What is marriage?
Marriage is a promise. A promise that we commit to every single morning. A promise to work together to weather whatever life throws at you, the good and the bad. To hold tight to each other when the going gets tough and to give each other the freedom to achieve your dreams.
Renewing your vows is the perfect way to reaffirm the love that has kept you together through the years.
Perhaps you have come through a life event that could have broken you but instead showed you how strong your marriage is. Or come to the brink of breaking up but instead held fast and found a way through together. Maybe you are celebrating a special anniversary milestone or just woke up one day and decided you were still so in love with this person next to you that you needed to share that love with the world.
Or maybe you want a do-over to get something right that went wrong the first time around.
No matter the reason, planning a renewal of vows ceremony is the perfect way to turn another page and commence the next chapter in your love story.

What is a vow renewal ceremony?
At the heart of it, a renewal of vows wedding ceremony is a commitment ceremony. And commitment ceremonies can be performed for reasons other than renewing your vows such as:
- Celebrating a marriage that took place overseas with friends and family who couldn’t be there.
- Not feeling the need for a legally recognised marriage, but you would like to commit to one another in a public declaration in front of the central people in your lives.
- You are bringing or have brought a child into the relationship and you would like to celebrate by declaring to provide a warm and loving home for them for life.
Whatever the reason for your celebration of love and commitment, you should be able to declare it at the top of your voice.

My wife and I had just come through something that completely changed our perspective on life. A renewal of vows ceremony was our way of celebrating the joy and strength of what we have. Darran understood where we were coming from.

After 20 years of him sleeping with my snoring, and me picking up his clothes from the bathroom floor and still being every bit as in love as the day we met we wanted to renew our vows in an intimate ceremony to commit the next 20 years to loving each other every day. Darran came to our home to help us write the perfect vows that reflected the humour that holds us together, and MC the perfect backyard party to celebrate mine and Justin’s journey.
