Births, marriages, deaths and nationality Renewal of marriage and civil partnership vows

If you want to celebrate a special anniversary, such as a silver wedding, you can book a personal ceremony to renew your vows and your commitment to each other.

A Renewal of Vows Ceremony can be held in the Pankhurst Suite at the Manchester Register Office or at another venue of your choice within the Manchester City Council boundary.

Venues do not need a licence for this type of ceremony, but they must be approved by us before a Renewal of Vows Ceremony can take place there.

All venues that have a licence for marriages have also been approved for Renewal of Vows Ceremonies.
