Renewal of vows

This ceremony is for any couple who wish to renew their marriage or civil partnership vows in a unique and personal ceremony.

Often these ceremonies are associated with a special anniversary however the ceremony is just as appropriate for couples at any stage of their relationship. Many couples who have their ceremony abroad choose to renew their vows in a special event held for family and friends on their return. 

You can arrange a renewal of vows ceremony no matter your age or how long you have been married or in a civil partnership. It does not matter if you do not live in the area where you want your ceremony.

The ceremony may contain several sections, such as:

  • Introduction and welcome
  • Acknowledgement of any children of the marriage/civil partnership
  • Reading(s)
  • 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.
