When you mention ceremonies for Wedding Anniversaries - Are you meaning we organise a Renewal of Marriage Vows?
Not at all.
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony requires the couple to make a public promise that many feel is too personal and intimate for a public occasion.
And certainly surprise renewals are not respectful of the couple, and could back-fire!
Let’s face it – Australians are not known for their romantic and mushy loving ways!
So unless that is a ceremony initiated by both partners, it is much more appropriate to have a family based Wedding Anniversary ceremony focusing on:
- the Marriage itself up until this point in time,
- with maximum participation by family and friends as possible, and
- congratulations and best wishes for the future!
Civil Celebrants are a good way to have someone independent help you plan and deliver a meaningful and personal event.
