I assume that you can renew your vows anywhere that you want as it is not a legal ceremony requiring a licence. Purely a personal occasion. If you were married in a church maybe you would like to have the "ceremony" in a church. Perhaps on the beach or on a clifftop overlooking the beach.

Do you want a minister/priest? Are you staying in a hotel? They are used to having occasions of this kind and can probably help you.

Let us know if we can help you track down more information if this is not sufficient.

We will be in Bermuda for 3 days with a cruise. We did not have a Church wedding first time but would like maybe a Church or Beach ceremony.

We can do it on the ship but it will be a group ceremony wit ther couples so was thinking maybe if we could get it done in Bermuda would be nicer.

We would like someone to officiate at it for us and not worried about photographer etc as hopefully will be someone handy to take a few pictures with our own camera for us.

Thanks

For a relatively small,simple vow renewal ceremony on a Bermuda beach, there are any number of idyllic locations along Bermuda's magnificent south shore....30-35 minute taxi ride from your King's/Heritage Wharf cruise ship pier. No special permits would be required One spot in particular that's very popular are the grassy cliff tops above the lovely, little ASTWOOD COVE at ASTWOOD PARK...with spectacular south shore ocean views. For such ceremonies down on the beach, many of the lovely beaches of SOUTH SHORE PARK, between the sweeping crescent of HORSESHOE BAY beach and the long thin strand at WARWICK LONG BAY beach would serve the purpose quite nicely. You've only to decide which of the many alternative spots suits might suit you best (''..this sand is too Pink...this ocean is too blue...this spot is juuuuust right...').

For an '..officiant..' at such a vow renewal ceremony, you could contact any of the many churches in Bermuda. I used to have the business card of a local taxi driver who was also an ordained minister and used to double as both transportation to and from the selected location as well an (for a modest fee)...but alas his card is lost and I can't for the life of me recall his name.

For what it's worth, these days almost anyone (even convicted felons) can be '..ordained..' on-line and print-out a lovely, ready-to-frame certificate on their home computer, from several internet '..ministries..'....add a suitably ecclesiastical 'stole' and prayer book (shoes not required) and they're good to officiate at your vow renewal..
