I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed my son’s naming day. It was a really lovely, moving ceremony and all of our guests thought it was one of the best ‘christening’ they had ever attended. I think a few of them will be getting in contact to find out more for their little ones!! – Claire North

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to our celebrant for the ceremony! The naming ceremony was perfect & personal to me, Eli & my friends & family! Just perfect! The ceremony words were lovely & would highly recommend Civil Ceremonies & a naming ceremony to friends & family. Jill Little.

It was a beautiful service, our celebrant was brilliant and the script was everything that I wanted it to be. I am so happy with how everything went and so were all the guests, most had never been to a naming ceremony or even heard of it. Many thanks again and I will definitely recommend you to friends. Hazel Corrigan.

I would just like to say that we had a fantastic day on Saturday for our son’s Naming Ceremony. Considering we hadn’t met the celebrant before, my partner and I were very happy with how superbly she conducted the ceremony. We’ve had so much positive feedback from all our friends and family so thank you to Civil Ceremonies for helping us to organise the perfect way to celebrate our very special son. Sarah Broadbent.

I just wanted to say thank you for Paloma’s naming ceremony. It was really lovely – I am so pleased we did it. The day seemed to just whizz by. We all had a lovely time and the ceremony was just what we wanted. Thank you. Dawn, Brett & Paloma (Naming Ceremony)

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you for everything with regards to our naming ceremony. It was perfect, we had many guests saying how it was actually nicer than some christenings they’d been too. Our celebrant was wonderful, she looked the part and delivered the ceremony beautifully! We really all did have a wonderful day. Jo, Jon & Jessica (Naming Ceremony)

I’m still on cloud nine from yesterday’s ceremony, I just had to let you know how we feel about it. Our celebrant is a REALLY lovely lady & conducted the ceremony beautifully. I had a little hiccup at the start as I was so overwhelmed & emotional but she put me at ease & gave me a great deal of support. I feel she was a friend yesterday, not just a celebrant. The whole ceremony was stunning & really set the scene for the rest of our evening & I wanted to thank you all on behalf of my family for everything Civil Ceremonies has done for us to make our day as spectacular as it was. I’m still floating today & still getting feedback from friends & family about how magical the ceremony was. Thanks again. We’ll never forget our girls’ day. Kate Woolly & Family (Naming Ceremony)

On behalf of Neave, Emma and myself I would like to thank you and your company for a wonderful, memorable day. The celebrant was excellent and the readings that were chosen suited the day perfectly. Cheers! – Ben Grourke (Naming Ceremony)

I would like to pass on my sincerest thanks to our celebrant and everyone at Civil Ceremonies Ltd. She did a beautiful ceremony for us. Everyone who attended said how lovely the ceremony was. Even people who were sceptical at first said they now understood the meaning of the ceremony. The ceremonies hold special meaning to me and my husband….. To have a ceremony to welcome our son into our family was very important. Having conducted a ceremony for us before, our celebrant understood our relaxed style and delivered an outstanding ceremony and I of course will be recommending yourselves to anyone I know contemplating a naming day. K & D Arkell

Just wanted to write and let you know that we had an amazing day yesterday. Our celebrant was absolutely fantastic and did a brilliant job; she was very professional, really put us at ease and everybody commented on how lovely the service was… Anita, Jon and Amélie

I just wanted to let you know that the naming ceremony was wonderful! The words for the ceremony were lovely and really relevant to us as parents and the special people we chose to be supportive adults. I must be honest my Mum was very sceptical about it but said she thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was far nicer and personal than any christening she’d been to. Thank you so much it’s been a wonderful experience. Nicky, Billy, Sophie & Charlie

I’d love to send our celebrant a thankyou card! Saturday was perfect so beautiful. Even the pro traditional christening people at the start have had their minds changed. Thank you, so glad we chose to go the naming ceremony route! – Rebecca, Chris & Darcie Howarth

Our celebrant delivered the ceremony in a professional but friendly manner. She put us at ease and had a tone which was captivating. Everyone commented on her, full of praise and enquired on where we had booked her. We could not recommend her and Civil Ceremonies enough. Every contact I had with Civil Ceremonies was a pleasure – Claire Blakeman

Willow’s naming ceremony went along so well. Joe (celebrant) did the most amazing job, very professional. Everyone at the party said they hadn’t expected it to be so emotional and heartfelt. I have passed on the company’s name to many people that attended. Thank you. – Roseanna McKinnon
