We offer a secular naming ceremony as a perfect opportunity to celebrate the birth of a baby or welcome adopted or stepchildren into your wider family circle.
Our experienced registrar officers will facilitate the ceremony and ensure proceedings run smoothly. We can be flexible with what is read and will meet with you before to discuss exactly what you want.
Before your ceremony can take place, at least one guardian of the child must come for an appointment at our Registrar Office. This is to run over the script and verify the child’s birth certificate, and will take no longer than 30 minutes.
A £50 non-refundable deposit must be paid at this appointment, which will be taken off the overall fee of the ceremony.
To book a naming ceremony email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and requested date. We'll get back to you with an appointment time.
|Monday to Thursday||£210|
|Friday and Saturday||£260|
The price above is for ceremonies in the Ceremony Suite.
Naming ceremonies can take place in other rooms in the Town Hall for an additional fee.
