Naming Ceremony.

You are bringing a new child into your family, what is not to celebrate?  A Naming ceremony is a beautiful way to introduce a child  to family and friends. It is a secular alternative to a religious ceremony, however it doesn't preclude an individual  from a religious ceremony should they choose to do so later.

A naming ceremony is a wonderful occasion, full of life, laughter and fun.  I will write a ceremony for you from scratch, one which will celebrate the joy of new life, tell the story of your family, introduce your child to the world.

During a naming ceremony, you can nominate life guides to act as guardians for your child. This role is similar to that of a God Parent. The ceremony is often informal although I can do formal if you so wish, and the inclusion of family and friends within the ceremony is a lovely way to show them and your child that they are a valued part of your child's life.
