Welcoming Ceremony

Welcoming Ceremonies

Welcoming ceremonies are a very special way of celebrating the birth of your child or the new arrival of an adopted child into your wider circle of family and friends.

These ceremonies are not just for babies, children of any age can have a ceremony and you may wish to include your other children as well as your new child. You may have two families that have joined as one and wish to cerebrate by holding a special ceremony.

Welcoming ceremonies are not religious and have no legal status. Any parent can arrange a welcoming ceremony; you do not have to be married.
You may also like to extend the ceremony by adding a reception, see our Packages page for more information.

Format of the welcoming ceremony

• Introduction and welcome by the celebrant
• Readings / poems (optional)
• Naming the child

• Promises by supporting adults and or grandparents

Details of the ceremony

• A souvenir certificate is issued after the ceremony also available for grandparents and supporting adults at an extra cost.
