Renewal of marriage vows ceremonies
What is a Renewal of Marriage Vows Ceremony?
This ceremony is for any married couple who wish to celebrate their relationship by renewing their marriage vows. They are often associated with special wedding anniversaries, but are appropriate for any couple at any stage of their marriage. It is sometimes especially relevant for a couple who may have been through a period of difficulty in their relationship and is an opportunity to renew their commitment to one another.
A renewal ceremony offers couples the opportunity to reaffirm their commitment to each other in a formal and meaningful ceremony. You may want a totally private ceremony, just the two of you, or you may decide to renew your marriage promises in front of your family and friends. Whatever you decide, you will be given the opportunity to choose your own ceremony so that it will be a personal and truly memorable occasion.
All ceremonies are of a non-religious nature and neither the renewal ceremony nor any document issued following the ceremony has any legal significance and as such is not legally binding. The ceremony will be conducted by a 'celebrant' who will not be acting in any legal or official capacity. However, she will be offering her help, advice and expertise to make your ceremony an enjoyable and meaningful event.
Where Can Ceremonies Be Held?
Renewal Ceremonies can be held at Rotherham Register Office or in any other venue with a suitable function room and holding a public entertainment licence such as hotels, parish rooms/civic centres etc. Renewal Ceremonies are available throughout South Yorkshire. If your local Register Office does not provide this service it may be possible to arrange for a celebrant from Rotherham to attend to conduct the ceremony for you.
