A Naming Ceremony is a very special way of welcoming a new child in the family and I can help you create this with an appropriate sense of occasion. These are a lovely alternative to a more formal and religious christening
It is a unique event that allows everyone to feel involved as they pledge their love and support for your child’s future development and can be one of the earliest opportunities to welcome a new baby into the circle of family and friends. It can also be the perfect opportunity to welcome adoptive or step-children into a family.
It is an occasion to declare your promises to be as good a parent as you can, and for adult friends or relatives to confirm their special relationship with your child.
Your Naming Ceremony can be specially created using your own selection of words, poems and readings, either from the wide selection I can provide or from other sources and can be as formal or informal as you wish. The location might be your home or garden, a village hall, a hotel function room or a place special to your family.
Ceremonies can be combined with symbolic actions that have meaning to the family, such as sand ceremonies, tree-planting, candle-lighting, or hand or foot-printing.
Once you have chosen your venue or setting, just drop me a line and I can hold your date and start chatting about your plans and ideas.
