"Oh, child, do you know, do you know where you come from?" - Pablo Neruda

There is nothing quite like the joy, hope, marvel and happiness surrounding the birth of a child.

Every race and creed, since the beginning of time, has celebrated the birth of a child through a ceremony of some sort. Perhaps more than weddings and funerals, the arrival of a new baby touches our deepest emotions. Traditionally in Western society, a christening or baptism in a church has been the way we welcome a baby into our families and the world at large.

For many new parents nowadays, a christening or baptism is not what they want, but they still feel the need or desire to acknowledge in some way that they have created a new life. They want to celebrate that this little person is now a part of his or her parents' family, their friends and the community.

A naming ceremony fills this brief most perfectly, allowing the parents to introduce their child, bestow the child’s name, choose godparents/sponsors/mentors, honour grandparents and their role in the child’s upbringing, make wishes and express hopes and dreams for the child.  

There are a variety of symbolic acts such as:
  *  tree planting
  *  candle lighting 
  *  ribbon tying, to name a few.

Involving other children will enhance and make a naming ceremony more meaningful and memorable. And let’s not forget poems, readings and music – all very powerful tools in evoking a special event.

Naming ceremonies can be useful for anyone, at any age. Not only the arrival of a new baby, but also the uniting of step or adopted children within a family, or an adult name change which can be a very significant step in a life taking a new direction - a form of rebirth.

 “You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket." -  Lish McBride

 "I do, still"  

Couples choose to have a vow renewal ceremony for many reasons. It could be a significant anniversary – 10 years, 25 years; or maybe there wasn’t much money around for the first wedding and now the couple want to do it "properly". Maybe the first wedding didn't go as planned; or maybe the couple has recently been through a very tough time - perhaps illness, financial difficulties, or relationship difficulties.

Regardless of the reason for wanting to renew vows, the common thread for the couple is a desire to reaffirm their love and commitment to each other and to the relationship.I can help you create a ceremony thatwill capture the essence of the years you have lived together, how your love has changed and evolved, and how you are still the centre of each other's world.

"It will be  a ceremony of enormous happiness, love and joy, for you to take with you in the years ahead."
