Fifth Time Around Vow Renewal at a Secret Location in Berlin

Mina and Nathan didn’t want their wedding day to be the ‘one big day of their lives’, so instead decided to celebrate their wedding day every single year! This year was their fifth vow renewal (!) and it was the right amount of crazy and weird, laid back and a little industrial.

“We have lived together in many beautiful different places around the world,” began Mina, “but there is something particularly special about Berlin and it’s vibes. It’s a place where it’s seems everybody can choose for themselves how to live. It is an absolutely mixed city, culturally and architecturally, and is a place of contrast and individual perspective. Ugly can be beautiful, chaotic and messy can be perfectly organised, rude can be friendly. All of this was an inspiration to us for our wedding renewal and the reason why we wanted it to be in Berlin.”

Brandi and Josh first met at a local coffee house after being set up by some of Brandi’s co-workers. Their coffee date lasted five hours getting and the rest is history! They decided to elope, and then, eight years later, had a vow renewal with family and friends present.

“When Josh and I first married almost eight years ago, we were so young and very in love. We didn’t have a lot of money or a clear vision for our ‘dream day’”, said Brandi. “Honestly, we just wanted to commit our lives to one another.”

“The theme for our vow renewal was industrial and we focused on one-of-a-kind pieces and décor. It reflected us and both our personalities in the best possible way. Our vow renewal celebration was even better than our wedding day because this time we have history, we have memories, and we have a deeper love than we could ever have imagined.”

Imagine renewing your vows at Burning Man, not planning to have a photographer, but then a professional wedding photographer walks past and offers to shoot your ceremony for free! That’s exactly what happened to Kirsty and Amir.

“The whole thing was pulled together in just a few days before the ceremony so it was very low key and we just used what we had”, began Kirsty. “Nothing, apart from what we wore, was planned in advance. The idea to use the bikes to crate an aisle happened when we all arrived at the Grove.”

Sarah and Josh were married in 2004. After being together for so long, and having two kids, they decided to renew their vows in June of this year.

“We’ve been together a long time and our kids are out of the ‘little’ kid phase”, said Sarah. “I feel like we are entering a new chapter in our lives together as a family and thought this would be a great way to enter into that and also allow our children to be a part of such a special ceremony.”

“Josh is a tattoo artist and specialises in American traditional which uses bright bold colours. We both love Dia De Los Muertos art and Catholic art, which all use bright bold colours, too so what better than to go with that theme for our vow renewal? I knew we were going to have all these amazing bright flowers, so I wanted our attire to be pretty neutral. Plus I wore a red dress for our actual wedding, so I wanted to wear white for the renewal.”

Tawnee and Luis, high school sweethearts, were married after thirteen years together. Five years later they decided to renew their vows in – where else? – Las Vegas!

“We wanted to take a spin on the traditional, ‘run off to Vegas and elope’ idea,” said Tawnee. “Having been married for five years, we really wanted to renew our vows, update the promises we’d made, create new ones for what lies ahead, and really embrace our love. We are both now in the wedding industry and we see lots of designs and ideas that we wished we had done five years ago. This was a way to spark our own creative touch for ourselves.”

“We felt that Vegas was the perfect setting, a simple getaway from San Diego and a place already known for losing inhibitions. We wanted to renew, get boozed and tattooed!”

“For the ceremony we used an awesome pop up wedding trailer!” she continued. “Flora Pop, based out of Las Vegas, pulled up with the coolest vintage teardrop trailer to officiate our vow renewal. We chose the Kings Row Rv Trailer Park as our location; one for nostalgia, two because of the vibrant teal pool. She definitely added the unique, out of the box vibe we wanted.”

Sparkly, DIY Vow Renewal at Home

Sam and Timm were married ten years ago in Vegas. They wanted to renew their vows and so they invited all their friends and family to a party in their own back garden.

“We had originally planned to have a big wedding ten years ago, but we had a few hiccups so we decided to run off to Vegas, keep things small and get married by Elvis instead!” Sam began. “We’d always wanted a big wedding though, so renewing our vows was our chance to do just that. As we didn’t need to worry about any of the legal stuff, we hosted it at home so we could have everything exactly to our taste. We didn’t want to have compromises or restrictions this time!”

The couple have had a tough few years with Sam being very ill, so the vow renewal was also a really amazing way for them to celebrate coming out the other side. “Our renewal fell a year after, almost to the day, of my first life saving surgery so it was a really poignant moment”, she continued. “I had struggled enormously with my self esteem and confidence after the surgeries left my body totally changed. The day was just so amazing. I loved all of it. It was the best day ever from start to finish.”
