Vow Renewal Q&As
What is a vow renewal?
Maybe you want to celebrate a big anniversary, a milestone such as the birth of a child or the achievement of a joint project. Or maybe you didn’t have the wedding of your dreams, have overcome illness or adversity and want to signal a fresh start in your marriage. Whatever the reason and however you choose to celebrate, we’ve got beautiful spaces, great menus and the event expertise to ensure your vow renewal reflects your reasons and is a celebration of your unique marriage.
What is the format?
There are various formats. Many vow renewals follow the daytime timings of a christening with guests gathering for the ceremony itself around midday and celebrating with lunch and drinks during the afternoon. Others start later, around 6:00pm and are followed by a night time party with disco and entertainment. Others still follow a format similar to a traditional wedding with an afternoon ceremony, sit down meal and night time party too! All require a celebrant or somebody to conduct the ceremony. This is a service we can help you to source and will be an additional cost.
How much will it cost?
In addition to our Anniversaries & Vow Renewal Package we have a number of other celebration packages that are well suited to the formats mentioned above including wedding packages. We are also very happy to create a package specifically for you once we understand the nature of the day you are planning. Have a look at the following alternatives to which you can add a ceremony set up. Ceremony set ups usually cost around £200 depending on which room or outdoor area you choose and the numbers you have attending.
What are you planning to wear?
This may seem a strange question for the venue to be asking. However when we start talking about availability and packages, it will be a vital piece of information for us. It will help us to understand what kind of celebration you have in mind and will ultimately affect the cost and the dates available. If you want a vow renewal that is more like a wedding, where the “bride” wears a wedding dress and perhaps has “bridesmaids” to assist, then we would steer you towards an appropriate wedding package. At the Wroxeter we have ample function rooms, ceremony areas and outdoor spaces to successfully conduct numerous functions on any given day. Our award winning events team carefully assess each new function enquiry to ensure that the day’s events are compatible. And in order to ensure our impeccable record, we must insist that there is only ever only one “wedding” per day!
With fewer formalities vow renewals are often booked much closer to the date than weddings. If after talking to us it seems that you are planning a wedding style vow renewal but you do not have the budget for one of our wedding packages, we are sometimes able to offer late availability dates where you may wear a wedding dress but still benefit from the lower prices of the vow renewal or other party packages.
