Make your vows again

Have your say

Married couples are being invited to mark the royal wedding in a very memorable way – by renewing their own wedding vows.

Rev Ralph Lawrence, of All Saints Church, in Ashover, has invited couples to take part in a vows renewal ceremony two days after the big event in London.

The ceremony will form part of a special Songs of Praise service on Sunday, May 1, at 10.45am.

Rev Lawrence said: “Many people liked the idea of having a special event to mark the royal wedding and the chance to renew wedding vows as a group seemed to be very popular.

Everyone is welcome.”

The Songs of Praise service traditionally marks the beginning of Ashover’s May Day Carnival.
