1 What is a renewal of vows ceremony?
The renewal of vows ceremony has no legal status, but offers an alternative way for couples who are married or in a civil partnership, to celebrate a very special occasion with friends and family.
You can renew your vows at any time.
2 Where to hold the ceremony
The ceremony can take place at either:
- our County Council owned ceremony rooms (with the exception of the West Sussex Register Office)
- an approved venue licensed for civil ceremonies
- a venue of your choice, such as a village hall, private home or somewhere that has a special significance for you (subject to a health and safety check undertaken by a registrar).
Once you have chosen a venue you need to book a registrar for your ceremony.
