We offer naming ceremonies to celebrate the birth of a child or to welcome an adopted child or a step-child into your family. 


These ceremonies are held in our Council Ceremony Rooms or Approved Venues

If you intend to have your ceremony in an Approved Venue you must have discussed dates and times with them before booking our services.


They can be arranged by any parent, from any cultural background or with any religious belief.  The ceremony allows parents to make promises to the child and to each other, introducing sponsors who will take a special interest in the child's upbringing.
