What happens during the ceremony?
A ceremony usually lasts for around 30 minutes, but can be tailored to be as simple or as complex as you wish.
A typical naming ceremony includes:
- introduction and welcome
- readings or poems
- naming of the child
- parents’ promises to their child
- supporting adults’ promises to the child
- signing of the commemorative certificate
- closing words
At the end of the ceremony you will also receive a unique commemorative certificate. You can buy additional commemorative certificates to present to your supporting adults; these can be pre-ordered at a cost of £10 per certificate.
