Naming Ceremony - £250
Whether you've had a baby, adopted a child or have become a step parent a Naming Ceremony is such a special ceremony.
Joining together with family and friends to welcome and make lifelong promises to your child is a moment to treasure. Many people love the idea of a Christening but are not comfortable with the religious aspect, making promises to God. The best naming ceremonies combine the aspects you associate with a Christening - appointing those close to you to make promises to your child - Godparents without the God, plus the celebration! It's your ceremony and I will build a ceremony that fits you and your child.
From the first conversation I will listen to your hopes and desires. A Naming Ceremony can be held anywhere, at anytime and include anything you wish so we can discuss options or you can tell me your plans!
I will welcome your guests
I will reflect on the impact having your child has had on you
I can incorporate music, readings and poems or symbolic actions - candle lighting, sand ceremony - the choice is endless.
Promises - if you want to make promises to your child or if you have key adults pledging their support for them, I can write their promises
