Naming ceremonies lament the miracle of new life! We will celebrate the happiness of family life and the beginning of a sensational new chapter in your story.
Today, many families are choosing to celebrate and welcome their new child to the family in an informal, fun and highly personalised way. Naming ceremonies are the perfect way to welcome a child of any age. Our names are an incredibly important part of our identity. Often our names are given to us before we are born. They carry deep personal, cultural, familial, and historical connections. We may be named after a family member who is no longer with us, a modern twist of a very old name, or maybe we are named after our parents favourite A-lister! Names also give us a sense of who we are, the communities in which we belong, and our place in the world. Naming ceremonies involve the important people in your child’s life. I can help you write the promises and commitments you choose to make to your child or you may have them entrenched in your mind already.
The possibilities are endless – there are no constraints! Naming ceremonies can be held indoors or outdoors and at a location of your choice. You have complete freedom to choose all the content – whatever feels just right for you and your family. The ceremony could be non-religious, religious or spiritual in nature – it will be in line with your beliefs, wishes and dreams. You could have a particular theme – Winnie the Poo, Dr. Seuss, Julia Donaldson or perhaps we will go on a Bear Hunt! You can have God-parents or guide-parents, you may want to involve your child’s grandparents or your best friends as they pledge their love and support for your child’s life now and in the future. You may want to add a symbolic gesture such as a unity candle or sand ceremony, tree planting, footprint making, a memory box or time capsule – there’s so many options! You are only limited by your imagination!
Faith based ceremonies such as Christenings or Baptisms, have scripts steeped in tradition. I will work closely with you to find the right words to pledge your love and devotion to your child and celebrate such a momentous occasion.
