NAMING CEREMONIES

What more significant event could there be than welcoming a new life into this world. Such a wonderful event deserves to be recognized and celebrated. A special way to do this is through a naming ceremony. This ceremony brings family and friends together to formally name your child, to welcome them to the wider family, to share stories, make blessings and to pledge support for their future. Naming ceremonies can be fun, moving and tender. They are a moment to publicly recognize and thank people who inspire and support your parenting.

LIFE CELEBRATIONS

Significant milestones that deserve to be marked with a ceremony and celebration include anniversaries, graduations, name changes, coming of age and other special birthdays.
Ceremonies demonstrate the meaning and the importance of the life event, honour the people involved, allow acknowledgment of the past and expression of hopes for the future. Whatever the life event you would like to recognise, my promise to you is to create a meaningful, inspiring ceremony, involving friends and family, with plenty of warmth and humour thrown in.
