Baby Naming

What better way to introduce your friends and loved ones to the newest member of your family is there than a Baby Naming or blessing?

A Naming Ceremony simply offers you the opportunity to officially celebrate the naming  of your child, and give significance to the name you have chosen for them. The Naming Ceremony allows you, as a parent or parents, to declare your life long commitment to your child or children. You can also involve your Family & Friends by getting them to confirm their role in the child’s upbringing, and commit to the promise to nurture and guide the child as they journey through life.

So, whether brought together through birthadoption, or marriage, a Naming Ceremony offers a personalised & memorable opportunity to welcome a child or children into your world. It is simply a ceremony designed to announce your status as a family.

What’s involved?

It’s really easy. We get together a few weeks before the date fo the ceremony, to discuss your ideas & plans for the ceremony and begin creating your ceremony script.

I will guide you through the ceremony writing process, and you will have the option to include poemsreadings and music that you want.

Why not include friends and family in your ceremony, by appointing your child with their chosen ‘Godparents’ or ‘Guideparents’ and asking them to make a vow of commitment to their role in your child’s upbringing?

Why not include a symbolic ceremony using items such as water, candles, memory boxes, and gemstones – or any other symbolic element which is meaningful to you. Let’s chat about this OK? I’m always open to new ideas.
