Becoming a parent is exciting, but it can be a little overwhelming too. I can help you celebrate this exciting time of 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 like sand ceremony, tree planting which is 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 discuss your plans and ideas in a consultation
I will ask you to complete a questionnaire to put together 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 with a sand ceremony or a tree planting or you can create a time capsule
I will work with you to involve your family and other siblings in the ceremony
We 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 want it during this special day
