Naming Ceremony

Pink and blue bunting Pink and blue bunting

A civil naming ceremony is a symbolic celebration to mark the naming of your child and provides the opportunity for everyone involved to express their commitment to your child in the presence of family and friends.

The ceremony can be bespoke. You can make it unique in many ways: personal promises, music, readings, and thoughtful words from friends and family. These are just a few ways to make your naming ceremony truly exceptional. Your celebrant will create the ceremony with you, transforming your aspirations into reality.

A naming ceremony has no legal status and can be held in a registration office ceremony room, at a licensed venue or at a location of your choice.
