Booking a Naming Ceremony
Ceremonies with a Celebrant
Most people elect to have their ceremony conducted by one of our Celebrants. All of our Celebrants are specially trained professionals. Your Celebrant’s primary goal is to ensure that your ceremony runs smoothly and that you have a truly memorable day.
Once you have provisionally arranged somewhere to hold your ceremony, you can check Celebrant availability with us by clicking the ‘Enquire Here’ button to the right or by calling us.
We check our database for Celebrants within 20 miles of your venue address so that your celebrant is local. We then check the date you would like is free in their diary. Celebrants normally get back to us within 48 hours and we then call or email you with the outcome.
Sophie is one of our experienced Celebrants and she says of her work:
“Naming Ceremonies are such wonderful occasions. That moment when a parent looks into their child’s eyes and speaks aloud the promises they have personally chosen to make to them is special and moving beyond comparison. And it’s a genuine privilege to be a part of that.”
Once availability has been confirmed with you, you can either pay your ceremony deposit over the phone or online with a link we will send you. Please see fees page for payment information.
Standard or Classic Ceremonies
Once you have booked your Standard or Classic Naming Ceremony we will send you the name of the Celebrant that will be conducting it for you by email. They will then be in touch with you to introduce themselves and to arrange a pre-meet at the venue or home. (Pre-meets do not take place for Standard Ceremonies at a venue.)
We also send you a link to our online ceremony system which is called ourceremony.co.uk where you will be able to log in and make your choices. Once you have submitted your ceremony content, we will check the script is exactly as you want it to be and then email it to your celebrant who will bring it to deliver on the day along with a certificate.
Once you have booked your Bespoke Naming Ceremony we will email you the name of the Celebrant that will be conducting your ceremony. They will then be in touch with you to introduce themselves and to arrange a pre-meet at your venue or home.
We will post our comprehensive ceremony pack to you for you to make your choices from, and return the forms to us.
We then manually create your script and email a draft copy for you to check through. Once this has been finalized, we send you a copy with the order of ceremony and we also send it to the celebrant with your certificate. The celebrant will then arrive on the day ready to deliver the ceremony.
Please see our script only page for further information on booking.
