Renewal of vows ceremony

Married couples and couples who have committed to a civil partnership can renew their vows by holding a renewal of vows ceremony. These ceremonies do not have a legal status.
A registrar will hold the ceremony on your behalf, and you will receive a commemorative certificate.

It is possible to include your choice of readings and music in the ceremony. However, religious readings or music will not be allowed.
