A renewal ceremony is designed for couples who wish to renew their wedding or civil partnership vows.

The ceremony is also ideal if you have been married or registered a civil partnership abroad and wish to have another celebration at home. Options are chosen from a ceremony booklet and can include your choice of vows, words, music, readings with a special significance and an exchange of rings or gifts. The ceremony ends with signing a commemorative certificate.

Ceremonies can be held in any of our registration offices or approved venues, or another suitable publically accessible venue.
