Dear Miriam: Taking one more vow.
Dear Miriam THIS year my husband and I celebrate out 30th anniversary. We love each other as much as we did when we started married life.
A few years ago I didn't think I would be around to share this special day with him and our family because I had breast cancer.
Thankfully, I feel on top of the world again and what would make me really happy is to renew our marriage vows with our children and grandchildren by our side. How do you go about this?
WHAT a lovely idea. The big question is to decide whether you want a religious service or a civil one.
The ceremony can be personalised. You may include readings, re-exchange wedding rings and make a selection of personal vows of commitment.
For a ceremony in a church, talk to your local priest or vicar. For one at a register office, contact the office to make the arrangements. For a ceremony at an approved venue, such as a hotel, contact the venue and also the local register office.
A souvenir certificate can be signed during the ceremony.
