Renewal of Wedding Vows
This is a ceremony for couples who are already legally married, who wish to reaffirm their commitment to each other by renewing their marriage vows.
You may feel it is an appropriate way to celebrate a special wedding anniversary (eg 10th, 25th, 40th etc), or you may have been married abroad and wish to renew your vows in the presence of family and friends who were unable to attend.
Whatever your reason you can renew your marriage vows in West Berkshire with a unique and personal ceremony that will be written especially for you.
Please remember that a Renewal of Vows ceremony has no legal status and is not legally binding on any one who takes part. The ceremony will be conducted by a celebrant, who will not be acting in an official capacity, even if they also work as a Registrar.
We are happy to provide this ceremony at Shaw House, Newbury or at any of the Approved Premises (see above) in this district.
Please telephone us to make a booking or if you have any questions regarding these ceremonies.
