Naming ceremonies

In Gloucestershire we strive to make sure your naming ceremony is a unique and memorable experience.

The naming ceremony is designed to meet the individual needs of the family and provide a dignified and formal opportunity to:

  • celebrate the birth and welcome your child into the family and wider community
  • announce the names that you have chosen and, if desired, explain the reasons behind the choice
  • make promises of commitment to nurture and support your child into adult life
  • choose other adults prepared to promise a special supportive relationship to your child

Naming ceremonies aren't just for babies though, you can welcome a child of any age into a family either through adoption or marriage.  A naming ceremony can make a lovely addition to your civil ceremony; please contact us for further details.

A naming ceremony does not carry any legal status and cannot contain any religious referenceCeremonies can be held at a registration office or at any of the approved venues in Gloucestershire.

Please see our ceremony fees for current price list.
