Couples choose to renew their vows as a way to celebrate and affirm their love and to give recognition to the strength and longevity of their union.
The ceremony serves to strengthen and re-affirm their commitment to each other and to honour their journey in life together.
Renewals of Vows Ceremonies are often celebrated at significant milestones in the couples relationship such as 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th anniversaries and so on. However there are other occasions when it may be appropriate to have a Renewal of Vows Ceremony, perhaps after a time of separation, or an overseas marriage or when the Wedding ceremony you had was not, through circumstances, the way you wanted it to be. If a copy of the original ceremony is available it can be used as a basis on which to build the Renewal of Vows Ceremony.
In any case the ceremony is individually crafted to reflect the couples journey. Renewing your vows can be a stepping stone to a deeper level of commitment between partners.
