Renewal of vows

We offer couples the perfect opportunity to recreate the magic of their wedding day.

Perhaps you wish to celebrate a special anniversary, you’ve overcome a difficult time, or simply want the wedding you never had?

Whatever the reason, renewing your vows can strengthen your commitment to each other.

Choosing a venue

You can have a ceremony at one of our council venues or approved premises.

What does the ceremony include?

Your ceremony will normally contain some, or all, of the following:

  • Special music
  • Readings
  • Renewal of vows
  • Exchanging of rings or re-dedication of rings
  • The story of how you met
  • Message from guests
  • Signing of commemorative certificate.


A non-refundable booking fee is payable for booking your ceremony. All fees include a commemorative certificate.

Booking your ceremony

Once you have chosen your venue, you will need to book the date and time of your ceremony.

To book a ceremony you will need to complete our ceremonies enquiry form and a Registrar will contact you to confirm your booking, discuss your requirements and take your payment.

Bookings can be made up to 2 years in advance and there is a non-refundable booking fee payable. The booking fee confirms the date, time, and place of your ceremony.
