Becoming a parent is exciting but it can be a little overwhelming, too. I can help you celebrate this exciting time in your lives and welcome your new arrival into your family by holding a special and personal baby naming ceremony.
I am an independent Celebrant who can commemorate your most important life moments the way you would want to by ensuring that the ceremony is tailored specifically to you. I can perform the baby naming ceremony wherever you like; on a beach, the woods, your garden or anywhere else that has a special meaning to you.
You can include symbolic and traditional rituals into your celebration such as a sand ceremony or tree planting, both of which are a lovely alternative to a more formal and religious christening. A ceremony can be held for any child being welcomed into your family, be it your own, an adopted child or even to acknowledge new siblings coming together as part of a blended family.
Together we will create joyous, meaningful memories for you and your baby as well as the other members of your family.
What is Involved?
Once you have decided on a venue we will discuss your plans and ideas in a consultation
I will ask you to complete a questionnaire understand important details about you, your family and the baby as well as your parenthood journey so far.
We can discuss how you can personalise your baby naming ceremony. Some examples include sand ceremonies, a tree planting or creating a time capsule
I will work with you to involve your family and other siblings in the ceremony
We then work on vows and readings you might like to use during the ceremony
You may want to incorporate family traditions into the ceremony, or indeed create a new one that can be passed down through future generations
You might want to assign supporting adults/mentors/life guides or guard parents
Once we have reviewed all the details a booking fee secures the date and the writing of your personal script begins!
I will ensure all is just as you wish it during this special day
