The Vow Renewal Ceremony for Kim and Nigel was a complete surprise for them. Planned down to the last detail by their daughter Nikki, who was ably supported by their youngest daughter JoJo, it was held in a very quaint village hall with bunting, cakes and lots of music. A break in the torrential rain from the previous day meant that the afternoon had a magical and exciting feel to it.
Kim and Nigel were driven to the hall by their friends in silver cars emblazoned with purple ribbon. Thinking it was a surprise birthday party, they were greeted with the announcement that they were about to take part in their own Vow Renewal. A fabulous couple, they took it all in their stride and were surrounded by their family and friends as the ceremony took place.
We spent time with Nikki before the ceremony talking about Kim and Nigel, finding out what was important to them and what they loved about each other. We also provided Nikki with our Wedding Book which contains many wonderful ideas while she was thinking about the ceremony.
We used a specially prepared script to make the Vow Renewal Ceremony personal to Kim and Nigel and included a Hand Ceremony using beautifully vibrant purple and red ribbons and a re-dedication of the wedding rings they have worn so lovingly for twenty years. The vows were written and read by their daughters and were very special, tender and meaningful.
It proved to be a wonderfully emotional, yet happy, ceremony. There were tears, cheers, laughter and applause throughout and the celebrations continued into the evening with singing and entertainment provided by all.
Nikki sent us a wonderful message the following day: “Thank you so so much for yesterday and everything you have done. It was perfect and the photos are amazing! I honestly cannot thank you enough and everyone kept saying how amazing you were, so thank you xxx”.
We were made to feel very welcome and had a fabulous time with Kim and Nigel, their famiy and friends. We wish them many more years of love, happiness and laughter together.
