I’ve never heard of anyone in the UK doing a vow renewal. As your marriage is already legal, would you be able to go the registry office if there is nothing to register?

If you’re religious you could look into having a blessing at a church. When we got married in the Church of England, they had a price for a small blessing ceremony (I think it was about £100). If you’re not religious, could you just find someone to read your vows and go to a public park or a pretty place? Pick a spot in the UK for your mini break and get someone there to just read them? Or altnerarively just say your vows to each other again and have your photographer capture it because it doesn’t need to be legal or binding so there shouldn’t be anything stopping you?

barbie86 :  My Aunt and Uncle had one for their 25th Anniversary. They went to the church they got married at and had their original minister perform the ceremony! It was a lovely day.

I would think you could get away with a celebrant as it doesn’t need to be legally binding, and you wouldn’t have to worry about using an approved venue that way. 

My Aunt and Uncle did Afternoon tea after theirs at the village hall, it was very low key but very pleasant – I had far too much cake lol

Do you have any faith or spiritual beliefs? If so I’d just pick an officiant from that group and have your private blessing with the vows you write yourself. 

Theres no certificate as such as there’s nothing legal to certify but perhaps an arty friend could make something up for you both to sign along with the person doing your blessing if you’d like a keepsake. 

We had a humanist wedding. It was perfect for us. If you feel humanism suits your feelings you can contact them?

making it a little holiday with a beach blessing sounds lovely for the two of you.
