Naming Ceremonies

Joyful & Memorable

The traditional way to welcome a new baby is a Christening, but this isn't always inclusive & we're here to break with tradition

Having a naming ceremony means you can welcome your little one to the family, but don't need the religious part & you don't need all the other stuff you don't know the meaning of.  It can include symbolic rituals or in fact not have any at all.

It's truly your day, your way

A naming ceremony also means you can celebrate new members to the family, such as an adopted child or step children.

 

It's also wonderful if you have changed your name and you are ready to celebrate & shout about because it looks good on you!

Not to mention, it's also great for various cultures to mesh together their traditions to create a brand new tradition which is unique to your family
