There's only one thing I love just as much as a wedding - and that's a babynaming!
I have performed namings for children from birth through to teenagers and offer a range of ceremony types which include a choice of certificates for your child & Godparents / guardians. This ceremony welcomes your child into the loving embrace of your family & friends and is a celebration of their life and the special gift they are to you. I also provide you with a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony. Namings or baby namegivings can be combined with a birthday or your wedding and are similar to a christening with or without the religious elements, the choice is yours.
Having previously worked with children in Preschool & Year 1, I love interacting with the little people who share our world and having become a Grandmother, it's such a special time to celebrate the joy babies bring to everyone. Naming ceremonies can include a tree planting, wishing stones, time capsule / treasure chest, money tree, candle lighting, a butterfly release or showering your little bundle of joy with petals. You're only limited by your imagination for your child's celebrations. As a celebrant for over 15 years, to be invited to continue sharing in a couple's joy following their wedding by officiating their child's naming or meeting for the baby's naming ceremony and then being asked to officiate the parents marriage - either way, it's pretty darned special!
