Celebratory ceremonies

These can take place at Spring Hall ceremony suite or any Calderdale venue that has public liability and fire insurance.

Due to their personal nature, it is not fitting to hold them in an area open to the public. For details of the cost, please see: Fees .


Naming ceremonies

This is a special way to celebrate your child's birth and welcomes them into the family and the wider community. It is also ideally suited to welcome and celebrate an adoptive child, or to embrace stepchildren into a new family.

Families can choose guiding adults to pledge a unique relationship with the child. They can make their own promises to be as good a parent as possible. Grandparents and other special friends and relatives can also take part. The ceremony can be personalised with poems and readings.

The celebrant provided by the Council will be experienced in the delivery of these ceremonies.

Renewal of vows ceremonies

These ceremonies are for people who are already legally married, or in a civil partnership with each other.

They are an ideal way to celebrate a special anniversary. They can also be used to re-affirm a couple’s bond if they have gone through a difficult period together. They are also appropriate if the first ceremony was very small, or took place abroad. The couple may now want to celebrate with a wider circle of friends.

Ceremonies can include special poems and readings to make them more personal. There is also the option to re-dedicate wedding rings or to give new ones.

The celebrant provided by the Council will be someone already experienced in the delivery of personalised and meaningful ceremonies.
