Naming ceremonies have been around for centuries to celebrate the birth of a child and welcome them into the family and wider community. A naming ceremony is often a non-religious alternative to a christening and is a lovely way to gather your family together and welcome your child.
Your Baby’s Official Welcome
For many couples, as well as formally bestowing a name on their child, a baby naming ceremony is a way of introducing the child to their family and friends. It is the celebration that officially welcomes their child into the world and into the loving community that will help and support the child through life’s challenges.
Personalised Baby Naming Ceremonies
You can choose to have a traditional Baby Naming Ceremony Brisbane with a chance for loved ones to speak – this is typically done by those who you have asked to play a role in your new child’s life. In contrast, you may wish to throw convention out the window and create your own baby naming ceremony. Can you picture a relaxed ceremony at own home or in a tranquil park or garden? It can be a reality! I’d be delighted to help by performing a non-religious ceremony to officially welcome your new bundle of joy.
I understand that this is a special occasion, not only for your child but also for your whole family. My baby-naming ceremonies are usually non-religious. However, I can still tailor them to suit various cultural traditions and personal beliefs to make sure your individual needs are met.
An unforgettable Baby Naming Ceremony
Each child naming celebration is unique because every family wants to commemorate the day in their own way. Surround your child with love and warmth and let them know how special they are to you by having a personalised and joyful celebration. If you’d like to nominate godparents or mentors, the baby naming ceremony provides the ideal time to offer blessings or promises for your child.
You may wish to add special touches to your naming day ceremony. Lighting of candles, signature books, water blessings and of course a delicious cake are all popular options.
I provide a commemorative certificate for your child as a keepsake of their Naming Day. Also, I give certificates to each of the godparents or mentors.
