Renewal ceremonies - marriage and civil partnerships

A renewal ceremony is for any couple that wish to celebrate renewing their vows. Often these ceremonies are associated with a special anniversary or for a family celebration when the legal ceremony was held abroad.

What we provide

You can have your ceremony in our register office venue the Syrett Suite, or anywhere within the Bracknell Forest district, even if you are not a resident of the district.

The ceremony will be conducted by a celebrant but will not be acting in an official capacity. Celebrants are trained and experienced in conducting many different ceremonies and can help you to create an individual ceremony.

Renewal of vows ceremonies can contain the following sections:

  • introduction and welcome
  • acknowledgement of any children of the relationship
  • reading
  • renewal of vows
  • rededication of ring(s)
  • giving of new ring(s) or gift(s)
  • words from previous guest (often best man or family member)
  • signing of certificate
  • witnesses and closing words

The renewal of vows ceremony is usually approximately 15 minutes and can be up to 30 minutes in duration depending on the number of options and readings chosen.

What do I need?

Two people to witness the signing of the certificate.
