There's only one thing I love as much as a wedding - and that's a baby naming!
I've performed namings for children from birth through to teenagers offering a range of ceremony types including a choice of certificates for your child & Godparents / guardians. We welcome that bundle of joy into the loving embrace of your family & friends as it's a celebration of them and the special gift they are to you. I also provide you with a beautiful keepsake copy of the personalised ceremony. Namings or namegivings can be combined with a birthday or your wedding celebrations 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 one with petals. You're only limited by your imagination for your child's celebrations. As a celebrant for over 17 years, I'm so lucky to continue sharing in a family's life in officiating their child's naming and then being asked to officiate their marriage as is the case in the photos below or the other way 'round - either way, it's pretty darned special!
