"Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be", Robert Browning
There are many reasons couples give for renewing their marriage vows; for example - surviving illness, celebrating a special anniversary, overcoming personal challenges or temptations, and just sheer love and gratitude for their other half. Many have a strong desire for their children to witness them renewing their vows in re-dedication to each other.
As couples reach a milestone wedding anniversary they often think about renewing their vows to celebrate their relationship, their partnership and everything that this has brought them. Some like to make things different from their wedding day with a vow renewal ceremony, while others like to try, as far as possible, to replicate their original wedding ceremony.
Very occasionally something was not right for a couple on their wedding day; perhaps their photos have been spoiled or lost, (Diana has received bookings in the past for both these reasons), and they feel the need to take their marriage vows again so that all their enduring memories are recaptured forever.
But choosing the right words that both partners are happy with, and the right format for the ceremony, can be difficult.
By listening to your own personal love story, and exchanging ideas, Diana Saxby of Grace The Day will help you find the perfect words, so you can share your life’s journey together with your friends and family, woven into the vows that you will exchange with each other on the day.
"The eloquence and sincerity with which you delivered your meticulous and touching words truly made our occasion…rest assured you have played a truly magical part in our on-going fairytale and we will remember all you have done for us for the rest of our lives."

"We were both delighted with the sense of fun allied to the serious nature of the vows. Our friends thought you were superb! We would recommend you at once to anyone we know."
