Naming Ceremonies

​The birth of a child is such a special time and what better way to celebrate the arrival with family and friends than with a naming ceremony? 

Most naming ceremonies involve parents making some kind of commitment or promise to their child, you may want to read a poem, a reading, or special song, but if that’s too much for you, I can do this on your behalf.

You may wish to use the ceremony to nominate guide parents or responsible adults who will play an active part in your child's life as they grow up. 

Naming ceremonies can follow after your child has been legally named with your local registrar or as they reach a milestone birthday. 

Adoption  Ceremonies

Adoption is a conscious and intentional choice, often one that is a lengthy and sometimes difficult process.

An adoption ceremony is a celebration of a child or children joining a family.  A place to share what a child brings to a family, a chance for new memories to be made together. And a place to accept the challenges of the past and share hopes and dreams of the future.

This journey should be recognised, and a Adoption Welcoming ceremony offers a powerful way to say we are all here together.
