Celebrant Naming Ceremonies

Celebrating a new life

line

A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate the birth of a new baby or to welcome an adopted child or stepchildren into your family and your wider community. Many families are now choosing to hold a naming ceremony to celebrate the child’s arrival, rather than the more traditional options that are rooted in faith-based events. Also remember, that there are no age limits so older children can also be included in the ceremony.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate new life, or to formally welcome a new child into the family and to reflect the role they each will play in the life of your child, with specially selected ones undertaking the role of ‘Guide Parent’ or ‘Supporting Adult’ where they make promises to your child. You may wish to incorporate various symbolic or cultural elements to the ceremony, which are perhaps unique and specific to your family or heritage.

Engaging Children and Young People

line

Having worked with children for over twenty years, I understand their uniqueness, their special qualities and personalities which should rightly be celebrated and that if they are of an appropriate age, they take an active and involved part in the ceremony. Engaging children and young people is so important, as to empower them and allow them to feel some control, builds young people who take responsibility for their actions and enables them to develop communication skills, as well as skills in compromise and negotiation.Naming ceremonies can also be a great way for family and friends to take part in a ceremony for an adult who has received their gender recognition certificate after transitioning.

Whoever you are considering a Naming Ceremony for, please feel free to contact me to discuss any specific requirements that you may have.
