Renewal of vows ceremonies


A renewal of vows ceremony is unique, personal and dedicated to you as a married couple or as civil partners to celebrate a special anniversary or to renew your commitment to each other in front of family and friends.

Although there is no legal status, they are no less important for all those involved. The ceremony can take place at Stockton Register Office, any of our Approved Premise venues, or an alternative venue of your choice (with the exception of any religious building). The venue does not have to be in the area you are currently residing in.

The ceremony includes:

  • Celebrant welcome
  • Readings
  • Renewing of vows to each other
  • Acknowledging children/extended family (optional)
  • Rings ceremony - exchanging or rededicating rings
  • Conclusion of the ceremony
