Naming ceremonies

We offer Naming Ceremonies for those who wish to celebrate the birth of a new baby or welcome an adopted child or stepchild to their family. We have a variety of days and times available and can tailor a ceremony to your requirements. Our ceremony room holds up to 60 guests.

A naming ceremony can be held for children of all ages and for more than one child in the same family. A typical ceremony has seven elements:

  • introduction and welcome
  • readings
  • naming the child or children
  • promises by parents
  • promises by supporting adults
  • signing the commemorative certificate
  • closing words

If you are interested in finding out more please email our ceremonies team with your name and telephone number.

Fees may be found on our fees page. You must read our terms and conditions before making a booking.
