Arrange a civil naming ceremony
Naming ceremonies have no legal significance but are an opportunity for family and friends to come together to celebrate and show support.
They usually involve guide parents (or supporting adults) and grandparents.
You will be required to produce your child's birth certificate at the register office. You will then be given more information to allow you to personalise your naming ceremony.
The ceremonies are conducted by trained and experienced celebrants.
When available, there is a non-refundable provisional ceremony booking fee of £42.
