Civil Partnership vows

During your ceremony you may say the words of the following vows, although there is no requirement to do so. If you wish to say the vows to each other, please choose your words from the options below.

(Please note that you do not have to say the same choice as your partner; you may make different choices)

A. I partner 1 … pledge to share my life with partner 2 … I promise to cherish and tenderly care for you … to honour and encourage you. I will respect you as an individual … and be true to you … through the good times and bad … to these things I give my word

B. I partner 1 … pledge to share my life with partner 2 …from this moment on … I ask you to be with me on our journey …to share our dreams …go forward together … and to be my companion along the way

C. In the presence of our witnesses and guests… I partner 1 … choose you partner 2 … above all others …. To be my partner in law

Please indicate your choice of vows on the Notes for Ceremony form. The Civil Partnership Registrar will guide you through everything you need to do or say, so there is no need to learn or write down your vows.
