Naming Ceremonies

Celebrating the Birth of your Child

The birth of your child is a cause for special celebration.

If you are part of a growing population of parents who want to celebrate the birth of your child without a christening, alternatives such as a Naming Ceremony are becoming very popular. Naming ceremonies are non-religious or secular ceremonies.  It’s entirely up to you as to how you would like the ceremony to be organised.  It can take place at your home or at a venue that you choose. Madeleine will assist with the structure of the ceremony, helping you choose content and arranging who will deliver it. You can lead parts of the ceremony yourself, or you can hand over completely to Madeleine.

Madeleine is a professionally trained civil celebrant who can help you plan the kind of ceremony that encompasses your choices. She will work with you to achieve an occasion that reflects your ethics and beliefs in a unique way to honour your child’s presence in your life and what that means to you.

You can have a ceremony that is as formal or as informal as you prefer, taking into account your wishes for the involvement of friends and family.
