.
