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.

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?
