A baby naming ceremony is the alternative to a baptism or christening and is for those of you who would prefer to have a more relaxed, tailor made, unique celebration in a place of your choice. It will enable you to celebrate the safe arrival of your child, enlist the help of family and friends as your child’s ‘supporting adults’ (or God-parents if you prefer), make meaningful commitments and share your hopes for your child’s future. I will listen to your ideas and create and lead the ceremony wherever you would like to have it and at a time to suit you and your baby.
To make the day even more memorable I can incorporate your choice of music, songs, readings, poetry, prayers if you wish and in addition I can be as creative as you choose to be by including a butterfly release, tree planting or perhaps filling a memory box with all the good wishes of your guests. All these things together create a ceremony that reflects the importance of the new little person in your care.
If you are lucky enough to have become part of a child’s life, in whatever way, then it’s a cause for celebration. An adoption ceremony works along exactly the same lines as a baby naming ceremony, welcoming the new child into the fold of family and friends.
