Marriage Celebrant Jenny Stevens
Naming Ceremonies are the modern day version of a Christening. You are not deciding your child's religion, you are encouraging them to explore the world and eventually if they want to be a certain religion they will choose that for themselves.
The Ceremony involves Naming your child in front of family and friends and welcoming them into your community and hearts.
Your child does not have to be a baby.
I recently did a Ceremony for 3 siblings aged 11yrs 5yrs and 18mths
You receive a Naming Certificate for your child, plus 2 Godparent Certificate's (you may call them Mentors Guardians etc) done in calligraphy. If you require extra certificates they are available at a reasonable price.
There are many ways that you can incorporate family and friends or add alternatives to give your ceremony an unforgettable touch, take a look at Ceremony alternatives, most of these can be adapted to suit a Naming Ceremony
As a gift from me you will receive a bottle of wine that will have a poem on the front and details of their birth and heritage on the back. It will also list their Godparents/Mentors/Guardians and the music played on the day (Some people purchase extra wine bottles as a gift to their child's Godparents, they are $30 each) Your child will also receive a small gift from me of a small Guardian Angel. I ask that you select three songs - one for entry the second for when we go to the signing table and a third for the end. All you need to do is give me the name of the song and who sings it and I will do the rest. One of my Granddaughters comes along and does the music so as it is dimmed and timed at the correct times. Nothing worse than music just being cut off.
