Naming Ceremonies

naming ceremoniesA naming ceremony is offered as an alternative to the traditional Baptism or Christening.

A naming ceremony is a very popular and beautiful way in which a child can be welcomed into your community of family and friends.  A namegiving ceremony celebrates the birth of a baby or welcomes adopted or step children.

In this ceremony parents can publicly share their hopes and dreams for their child.  Often this ceremony involves special people in the child’s family such as grandparents and siblings who take part in the ceremony by reading poems and affirmations.

You may choose to have your name giving ceremony at any time, and the ceremony itself can be as short or as lengthy as you desire.  I have lots of poems and readings for you to choose from to express the love you feel for your special child, or you may like to write something yourself.  I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to create a ceremony that is memorable for everyone to share and enjoy.

My fee for this service is $395. A deposit of $100 confirms the date of the ceremony, with the balance payable on the day.  Payment can be made by cash or cheque.
