What is a baby naming ceremony?

A naming ceremony is a very special way of celebrating the birth of your child and welcoming the new arrival into the family and wider community.

Each unique ceremony is individually scripted within the Civil Ceremonies Ltd framework. It is an opportunity to declare, before your family and friends, your promise to be as good a parent as you can. Friends and relatives can also confirm their special relationship with your child.

Please contact us for further information.
