Your

Vow Renewal

Ceremony

Renew, Redo, Refresh

Renew – Life moves, we evolve as people and our relationships shift and change too. We wouldn’t be human if they didn’t. You’ve been through some stuff, maybe it nearly tore you apart, maybe it made you stronger together. You want to celebrate your victory over the crisis. It’s time to remember what bought you together and what keeps on keeping you together.

Redo – A completely new set of promises to reflect where you are both at right now and, more importantly, where you are heading. Perhaps your original wedding day and wedding vows didn’t represent the essence of your partnership or reflect your personalities and values. Now is your chance to do it your way

Refresh – Finding yourselves still connected and still in love is truly worth celebrating. Remind yourselves of the original promises made, reaffirm those promises again, maybe ‘update’ them to reflect new life circumstances – kids grown up, a change of roles, a change of career.

I’ve got you.

You’ve chosen to renew, now choose to do it your way!

Here’s your chance to do it again, in a way you choose with the people around you that you want to share the moment. Or maybe this time you just want it to be the two of you? Whether you choose to go all out with a crowd or just an intimate moment for the two of you, the choice is all yours.

I will create your ceremony with you as you share the moments that bought you to this point. You may well give me your life story, but my thoughtful questions will make the process seamless and enjoyable for you, as well as giving me the information I need to create the moment. We can have as many conversations as you need to get the ceremony right and you can also choose to see the script as it evolves.

I will take your story of shared experiences and new beginnings and weave that into a ceremony written just for you.

We chose Elizabeth to be our celebrant to perform the ceremony, and we were so happy that she did. She wrote a touching and memorable tribute to our relationship.

She is absolutely the best!

How we create your Vow Renewal Ceremony in Greece

We will arrange a meeting or a Skype call first and I will ask you both a few questions to get an idea in my mind for how you want the ceremony to feel.

‘What do you want your ceremony to feel like’ is one of the most important questions I ask you. This is how I will understand what ‘special’ means to you and how to shape the ceremony accordingly.

What if we don’t get along?

Hey, it happens!  It’s very important to have a good ‘fit’ with your Wedding Celebrant. If you (or I) feel after our skype call that we are not quite right for each other then I can recommend you fellow Celebrants, no hard feelings and no questions asked.

We’ve skyped and we all love each other. What’s next?

It’s not just me doing all the work here. This ceremony is all about you two – so I need the lowdown, the good the bad and the ugly, the wondrous moments that have led you to the momentous decision to continue to share the rest of your lives together.

Don’t worry – my carefully honed questionnaires will get all the information I need. All I need from you is a little time investment to fill them out – don’t sweat it, you’ll love them!

I am so pleased, proud, and happy that we chose you and you chose us. It was wonderful, everyone there enjoyed it and commented.

Can we see the ceremony script?

Absolutely! You can look over everything from the first draft to the final copy. This way we can all be sure that the ceremony is everything you both imagined it to be – and then some!

Of course you can also put all your trust in me and hear it for the first time on the day, it’s up to you.

What about those Wedding Vows?

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE CEREMONY! And you can choose to repeat the originals, write brand, spanking new ones or update the old ones.

And if you need help to decide or to rewrite – I’m right here for you!

Traditions, symbolic acts and including others in the ceremony

Let’s keep in any traditions you want (and like) and let’s NOT keep in the ones you don’t. How does that sound?

Your wedding ceremony was jam-packed full of symbolism and there’s no reason why your vow renewal ceremony can’t be also.

When you book your ceremony you will receive my ‘All you need to know’ guide on wedding unity rituals. Explore everything from the Greek wedding crowns to Unity cocktails – find one that speaks to you and let’s include it to renew!

Use my tried and tested ‘4 simple steps to re-write awesome personal wedding vows’ or craft new ones. Or get one-on-one help from me to perfect your new promises!

Overwhelm-free zone

I know there can be a lot to organise on top of actual, real, everyday life. You will probably also have a plethora of communications as well from your event planner or other suppliers. So all our documents (questionnaires, invoices) are kept in your own portal which you can access any time.

All the resources for your ceremony (unity ritual guide, 4 simple steps to writing personal vows, Readings library) are waiting for you in the ‘Couples Lounge’ area on my website, a password-protected area just for my couples.

Renew your wedding vows in a ceremony that’s a fun, uplifting, and enlightening celebration of your love!

Communication

Good communication is key – I am a native English speaker so nothing will get lost in translation and your ceremony will be heard clearly.

I also speak Greek and have lived a Greek life for nearly 30 years, so I get the local customs and traditions and we can easily incorporate them into your ceremony.

There is no cap on our conversations either – we can email, message or skype as much as is needed.

The Big Day (and the day before)

Before you know it, it’s here! And you will both be as cool as cucumbers because we will either have had a physical rehearsal on site the day before or at least a walk through over a call.

(Ok, you won’t be quite that cool because it will be roasting hot and you will be ridiculously excited because it’s going to be such a beautiful day. But you know what I mean)

How much does it cost?

The real answer to this is that it’s priceless.  Included in the price below are the following:

  • A ceremony created and written just for you so that your ceremony is as original and special as your love for each other
  • Me on the day to perform your ceremony! I never book more than one wedding per day so that my focus is 100% on your day
  • 
No cap on communication by email, messaging and Skype or ceremony tweaking so that your ceremony is just the way you want it
  • A portal with all your information to hand – invoices, receipt, questionnaires – so that everything to do with your ceremony is kept in one place easy to access, private place
.
  • The ‘couples lounge’ – a password protected area on the website with a host of resources for you to access at any time: so that you can ponder unity rituals, reading, inspiration and advice at your leisure
  • One-on-one help with writing vows, if you want it
  • a physical rehearsal or a virtual walkthrough before the ceremony, as necessary so we know where we will be on the day
  • I will arrive an hour before the start of the ceremony to make sure everything is in place so you don’t have to worry
  • 
I will create a commemorative certificate for you to sign at the end of the ceremony or just to take home as a keepsake
  • 
I will give you a copy of your ceremony (the one without my scribbled notes on) either on a USB or printed as you request.
  • All my travel expenses
