I have performed namings for children from birth through to adults and offer a range of ceremonies to choose from which includes 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 gift that 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 a wedding celebration 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 I've recently become a Grandmother for the very first time so it's lovely 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 are only limited by your imagination for your child's celebrations. As a celebrant for over 15 years, it's pretty special 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!
