Naming Ceremonies

For a baby or child gives parents the opportunity to give thanks for the safe arrival of their son or daughter and introduces him or her to the family and friends. It allows parents to publicly express their love and devotion to the child.

It is a non religious ceremony which allows the child to choose their own beliefs later in life.

A Naming Ceremony lets parents choose other adults who will take a special interest in the child’s journey through life.

These people may be called Godparents, guardians or special friends.

I have a selection of readings from which to choose as well as many other symbolic and meaningful ceremonies.

These include candle lighting, to symbolize the child’s heritage; a wish box with messages to the child from guests and many more unique ideas from which to select.

Renewal of Vows

A Renewal of Vows Ceremony is a perfect way for a couple to express how they feel about their relationship now, years after their marriage ceremony.

It is popular to have this ceremony as part of a significant wedding anniversary celebration; amongst family and friends who have supported you throughout your marriage.

Your family and friends may also wish to participate in the ceremony by reading special verses or poems.  You may wish to base your vows on the words used in your original marriage ceremony, or by creating a whole new service reflecting on the pathways your lives have taken.

Couples who have been married overseas or who have had an elopement ceremony and now wish to share their love with family and friends may wish to have a renewal of vows ceremony.

A Renewal of Vows Certificate and a presentation copy of your ceremony is presented to you as a special reminder of your ceremony.

Commitment Ceremonies or Non Legal Wedding Ceremonies

A commitment ceremony provides an opportunity for couples to celebrate their love and commitment to one another in the presence of their loved ones.

The only difference to a traditional wedding ceremony is that no legal paperwork is completed.
I will offer you a beautifully created certificate on the day.
