Welcoming a new family member is a momentous occasion and should be celebrated to reflect this!
Maybe you have just had a little bundle of joy or you wish to celebrate blending families, perhaps you have just adopted, a naming/welcoming ceremony is a beautiful way to mark this moment where everyone can be involved.
It is a brilliant opportunity to announce 'guide parents' (non-religious god parents) and together you can make your declarations of love and support for your child in front of all the most important people in your lives.
I get the wonderful task of meeting with you to find out about your family's story, hearing all about the star of the show and working closely with you to create a beautiful bespoke naming ceremony that everyone will enjoy.
The more inclusive your naming ceremony is the more fun everyone will have, especially the children!
Including special elements is a great way to allow everyone to play a role within the ceremony and many special elements also double up as fantastic keepsakes.
See the list below for some inspiration, once I get to know you and your family I can offer up plenty of other suggestions that would work well for your ceremony too!
The beauty of a celebrant led naming ceremony, besides it being a fun, inclusive ceremony written just for your family is that you have complete freedom of choice!
The ceremony can happen anywhere at anytime. Commonly a naming ceremony will take place in your home often in the garden or where you and your family feel most comfortable but it can be held wherever you wish.
Many families also like to tie the naming ceremony into another special occasion such as a 1st birthday or adoption party.

Hopefully you will find the answers to your questions below, however if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to get in contact. There is no such thing as a silly question!
“I have no words to describe how amazing the ceremony is that you've put together. Thank you so much!"
"I want to say thank you, it was a beautiful service."
