Have you spent hours wondering what it is you can gift your soul mate and you just cant think of it. You reach an age when everything you want- you get and everything you need -you already have. And clutter is so last century. Here's a wonderful romantic present idea that will keep you clutter free and win you lots of love points. A voucher to Renew your Vows.
So how does a Vow renewal work- and who is having them?
Well its as easy and as fuss free as you want it to be. I’ve been to Vow renewals where the couple were celebrating their anniversary and the wife had organised the renewal ceremony as a surprise for her husband and it was just the two of them, like an elopement, with just myself and the photographer present.
I’ve also done vow renewals that were big events, a true celebration of the nuptials that made many years before and a celebration of the years of marriage that have been shared. At those events, many of the same people who attended the first wedding will be present for the Renewal, sometimes the same members of the bridal party are there and they can be recognised for their place in the original marriage ceremony and the continued support that they have offered the couple. As well as the family and the friends who were present for the first wedding, there will be new family (those that weren’t born yet and those that have since married into the family) and new friends that have been made on the wedded journey.
A renewal is a chance to be thankful not only to your partner for their love, patience and dedication to your marriage but also to be thankful for the life that you have created together and all the people you get to share it with.
Many people believe that entering into marriage is the final step in a romantic relationship. As they see it, a couple meet, they get to know each other and then fall in love. They then decides they want to go through life together and so they take the final step—marriage.
But marriage is not meant to be the final step in a couple’s relationship—it is really just the beginning of a grand adventure. It is an adventure that may or may not have you create your own family, you may travel- near or far, you may change your career or you may decide to ‘flip a house’ or (as we are) owner builder a home together.
On the day that you reconfirm your commitment to each other – you are reconfirming working together to make your marriage grow and blossom in the years to come. In the ceremony you renew the vows that you took on your wedding day, and remind yourselves that despite the stresses inevitable in everyday life, your love, respect, trust and understanding of each other will continue to increase your contentment and heighten your joy in living.
If you’d like to renew your vows, or perhaps you would like to organise a special day for a special anniversary you can get in contact with me to discuss it some more.
