Renewal of Vows / Commitment Ceremonies

Renewal of Vows Ceremonies

This ceremony is for couples who are already married or have entered into a Civil Partnership and who want to renew their vows.

You don’t have to live in the area where you hold your ceremony.

The ceremony itself can take place in a number of different places in Southend-on-Sea:

A Celebrant will be appointed to conduct your ceremony and can also help plan it.

The ceremony must not have any religious content. A renewal of vows has no legal effect and is not legally binding on those involved. You will also need to ask two people to witness the signing of the certificate of the event.

A renewal of vows will usually last between 15 and 30 minutes, this will depend on the number of options and readings you choose.

If you wish to book a renewal of vows ceremony, please use our online booking form.

You can also contact the Register Office, who will be able to advise you on approved premises, available dates, and fees.

Please note: your Certificate of marriage or Civil Partnership will need to be shown before a ceremony can be booked.

Commitment Ceremonies

We also offer Commitment Ceremonies for adult couples of any gender who wish to celebrate their commitment to each other without undergoing a marriage or civil partnership. These ceremonies carry no legal status.

The Jubilee Room and the Victoria Room are ideal venues in which to hold your ceremony. The Registrations team can provide full details about the cost and availability of these rooms.

A Celebrant will be appointed to conduct your ceremony and can also help plan it.
