A naming ceremony is a great way to welcome your child into your family, and celebrate with your friends and family.
You’ll announce the names you’ve chosen.
You’ll make promises of commitment to your child, and you can choose friends or relatives to take part in the ceremony as ‘supporting adults’, who will also pledge a special relationship to your child. You can ask grandparents to take part too.
One of our celebrants will conduct your ceremony. They are trained and do a fantastic job, but they don’t act in a legal capacity - naming ceremonies aren’t legal ceremonies.
You can have your ceremony at Warrington Register Office, at one of our approved venues, or at another venue of your choice – but you’ll need to ask our Superintendent Registrar for approval, so that they can make sure the venue is suitable.
You’ll have to pay a non-refundable reservation fee to reserve your date, time and venue.
The reservation fee is £40.

Naming ceremonies at any other approved venue:
If you decide to have your ceremony somewhere other than the Register Office, you may have to pay room hire fees and other costs to that venue.
