Child Naming

Congratulations!

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
