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.
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 14 years, I have been honoured to be invited to continue sharing in a couple's joy by officiating at their child's naming and welcome to our world, which is so very special and rewarding.
