The Reverend Andrew Smith said: “This exceptional celebration will provide wedded couples with an opportunity to revitalize their commitment to one another.

“Any married couple wishing to reaffirm the love that has matured and deepened can renew their vows at this service.

“It does not matter where their wedding took place as long as both feel that the time is right.”
