Renewing your vows

Posted by Claire Oxenham on April 29, 2013 at 5:05 PM

Wow, I’m a couple of weeks behind on my blogs! sorry I have been a busy celebrant.


This time I want to take a closer look at renewing vows.

Back in the day’s people renewed their vows at the milestones of marriage, 10 years, 25 years, 50 years etc. Well that is still celebrated today and quite rightly so… any one that can work through the ups and downs of marriage to make it that far should have some sort of celebration, particularly where we are now in a society where a divorce can almost be settled on your lunch break.

But what of my couples who have only been together a short while…. Why do they do it??

Don’t get me wrong if a client chooses not to tell me then that’s their prerogative, after all I feel it’s not my place to ask.

But whatever the reason it’s important to them, maybe they feel the need not to renew their vows but it’s more like a strengthening of them, putting more cement on their marriage, and saying “yes you are still the one and I’m still here by your side with you”.

We need that person to hold us up when we are down and in turn we hold them up.

But hopefully with the ceremonies I write for them, I leave them with an imprint on their hearts as they close the door to the past, and open the door to their future.

Got you thinking……. Hope so!!

See you soon
