The arrival of a new baby is a wonderful event and many hours are spent deciding on a suitable name. You want to mark the occasion in a unique, personalised way that will be meaningful and memorable. A Baby Naming Ceremony is now a popular alternative to a christening.
You can have a naming ceremony
* shortly after your child is born
* a few months later when you have adapted to your new family life
* on your baby’s first birthday
* when your child is a little older so that s/he can join in the ceremony
You can involve grandparents and other important family members and friends in the naming ceremony and have mentors/guide parents/supportive adults instead of godparents.
The ceremony can include readings, poems, music, spiritual content, planting a tree or rose bush, the baby’s story so far, vows and promises, the meaning of the baby’s name and why it was chosen. Other children can be involved, perhaps by blowing a wish into a bubble. The ceremony can take place in any venue of your choice – indoors, outdoors or even in your back garden.
It is your ceremony – the way you want it.
Together we will create your vision of a ceremony which welcomes the newest addition into your family circle. When you are happy with the final draft, I will create your keepsake copy.
I will lead the ceremony on the day so that you can relax and enjoy it.

When a couple adopt a child, they make a legal commitment to raise the child as their own. An Adoption Ceremony welcomes the new baby/child and celebrates his/her official status as a member of the family. It is also an opportunity for the family to come together to celebrate the parents’ long-awaited, new role and for everyone to rejoice in their love for the child.
I will work with you to create the heartfelt ceremony that you want. Guidance and suggestions may be offered but all the choices and decisions are yours. Mini ceremonies can be included if you want. I will revise the script until you are happy with it and then I will create your keepsake copy.
I will lead the ceremony so that you can relax and focus on your child and yourselves.
