Would you like to write your own vows?
After booking a personal ceremony with us, it probably came as a surprise (or shock) when we
suggested to you and your partner that you should write your own vows. The wedding vows are like the heart of your ceremony. We know, that the idea of writing them can be very unnerving, but using your own words could give your ceremony that personal and intimate touch that will make it a moment to remember.
Vows are not just important as the possible pinnacle of your wedding ceremony, but the process of
writing them gives you the chance to reflect on your partner, yourself and your relationship and the
dynamics that bind you together. While going through this process, you’ll discover a deeper meaning
behind the words “I do”. You will also get a better understanding of what marriage means to you
and the possible expectations from both sides.
