VOW RENEWAL CEREMONIES
There are many reasons why a couple renew their vows of marriage including an anniversary, a birthday, retirement or other significant occasion during their journey together.
A vow renewal ceremony is an opportunity for a couple celebrate and remember the vows they shared when they got married. It is a time for celebrating their love for each other and their journey together through the good times and the challenging times.
I will work with you to create a ceremony that celebrates your journey together in married life.
Your ceremony will be crafted as you wish, involving all those who have travelled your journey with you.

If you’re looking for the best Celebrant for your wedding or vow renewal in Ireland, look no further - you just found him!
My husband and I decided to renew our vows for our 20th anniversary. I didn’t even know where to begin, but I stumbled across Michael’s site and from then on all the pieces came together.
Michael was absolutely extraordinary!! It all started with a few emails, followed by zoom meetings so we could plan our special day!
He went so far and above any expectation I had. He helped me find an amazing photographer and his close friend to play the harp for us (flawlessly) - literally bringing my dream to life!!
To say Michael was instrumental in making our day perfect is an understatement. The fact of the matter is, we could not have done it without him!!
I strongly recommend him for any need you may have, he is absolutely amazing!!
Kelly and Tom - July 2022
After much planning for our 10-year anniversary trip to Ireland, we were so fortunate to find Michael Grace. He turned our black-and-white vision into technicolor by combining the colors of the U.S. flag (our home) and Irish flag (our ancestry) into a meaningful handfasting ceremony. We loved every minute. We encourage any Notre Dame fans and classmates who will be in Dublin this August for the big game to check out Michael's website. He made our day special and memorable.
