Naming Days

Let’s celebrate! A new addition to the family is such a gift that it deserves it’s own celebration. Whatever beliefs you have and style you want, all go into creating your very own Naming Day Ceremony.  More and more parents are choosing this type of ceremony to introduce their child into the world and their community. As many families do not subscribe to a formal religion but want to share the joy of their child with family and friends, having a Naming Day is the answer. It’s a ceremony created entirely for you and yours and so is a completely unique experience for you and all your guests.

Together we discuss what you really want from this ceremony.
Who you are, what you want for you and your baby, where it will take place, remembering we are not confined to any particular building or space ( how exciting). When you would like the ceremony and why you feel you want to share this day with family and friends. In other words we make it a complete expression of you, your values and your love for your baby. What a joy. All the love of a wedding without all the expense and stress!

We can incorporate into the ceremony whatever and whoever is most important to you and in your child’s life. Guardians, grand parents, friends can be involved. If you have particular interests, music or poetry, these can also be weaved into the ceremony. Anything that makes it unique and meaningful to you and yours.

When we have decided upon all the elements you would like included, I write the ceremony and send it to you for your approval. Once completely happy,  we finalise it and organise the day.
