naming ceremonies

Together we can create a naming ceremony that is the perfect way to not only celebrate the birth of your child but to welcome them into your family and community. It will be an opportunity to share your joy and to have a personalised ceremony to fit with the belief structure you choose.

Some parents select readings, poems or songs to celebrate, some choose to include a ritual or blessing in their ceremony, some acknowledge the significance of the name chosen for their child. Like in a religious christening, some parents choose to invite godparents or mentors to act as significant adults in their child’s life.

A naming ceremony also offers an opportunity for parents, grandparents, family or friends to pledge their commitment and their love to the child.

A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate all that your new child is to you and to honour this with those you love.
