Life Celebrations

Whether you are celebrating new life in your family, or commemorating the passing of a loved one, you want to feel certain that the occasion will be marked in tranquil surroundings where you can take time to reflect with your closest friends and family.

Naming Ceremony

The birth of a new baby is a wonderful reason to gather friends and family to celebrate together, welcoming new life to a family, and creating a reason to celebrate with those we love.

As well as introducing the new arrival, it’s an opportunity to recognise people who will play a special role in his or her upbringing, offering guidance and support as they grow up.

With the support of close friends and family members, it is a memorable occasion to focus on the joy of a new addition, to involve siblings, grandparents, cousins and parents.

Our attentive teams will leave you free to mingle with your guests and enjoy your special occasion in a warm and relaxed environment.

Whatever catering requirements you have, we’ll ensure the focus is completely on you enjoying an intimate day with those closest to you. We can also help plan your ceremony and advise on different options.

Our venue offers the perfect backdrop for a family occasion in Gloucestershire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, and with 7 acres of award-winning gardens, capturing your day in memorable images will be an added bonus.

For further information on naming days, contact us today and let us help you create a perfect family celebration.
