Renewal Of Vows

This ceremony is for any married couple who wish to renew their marriage vows in a unique and personal ceremony.
Often these ceremonies are associated with a special wedding anniversary such as a tenth or twenty-fifth however the ceremony is just as appropriate for couples at any stage of their marriage.   Many couples who get married abroad choose to renew their marriage vows in a special event held for family and friends on their return. You can arrange a renewal of marriage vows ceremony no matter your age or how long you have been married. It does not matter if you do not live in the area where you want your ceremony.

The ceremony may contain a number of sections:

• introduction and welcome
• acknowledgement of any children of the marriage
• reading
• renewal of vows
• rededication of ring(s)
• further readings
• presentation of certificate
• closing words

A Renewal of Vows Ceremony has no legal status and is not legally binding on those who participate.
The ceremony can be held in Marischal College or at any venue agreed between the couple, Senior Registrar and venue owner.
