Welcoming a child into your lives is a memorable and incredibly special experience.
Naming ceremonies are a beautiful alternative to a religious ceremony, for families who want to celebrate the beginning of their child's life and welcome them into the world.
A naming ceremony does not carry any legal status, but it provides an informal setting for family and friends to celebrate the arrival of the baby. It gives you the chance to welcome your child into the family and affirm your love and commitment to them, surrounded by the most important people in their life.
As your Naming Ceremony celebrant, I can help you plan your ceremony to include other family members, friends, godparents or guardians and I can provide you with examples of special rituals or symbols that can be incorporated into the ceremony. Together, we can plan a ceremony just for you – it can be lighthearted and fun or more traditional.
As with every ceremony, I strive to make the day as personal and unique for you as possible. I will work with you to incorporate details that are significant to you to make the day truly memorable. Timing is crucial to ensure the baby is happy (and awake) so I plan with you to arrange a time that is suitable and maintain flexibility on the day to work around changes in schedules.
Please feel free to contact me (I am based in Adelaide) and arrange a meeting where we can discuss what I can do to help you celebrate this momentous occasion.
