Renewing your vows
How and when you can renew your vows in a civil ceremony.
If you have previously had a legally recognised marriage or civil partnership ceremony, you can renew your vows in a civil ceremony.
Renewing your vows is an opportunity to reaffirm your commitment to each other in a personalised ceremony with your loved ones. This is a wonderful way to celebrate a special anniversary or a renewed commitment to one another.
Additionally, if you had your marriage or civil partnership ceremony abroad and would like a formal ceremony with friends and family in the UK, a renewal of vows ceremony may be the right option for you.
The ceremony has no legal standing and is non-religious.
Choosing a venue
If you decide to have your renewal of vows ceremony in Westminster, there are a number of venues for you to choose from, including:
- Westminster Register Office's ceremony rooms at the iconic Old Marylebone Town Hall

The ceremony fee is dependent upon your chosen venue.
