Island Vow Renewal Ceremony


Today is a day of celebration.

We are here, on this Caribbean island, surrounded by incredible beauty

To celebrate life, love, and the beauty of relationships.

But more importantly we are here to celebrate the relationship of two people

Who have come here to continue on their incredible journey and set sail for a wonderful life together.


It is true gift when you find someone in this world that you wish spend the rest of your life with and marry.


But it is a bigger blessing when after years of marriage you look at this person standing next to you

And say you want to do all over again.


The beauty of this marriage, as you know, is that you always continue to learn together and teach each other,

To open each other to explore new ideas, to share life and bring out the very best in one another.

The two of you never lose your freedom by being married because you become freer by being together.

Your worlds become larger and your options more abundant than what would have been alone. What could be more beautiful?

What could be more fun?

The Exchange of Vows

Do you, (groom), promise (bride) to continue to be forever faithful and honest,

To share with her your dreams and your fears, to cherish her for better, for worse,

For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health and to be forever close in your souls?

(groom):" I Do"


Do you, (bride), promise (groom) to continue to be forever faithful and honest,

To share with him your dreams and your fears, to cherish him for better, for worse,

The exchange of rings (You will take your wedding rings off before the ceremony)

Let these rings, which you are about to exchange,

Serve to remind us that a circle is a symbol of the sun, the earth, and the universe.

A circle has no beginning and no ending. It is a symbol of wholeness, peace and completeness.

These rings are very special because they remind us that we are individuals yet we are not alone.

Wear them to tell each other and the whole world that you are in love

With the very special person wearing the other one.


(Groom), place this ring on (bride)'s finger and while holding her hand repeat after me.

I, (groom), give you this ring - and I give you my heart.

May you feel surrounded by my love each time you look at this ring.


(Bride), place this ring on (groom)'s finger and while holding his hand repeat after me.

I, (bride), give you this ring - and I give you my heart.

May you feel surrounded by my love each time you look at this ring.
