Renewing of Vows Northern Ireland
A Vow Renewal is a wonderful way to celebrate your marriage all over again…
There are lots of reasons why a couple would consider celebrating their marriage a second time.
You might want to mark a special anniversary – not necessarily your wedding anniversary, it could be the anniversary of your first date.
Perhaps you’ve gone through difficult times in your marriage and want to celebrate the fact you’ve come through stronger than before.
Whatever the reason for having the ceremony, there are no restrictions on a Vow Renewal – it can be held wherever and whenever you want…just the two of you on a beach…or a big celebration in a hotel.
The choice is yours…because it’s about how you want to express the strength of your love and commitment to each other.
While the ceremony revolves around your vows – which may be your original vows or personal vows specially written for the occasion – it can also include readings, poetry and music and, of course, it can be non-religious or part-religious to reflect your personal beliefs.
Naturally you will want to re-dedicate your wedding rings or, perhaps, dedicate new rings you’ve got for the occasion.
A symbolic element such as ring-warming or ring blessing can be included – where the rings are passed around and blessed by family and friends.
Many couples like to include their children – or grandchildren – in the ceremony.
While your original wedding ceremony may have involved compromises…a vow renewal is the chance to have the celebration both of you have always wanted…
Vow Renewals aren’t just for couples from Northern Ireland…
