Renewal ceremonies

A renewal ceremony is not a legal ceremony, but is a special way for any couple wishing to celebrate renewing their marriage or civil partnership 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 venue, the Haversham room, 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 who 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. Please note that renewal ceremonies cannot include any religious content.

Renewal of vows ceremonies can contain the following:

  • 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 usually lasts up to 30 minutes depending on the number of options and readings chosen.

What do I need?

You will need to provide proof of your marriage or civil partnership.

Ceremony chats are held on Monday to Friday and cost £17.50.
