Together we will create your perfect ceremony

A Naming Ceremony is the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of a baby, child or young person into your family, be that through birth or adoption or the blending of two families together.

 

It is an alternative to a christening and is a chance to bring family and friends together to share and celebrate with you.

 

A naming ceremony can allow you and chosen members of your family to make promises and commitments to the individual that will last a life time. This can be particularly meaningful for grandparents and older siblings. 

Symbolic actions can be woven into the ceremony. These can include the lighting of candles, a sand ceremony or, if the ceremony were to take place in your garden, the planting of a tree or the burying of a time capsule box, perhaps to be opened on a significant birthday.

 

The ceremony can be an important affirmation for anyone wishing to mark a new stage in their life or celebrate a gender transition. 

 

The ceremony can also be a lovely way to welcome a child into a mixed faith family. It does not have to be unique to either religion, but can blend elements from both faiths into one respectful, loving celebration for you all to enjoy.

Costs to include: 

- the preliminary meeting at your chosen venue or location

- email and telephone contact throughout 

- first draft & amendment of your unique ceremony script

- presentation of your ceremony script as a keepsake

- commemorative certificate to mark your special occasion

- access to readings & poems

- ceremony rehearsal available (£60 additional cost)

From £350.00

These fees apply to all venues within a 30 mile radius of Beccles.  Extra travel fees may apply outside of this area.

These will be determined on an individual basis.

 

After our initial meeting and you have decided you would like me to create and deliver your ceremony, a 50% non refundable deposit is required to secure the date for you.

The balance is due one month before your ceremony date.
