Naming Ceremonies

Babies traditionally have always been christened according to the families faith. Godparents are selected who stand as moral guardians and ensure the child is brought up according to their faith.

These days, there are other choices. Where families don’t have any particular religious beliefs, or where they are from different religious backgrounds, they can choose a celebrant to carry out a naming ceremony for their child.

This is a beautiful ceremony and one in which ‘responsible adults’ (godparents), parents and grandparents can all make their vows to the child. Guests are also encouraged to offer their own wishes for the baby or child.

A naming ceremony can also be a lovely way of welcoming an adopted child into the family.

Your bespoke ceremony can be held anywhere – indoors or outdoors, and it is a unique service for your child or children; not for lots of other children… The service can be as traditional or as modern as you wish. Incorporate some religion or none at all. The choice is entirely yours.

Whatever you would like, discuss it with David who can design a ceremony for you including any readings you wish to have too.
