Renewal of Vows


Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the romantic places in Canada, if not the continent. With its manicured lawns, flowing gardens, quaint shops, five star hotels and restaurants, fabulous wineries and attractions, it has become the "go to" place for couples looking for a romantic getaway.

Why not make it an extra special visit and have a renewal or recommitment ceremony here at Spirit of Love Chapel with Rev Deb?


What is a Renewal of Vows Ceremony?

A Renewal of Vows ceremony is a way to reaffirm your wedding vows to each other. 


It is a ceremony in which you will once more agree to the vows you have made. We offer a very simple, meaningful ceremony that not only affirms and honours the commitment you have shared, but expresses your dreams and aspirations for the next part of your life together, or, with Deborah's assistance, you can create a more personalized service


When is a Renewal of Vows appropriate?

Often couples choose to renew their vows on milestone anniversaries, such as the 10th, 25th, and so on. This is a special way to honour the years that have passed since the wedding while attesting that the love that brought you together remains as vital and strong as ever - or even more so.


Ceremonies of Renewal are also appropriate when couples have married without their loved ones' presence. Instead, they may have eloped, had a very small private service, or married out of town or country. If they wish to celebrate their union with family and friends who were not present at the wedding, a Renewal ceremony makes that possible.


Finally, Renewal ceremonies are appropriate anytime couples wish to reaffirm their dedication to their marriage and each other. They may have surmounted difficulties such as marital problems, illness, or disaster. Perhaps they have reached a milestone in their life together - a special birthday, a new home or job, the last of the children leaving home. A renewal of commitment is a lovely way to open a new chapter of your life as a couple.

What does a Renewal of Vows Service consist of?

Typically, the service will include a welcome, readings, and vow renewal. You may wish to exchange new rings or rededicate your old ones. We have options to fit your budget and plans.


How formal is a Renewal of Vows Ceremony?
As formal as you like! Some couples elect to renew vows in their own living room or backyard,with guests dressed casually. Others choose a lavish affair complete with caterers, tuxedos, gowns, and an orchestra. Guests may be treated to a reception afterward with champagne toasts, or a comfortable barbeque with colas and beer. It's entirely up to you.
