Namings


 
 
When a new baby is born it is the perfect time to have a celebration, welcoming your child into the world and sharing the delight and happiness felt with this new member of the family.

In the past most people had their children Christened but many today do not feel comfortable with a church service. A naming ceremony is therefore a perfect chance to celebrate your baby’s arrival with friends and family.
 
As a Mother, I understand how busy and tiring the first months can be. I will do my best to fit in with your needs and short moments of freedom and help you put together a unique and beautiful ceremony for your baby.
 
I have a large selection or readings and poems to inspire you. Some people wish for a simple naming ceremony, others wish for the addition of vows and promises made by parents and supporting adults. It is your ceremony and you may choose whatever you wish. There are also many traditional customs and additional elements to the ceremony which provide a lovely way of involving all the family especially older siblings and grandparents.

I will use all my professional skills and resources so that together we create a unique and beautiful ceremony for this happy and memorable event.

Many naming ceremonies take place when the baby is a few months old but I am always very happy to create a bespoke service for older children and their whole families.
