A naming ceremony is a way of celebrating your child's birth.
You still must register your child's birth.
Ceremonies can be held at Bristol Register Office or most of the venues approved for marriage or civil partnership ceremonies.
At a naming ceremony you'll get a souvenir record of the ceremony. This is signed by parents, supporting adults and the person performing the ceremony.
