As a Civil Celebrant I am pleased to conduct ceremonies that allow for the type of ceremony you are looking for. In a naming or welcoming ceremony I will work with you to create a ceremony that all family and friends can relate to. It is instinct or tradition to mark life changing events with a ceremony, the arrival of a new member of the family is indeed such a time. The naming ceremony is our opportunity to welcome a child or member of the family into our family circle, and to consider the differences and changes that the child will make to us all.
It is usual to conduct a naming ceremony in the early stages of the childs life, though their is no strict rule. We will work together to create the type of ceremony you would like, I will provide as a starting point some sample ceremonies and other reference material for you to consider and assist you in creating your ceremony. Generally the naming ceremony will follow a format that consists of an introduction and welcoming of the guests, a reading or poem, commitment by the Godparents or Guardians, the name giving, possibly another reading or poem, final declaration and presentation of the certificate.
Should any or all of the above strike a chord with you and you would like some more information or to check the availability of the date you have chosen for your ceremony, please contact me for an obligation free meeting to discuss your ceremony requirements. You may also download my Naming Ceremony fact sheet for more information.
