A renewal of vows ceremony is a celebration of marriage where a couple renews or reaffirms their wedding vows. Though a renewal of vows or commitment ceremony is not needed for any legal reason, a professional and qualified civil marriage can help you craft a beautiful ceremony that you and your loved ones will remember for the rest of your lives.
Think of it this way; Your wedding ceremony was a public commitment to one another. A renewal of vows is a celebration of your success in marriage, your achievements togetherhood, and your future. Because all legal obligations of marriage are already completed, a renewal of vows is something a married couple does simply because they wish to.
Additionally, couples who have been separated and are now reunited may wish to do a renewal of vowels to celebrate their reunion, and renew their commitment. Sometimes due to a variety of circumstances, a couple may not have had the wedding they desired and use the renewal of vows ceremony to celebrate their union in a way that they weren’t able to before.

Put simply; you can renew your vows whenever you wish. It is a personal ceremony that can be conducted at any time in your life that you feel it is appropriate to recommit to your partner. Couples often hold the renewal of vows ceremonies on milestone anniversaries, or after significant events in their lives, such as having children or entering retirement together. The ceremony can be a way to reaffirm your love and commitment going into this next chapter of your lives.
