Naming Ceremonies

Openly welcome your child and affirm your commitment to them in a way that is appropriate and personal to you

Why choose a Naming Ceremony?

Many parents feel that they want to celebrate and share their joy of having a child with family and friends but do not feel that they want a traditional christening. This may be because they do not hold any religious beliefs themselves or because they want their child to be able to choose their own beliefs when they are older. It also may be that parents are from different religious backgrounds.

A Naming Ceremony offers you the opportunity to openly welcome your child and affirm your commitment to them in a way that is appropriate and personal to you. As each family is different, the naming ceremony should be individually tailored to suit your own particular circumstances. This opportunity is also a unique time to acknowledge the special role of grandparents and other family members.

If you have older children, you may like to include them in the ceremony as well. They may like to read a poem, or say a few words to welcome their younger brother or sister.

We had a lovely naming day for our two children, it was perfect and just what we wanted it to be. Thank you again for making it possible for David to do his part of the ceremony. He is out of hospital now and still recovering, but is doing well. We would recommend your services to anyone, and will defiantly be using you in the future if need’s be. Thanks again.

Hi Lexie, Matt and I would like to thank you once again for presenting such an amazing naming ceremony for Chelsea. Everyone present commented on how perfect the day was. Having Chelsea’s grandparents and godparents each hand her a flower was a beautiful touch. We look forward to contacting you again in the future for number #3

Hi Lexie. Just a quick email to thank you for your service at Kaden’s naming day. Our families loved the lighting of the candle’s for the Past Family Members, and Kaden’s Ribbon Wishing Ceremony with all the colours, and the meaning ‘s behind them. We were all very impressed. I am wondering if it is possible to get another copy of the ceremony and certificate please? Thank you again.

Hello Lexie – What a fantastic day, just beautiful! Just had to contact you to say thank you. You were so well organised and the ceremony was beautiful done. All the way through Lara and I loved your friendly approach and profession manner . You gave us so many options with poems and different reading you made our input into the ceremony fun and easy. We loved the day and feel that had it not been for your input and advice the day would not have been the success it was. We really could not have been happier. Thank you again.

What does a Humanist Naming Ceremony provide?

a unique opportunity to celebrate your child’s life and welcome them into your family and their wider community. Just by holding a naming ceremony, you are expressing that your child is a very important member of your family unit.
It is an opportunity for you to state in front of your family and friends the unconditional
love and care, support and encouragement that you will provide as a parent.

A Naming Ceremony is also ideal for older children, if you are adopting or would like to embrace stepchildren into your new family.

Commitment Ceremonies

Same sex commitment ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples

What is involved in a Commitment Ceremony?

There are no hard-and-fast customs that everyone believes you MUST adhere to (well, apart from the ring and the always-important kiss after the declaration). As a result, you can do whatever is authentic to you as a couple.

Together we can create a unique ceremony, ensuring that the words, readings and symbols reflect what you and your partner most value.

Let me help you design the ceremony that will express who you are – and what you want to say.

It is a sad reality that many lesbians and gay men do not have the acceptance and support of their families, because those families find it hard to accept their sexual orientation. Where a same sex couple have decided to commit to each other for life, a commitment ceremony can be a healing as well as a joyous occasion.

While a commitment ceremony has no legal standing, it is a ceremony that makes public your love for each other, and your commitment to your relationship.

A commitment ceremony allows you, as a couple, to make yourself heard, to tell your truth and your intentions. It allows you to celebrate something that is really important to you, your wonderful, loving and fulfilling relationship, and it gathers your community together, giving them an opportunity to reflect on your words in a formal setting, and to enjoy and support your relationship.

I AM A GAY-POSITIVE AUTHORISED AND ACCREDITED CIVIL MARRIAGE, NAMING AND GENERAL CELEBRANT.

I specialize and delight in providing custom-created same sex commitment ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples, which celebrate their love, reflect who they are, and honor their relationship.
