Apart from weddings, one of life's celebrated rituals is that of the giving of a name to a child. Today many families choose not to Christen or Baptise their child in a church but like to have a less formal ceremony either at home or some other significant spot.
As an experienced Marriage Celebrant, I have chosen to include naming ceremonies as one of the "Life Celebrations" that I conduct. I adore babies and children and I am delighted to be involved in such significant events in their lives.
A Naming ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to get together with close family and friends and celebrate a new child in our lives. The ceremony can be as formal or informal as you wish - there is no right or wrong way to do it. You may or may not decide to include religious aspects to the ceremony. You can involve other siblings in many ways, for example a sand ceremony, lighting of a candle, release of balloons, blowing of bubbles, reading special poems - the list goes on and is only limited by our imagination.
You may chose to have God Parents or Guardian Angels for your child, I will tailor a ceremony to include everyone you wish to be involved.
I will provide you with certificates to present to God Parents and Guardians as well as a keepsake certificate for you as parents.
Please contact me to discuss your ceremony.
