Civil Partnership Ceremony – The Tower Belle, River Avon

Our guests were as charmed by Rosalind as we were; her ready smile and great sense of humour won everyone over. She found a balance of seriousness and silliness and really got a sense of who we are and what we value.

. . . Described by many as 'being a joy to work with'.  One person said it was as though they had 'a very close family member' conducting the ceremony. . .

Rosalind Love Celebrant- Other Ceremonies Cropped

There are times in our lives when a ceremony can really help to mark a special event.  As a celebrant I can help create and conduct a unique and personal ceremony for you – whatever your occasion. Two of the most popular ceremonies are a Renewal of Vows and a Commitment Ceremony.

Renewal of Vows

For couples who wish to reaffirm their vows and commitment to each other. A Renewal of Vows Ceremony may suit you if:

  • you are celebrating a significant wedding anniversary
  • you desire a more meaningful ceremony than was possible when you got married
  • you have overcome recent challenges together

A Renewal of Vows Ceremony gives you the opportunity to reflect on your relationship so far and to focus on how you both wish your relationship to develop and grow in the future.

Commitment Ceremony

For couples who wish to affirm their commitment and love for each other but do not wish to enter a legal marriage or civil partnership.

Rosalind Love Celebrant Packages for Renewal of Vows or Commitment Ceremonies normally include:

  • an in-depth meeting when I can listen to you and understand what you want.  We can discuss content, readings, vows, and symbolic actions, and whether you want these to be religious or spiritual in any way.   We can also discuss how you may wish to include others within the ceremony.
  • a first draft of your ceremony that we share, giving you the opportunity to request any changes
  • further drafts and a final ceremony script
  • your ceremony being conducted at the venue of your choice
  • a presentation script as a lasting keepsake of your ceremony


As Renewal of Vows and Commitment Ceremonies vary so widely, I will provide you with a personalised package and fee depending on your individual circumstances and location of your Ceremony. For instance, a Commitment Ceremony that is akin to a Wedding Ceremony will command a higher fee than a Renewal of Vows when only the couple is present. I do not charge for travel within the city of Bristol. Beyond Bristol I will charge for travel and will keep these costs to a minimum. If your Ceremony venue operates as a charity or social enterprise, I will donate 5% of this fee to the venue.  Recent beneficiaries have been Doynton Village Hall, Redcatch Community Garden, Arnos Vale Cemetery, Batheaston Village Hall, Frenchay Village Hall and Winterbourne Medieval Barn Trust

Other significant life events

Other significant life events that you may wish to mark with a ceremony include coming of age, milestone birthdays and divorce healing.  Please contact me if you’d like me to consider any of these or another ceremony that you have in mind. Please get in touch about your renewal of vows, commitment and other ceremonies >
