Renewal of Vows / Commitment Ceremonies

Couples often choose to renew their vows on a significant anniversary, such as their 10th or 25th. Those who have married interstate or overseas, often choose to have another ceremony shortly after their marriage, or on their first anniversary, in order to include family and friends who missed out the first time.

A 'commitment' ceremony is a public declaration of love. It may be between a couple who do not wish to have a legal ceremony, same-sex couples or those who are otherwise legally unable to marry.

Essentially, both the 'renewal of vows' and 'commitment' ceremonies are quite similar to a wedding ceremony, but without the legal components, including the 'Celebrant Authority' and the legal vows. There is no official certificate to sign, but a 'Renewal of Vows' or 'Commitment' certificate will be provided.
