As these type of ceremonies are non-statutory you can structure a ceremony to match your ideas.
This is a simple order of service which might be useful as a starting point if you are considering holding a Naming or Welcoming ceremony.
Opening words by Celebrant
The family story
Explanation of the name's meaning and family connections
Supporting adults' promises
Lighting a candle or similar action
Signing of a commemorative certificate
This simple ceremony can be added to by including other adults who may wish to make promises such as Grandparents, additional readings, musical items and the giving gifts.
Each ceremony I conduct has a unique script which has been written to reflect your hopes and wishes for your child's future.
I love this type of ceremony and would love to discuss what is possible so please do not hesitate to contact me.

Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
