Naming Ceremony

Naming a child is a family celebration and reflects a milestone in that family.
I will create a ceremony that recognises this special occasion to welcome with best wishes and blessing a child into your family .There are many possibilities for your naming ceremony , such as including the meaning of your child’s name, a reading of a poem by a friend or family member.
A significant part of the ceremony is the inclusion of specially chosen people to become guardians or godparents of the child, vowing to offer their support , friendship and guidance though out their lives.
