Renewing of Vows Ceremony

Renewing or refreshing vows also known as a Re-Affirmation Ceremony has become a popular ceremony in recent years, particularly to enhance milestone wedding anniversary celebrations. 

There may be a considerable history to a relationship by the time a renewal of vows is decided upon. Vows renewal is a distinctive way of honouring each other and the journey travelled so far. A refreshing way to look at the journey ahead. 

A gathering of people who have shared in the good times and the rough times to witness the next stage in a marriage partnership can be a powerful and supportive celebration. 

In developing this ceremony it is very important to reflect the journey that the couple has been on since they met and committed to one another, as well as the couples hopes for the future as a couple or as a family.

In making their vows some couples choose to re affirm their original vows. Others decide to re write their vows in celebration of who they are as a couple at present, and who they wish to be in the future.

Existing wedding bands can be used and handed around the gathering in a cloth, and held as each person gives their blessing and wishes for the future. 

A Renewal of Vows or Re-Affirmation Ceremony can also include a commemorative certificate. This can be signed by two witnesses at the event. Unlike a legal ceremony, people of any age even children can be the signatories at this ceremony.

The format of a Renewal of Vows Ceremony can be similar to a wedding ceremony or can have a unique structure as chosen by the couple.

You may wish to renew your vows as a celebration of the evolution of your relationship, or as a ceremony for people who were unable to attend your wedding. Perhaps you were married overseas, or interstate, and you want your immediate family and friends to be a part of your special occasion. Whatever the reason, vow renewal ceremonies are a marvellous way to deepen your commitment to one another.
