Renewal of Vows

This type of ceremony is a special opportunity that allows couples to renew their commitment to each other. 

Couples opt to have a renewal of vows ceremony for many different reasons

  • you may be approaching a special anniversary such as the 10th, 25th or 40th
  • you have been married abroad and want to commit in front of a wider group of family You may want to renew your commitment to your relationship after a difficult period
  • you may have converted your civil partnership into a marriage

Whatever the reason we can provide a unique and personal ceremony in which you can renew your vows to each other.

Any couple of any age or gender can arrange a renewal of vows ceremony.  You do not have to live in Hull or have had your original ceremony in Hull to renew your vows here.

A renewal of vows ceremony is divided into sections and can reflect events in your life together.  The different sections give you the chance to create something personal and special to you. 

We will provide a selection of suggested words to use in your ceremony and will then script the ceremony from the selections you make. You also have the freedom to be creative and really personalise the ceremony by writing elements yourself. The ceremony can be as long or short as you make it.

We offer ceremonies in our room at the Guildhall and also at all of our approved premises. 

If you would like to use a different venue, for example a village hall or your own home then this is also possible.  This request would need to be discussed beforehand and be visited by a member of our team to ensure that the venue is suitable.

The fee for the ceremony will vary depending on the day, time and venue that you choose. You will need to contact the specific venue of your choice regarding their availability and their own venue room hire charges.
