Naming or Welcoming Ceremonies

The tradition of Naming is present in all cultures, in one form or another. 

Naming or Welcoming is a gentle acknowledgement of the new member's place in the Family and Community.

The Ceremony can take many forms, and can include readings or poems read by guests, parents or guardians; gifts or tokens; tree plantings and many other symbolic elements to be explored and discussed.  

I have some great ideas!


Weddings too are anchored in ancient tradition, family and community.

I believe a wedding takes place between the couple and the role of the Celebrant is to make their Wedding Day a special one for the couple and their families.

I do this by listening closely to what the couple express and making suggestions as to what might be suitable for them, based on our conversations.

I love the build up to the day; but whereas the couple might be a bit frantic in the days before the Big Day, I will be putting the final touches to the ceremony, taking time out to reflect on this unique couple and getting ready to make this a day of their dreams!
