Baby Blessing / Naming Ceremony

The love of a child

Many parents in our modern world are choosing to have a blessing/naming ceremony for the baby/child, rather than a religious christening or baptism, allowing their child to choose their own beliefs and values when they are older.

The aim of the blessing/naming ceremony is to welcome a child into a community of family and friends; to name, to bless and to celebrate this little Being !

It is a tradition for the parents to select mentors or guardians who they know will take a vested interest, and guide the child as they grow into adulthood.

This ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to include the participation of family members and friends, through readings, poems and verses, especially chosen for the occasion.  Candle-lighting ceremonies, tree-planting, finger-print trees and other precious moments can also be included.  There can be plenty of opportunities for creativity to be included into these ceremonies, and I am happy to offer suggestions.

Please feel free to contact me for further information and fees.

We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.
