To celebrate the life of a baby or older child is a particular joy for most people. Whether a newborn or a recently adopted child, a naming ceremony can be a very special event. Or you may have become a step family that is using a different name. To have a tailor made naming ceremony to celebrate a new family is both a serious and optimistic event. These ceremonies can be carried out in your own home or outside in a park or garden.

You may wish to have chosen friends to act as ‘sponsors’ or ‘guide parents’. The ceremony can include participation by all members of the family from nieces and nephews to grandparents. I can help you choose readings and help you write your script. The most important part of your event is that you choose what you want, how you want and where you want your ceremony to be.
