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 and I 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 16 years, to continue share in a previous couples' joy by officiating their child's naming or meeting for the baby's naming ceremony and then being asked to officiate their marriage as is the case in the photos below - either way, it's pretty darned special!
