Words and Wisdom bespoke vows + rings | examples
Yvette and Heidi
Yvette and Heidi plan to walk into their civil wedding ceremony together, hand in hand, likely with the biggest smiles on their faces.
They’ve actually really enjoyed their wedding planning. They may not have the biggest budget but they’ve gone the extra mile in making their day as personal as possible. Knowing this was their aim all along, their best friends Penny and Anthony clubbed together when they got engaged to buy them a gift voucher for their vows and exchange of rings.
Liaising with their Registrars to confirm possibilities, we work together to create the most tender statement vows they’ll keep as a surprise from one another until the day. They’re designed to entirely complement one another though, just as Yvette and Heidi do.
On the day, there isn’t a dry eye after their entrance, but there’s a very special kind of silence when they read their unique vows.
Annabelle and Quinn
Annabelle and Quinn are lucky enough to be marrying in a church that has a great significance to them: where Annabelle’s parents married 40 years ago and Quinn’s niece and nephew were christened.
Their Vicar, Peter, embraces both the new and the old and so is keen to learn more about the idea of bespoke vows being shared as well as the statutory wording they’re obliged to have.
The couple really enjoy sharing the tasks I set them, getting so much out of the discussions they have. Having decided on a format and shared content with one another, we then work together to shape the words and add some individual flourishes.
Not only do the vows say all that is important to Quinn and Annabelle to personally be able to promise one another as loved ones bear witness, but they also offer Peter valuable insight into the couple he’s marrying.
