Naming Days are a wonderful and relaxed alternative to traditional Christening, where you include anything and everything that represents and celebrates you, your family and your child's world. We can also adapt the ceremony to be suitable for other precious celebratory events such as adoptions and blended families.

Include some cultural or family traditions, religious blessings, themes, family involvement and beautiful readings or poetry, all designed to suit your family's style and your child's character.
My ceremonies are warm and light-hearted and bring your guests together to informally celebrate your new arrival.

I will personally research and suggest suitable readings, poems and symbolisms and I will help you to find the perfect words for your Parent, Grandparent and Guide Parent promises.

How we work together

Creating and delivering your ceremony is about listening really carefully to what you want to say about your relationship and writing a knock-out script for all your family and friends to experience, that reflects this individuality. Here’s how we will work together.

Beautiful Naming Day

I can’t express enough in words how amazing Kathy is! She made my son's naming day such a beautiful event that the memory will always be so precious to us! From start to finish the attention to detail was incredible, the beautiful Guide parent certificates, the beautifully presented script, the sand ceremony and the words she used, I couldn’t recommend it enough, we had a naming ceremony for my eldest and the level of service didn’t even come close! I would use Kathy over and over again! Thank you, Kathy.
