Top 3 reasons why you should renew your vows

There is a growing trend for couples who are already married to make a new commitment to each other and renew their vows, often spending much more on their vow renewal ceremony than their original wedding! One award winning celebrant looks at the main reasons for the increase in vow renewal ceremonies.

⦁ Your first wedding was out of your hands Whilst the term “arranged marriage” usually applies to two partners being chosen for each other by their families, an “arranged wedding” describes families taking over the organisation of the ceremony from the couple – both can be very good reasons for a vow renewal further down the line. Arranged weddings How many couples have had the organisation of their wedding taken out of their hands by well-meaning parents who are often footing the bill? Perhaps the guest list included distant family members and friends of the couple’s parents with a “traditional” ceremony at a “traditional” venue. Sound familiar?!?

Destination Spain!

Looking for a destination wedding location? Look no further than Spain, the largely undiscovered newest trend for sunshine elopements, vow renewals and wedding ceremonies. Where else can you find palm tree lined beaches, romantic Moorish castles, olive groves stretching beyond the horizon, world class nightlife and free tapas all in one country?! Read our hot tips for getting married in Spain. Dig out your documents The truth is that even if you have Spanish residency, it is very difficult to get married in Spain. Whether you contract a Civil Marriage or a Religious Marriage, the necessary documents are similar, all must be originals and all must be officially translated into Spanish.

Exciting ways to announce you are going to get married!

By ​Christine O'Malley Independent Celebrant   You've decided to get married - so how do you let the world know ? The classic way is to put an announcement into the paper but just in case people miss it take a photo and send it out on social media. Wear  it !  Have matching tee shirts made and wear them on a night out with friends.  That should get the conversation going. Go high tech and make a video.  There are lots of sites where you can create a video for free. Making the video can be great fun - choose some of your favourite places and songs and get creative. When you are done - publish on social media.

Or go all out and have an aeroplane  banner ! Which ever way you choose the announcement is just the beginning of a whole new chapter.  Congrat…

Brides & Butterflies

By Chris O'Malley, Civil Celebrant Symbolic actions - Butterfly release According to Native American folk lore if you catch a butterfly, make a wish and then release the butterfly the Great Spirit will hear your wish and grant it. The butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and colour. There are specialist companies who will provide butterflies for ceremonies. I would advise only releasing native butterflies at a time of year when they would normally be active. On the same theme you could also consider releasing doves. White Doves are a symbol of purity. When release by a couple they can be a visual representation of the new journey on which the couple are embarking, leaving behind the past and moving into the future. The doves are trained to return to their owner. They are are delivered to the ceremony either in a decorative cage or basket which can be opened at the appropriate time. ​ Which would you prefer at your wedding? Tell us To find …
