Introduction

As well as marriages and civil partnerships, we provide a range of other types of ceremonies.

Citizenship ceremonies, naming ceremonies and eternity ceremonies are wonderful markers of milestone events.

Naming ceremony

Sometimes called a ‘welcome ceremony’, we offer a ceremony to celebrate a child and recognise their place in their family. It’s a non-religious alternative to a christening ceremony, and a great opportunity for friends and family to come together and celebrate the new addition to a family – new babies, extended families with step-children, adopted families, fostered children. The ceremony can be tailored to your needs and can include music and readings.

The ceremony can be held at a register office, one of our approved premises, or a village hall.

Eternity ceremony

Sometimes called a renewal of vows, we offer a ceremony to reaffirm your marriage or civil partnership vows. This is a formal yet romantic opportunity to reflect on your marriage or civil partnership and look forward to the future in the presence of your family and friends.

The Eternity ceremony is available to any married or civil partnered couple who wish to renew their commitment in a joyful celebration. It has a format similar to a civil ceremony but with no legal status. It can be personalised and totally unique. Each ceremony lasts about 30 minutes, depending on your requirements

The ceremony can be held at a register office, one of our approved premises or a village hall.
