Who ever said there was such thing as ‘happily ever after?’
The greatest love stories are the ones that continue to re-write themselves year after year, adding chapter after chapter…
Here are some reasons why couples may choose to reaffirm their relationship in a Renewal of Vows Ceremony:
- Celebration of a milestone Wedding Anniversary.
- The rekindling of a relationship after a separation.
- Recognition of the strength of a relationship after a difficult period.
- In honour of welcoming a new child in the family.
- Couples who married abroad, and wish to celebrate with a ceremony at home.
Any couple can hold a Renewal of Vows Ceremony any where, and at any point in their marriage. There are no legalities involved in renewing your vows. It is a symbolic ceremony designed to celebrate and reconfirm your love.
Samantha will meet with you 1 – 2 months before your ceremony to discuss your love story so far, and help you to tailor your ceremony script. You can opt to include poems and readings, or invite friends and family members to be involved in wishing you well on your day.
You may even like to include a symbolic ceremony such as a Handfasting, Unity Candles, Sand Ceremony or Blessing of Rings in your service; or invite your children into the proceedings too, confirming your union as a family.
Samantha will join you at your venue for a brief rehearsal shortly before officiating your ceremony, and will even ensure you receive a keepsake copy of your ceremony script to treasure afterwards.
Travel expenses may be added dependent on location.
“Thank you so much for making our Renewal of Vows very special indeed; unique and memorable. Everyone was very taken by you, the ceremony and its location. We’ve have numerous comments about how wonderful you were (unsurprisingly!) and also about how much the contents of the ceremony resonated with many people, almost as if they were on a voyage of discovery.
Our wedding day was lovely, of course, however we feel we will remember last Saturday’s Renewal of Vows much more vividly as it was extremely personal, meaningful and reflective. You truly are a beautiful person, inside and out. Sending you Love, Light & Joy, always…… not forgetting huge hugs!”
