Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a wonderful celebration to express the joy of the birth of your child. A personal ceremony to introduce your child to the community at large is the perfect opportunity to officially welcome your child into the loving circle of family and friends.

This ceremony is used when parents do not feel the need for a religious ritual. A naming isn’t just for your newborn it can be performed at any age. I have done naming ceremonies for all the children in one family and it is a wonderful joyous occasion. I will supply certificates for you to commemorate your child’s naming day. Please feel free to contact me for further information.


Commitment Ceremonies

Same sex couples, religious differences or not needing to marry – couples have a myriad of reasons to have a commitment. For many different reasons some people do not want to marry or feel the need to marry but they wish to publicly declare their love for one another in front of family and friends. A commitment ceremony offers that bonding and celebration of love. For me a commitment ceremony carries the same special meaning as a wedding so I devote the same time into writing your ceremony, your way.


Renewal of vows

A renewal of vows is a touching, romantic way to celebrate your special anniversary with a wonderful, loving and relaxed renewal of vows ceremony. It can be a time to reflect on the years gone by and to acknowledge once again your commitment to each other, a time to celebrate with your children and grandchild. What a beautiful example to reaffirm your vows and to publicly show your love and devotion to each other in front of those most important to you. I can write a completely new ceremony or we can incorporate the wording from your original wedding service.
