Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies

We are no longer confined by religion and many parents today feel they are not religious, even though the majority may have been christened themselves. Many no longer go to church, and feel that a Baptism or Christening would be inappropriate.

Choosing a child’s name is a very personal thing. It marks their individuality and uniqueness as a person, and of belonging in our family and the community.

A Naming or Welcoming ceremony provides the perfect alternative means to welcome new born children, step-children or adopted children into the family, whatever their ages.

The ceremonies do not have any legal status, which means you can celebrate the occasion when and wherever you like. The format of your ceremony is limited only by your imagination.

It is a celebratory occasion for families and friends, and communities to come together to make personal commitments. To uphold the well being, the dreams, the welfare, and the responsibility of shaping your children into well rounded individuals. Children who develop confidence to become self-reliant and independent, and play some worthy part in making life more pleasant for those whose paths they cross.

I will work closely with you to create and conduct a unique and meaningful ceremony. Allowing you to celebrate the way you want too, anytime, anyplace, and anywhere, making the day a truly memorable occasion.
