Naming Ceremony

This is a unique ceremony that is a specially created to welcome a new baby into the world. It can easily be adapted for multiple and/or older children . A naming ceremony can take place wherever you choose and it is a wonderful time to celebrate with family and friends.

The Ceremony

My role is to create a personalised ceremony that can be incorporated with your own ideas to make this a special day to remember.

A naming ceremony is not like a traditional christening but it may, if you wish, include elements that are religious, cultural or with symbolic aspects that are important for you.

You may wish to include close friends or family members as mentors or guide parents. Their personalised pledges or promises read during the ceremony are a lovely way to acknowledge how they will support and guide your child throughout their life.

There are many different aspects which could be included. For example:

  • Favourite poems
  • songs
  • nursery rhymes
  • bubbles
  • flowers
  • water
  • a wish tree
  • a time capsule

Please get in touch if you would like more information on how I can help you create and officiate your baby’s naming ceremony.
