Naming Ceremony

A naming ceremony is a non-religious way of celebrating the birth of a new baby or welcoming adopted or stepchildren into the family. Children of any age can have a naming ceremony, you may wish to include older children as well as your new child. The ceremony will be conducted by a celebrant Registrar.

Renewal of vows

Renewal of vows is a unique celebration of a continuing relationship. It could be that you are celebrating a special anniversary or perhaps your ceremony was abroad and you would like to celebrate the event with your family and friends who could not be with you on the day.
