Baby Naming

A baby naming ceremony to welcome a new baby or child into your life is an amazing experience. There are any number of rituals or celebrations you may like to do to celebrate and honour such an event. A baby naming is the most the common celebration. A naming ceremony can also be done at any age.

A baby naming ceremony allows you to acknowledge how important this child is to you, your family and the community. Many people, not a part of a particular religion still want to commemorate the significance of their child’s arrival. We can celebrate and welcome a new child into our lives in the way we choose. A baby naming ceremony is a chance to enhance your life journey with an individually crafted ceremony that reflects you and your beliefs. It is an opportunity to bestow a name, bestow blessings and gifts and acknowledge the god parents, mentors or guides you select for the child.

I take time to know you and together we can create a beautiful, life affirming ceremony for your baby naming. Your ceremony will be a unique, personal, meaningful and beautiful reflection of you and your family, your values and personality. I listen to you and with creativity, experience and passion help you create the perfect ceremony. I also have a range of resources you can use for inspiration.

Each ceremony is individually crafted to reflect your love, your personality and your family. A beautiful Commemorative Booklet of the ceremony will be produced and given to you to keep. You will also receive a Commemorative Certificate on the day.

Officiating your ceremony is the culmination of many hours of preparation, which is included in the price. I will meet with you at least once to listen to you and learn about you and your family, to help us devise the perfect ceremony for your baby naming. We can meet at my place or yours or at a mutually convenient place, we can even meet on Skype. To create your unique and personal ceremony we will be in contact as often as needed by phone, email, skype or google hangouts.

On the day, I will be there at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to set up and check equipment. A PA system will be provided if required. I can also bring along a table, chair and cloth for signing the certificate. I am happy to wear appropriately themed clothes to fit with your ceremony.
