Lighting a candle
Candles have long been the symbol of light and hope and there is a tradition of using them in ceremonies of all kinds.
Below is an extract from a ceremony in which a candle was jointly lit by all the people who would form the circle of support for the child.
"This is a symbol of the light and warmth which has been bought into all of your lives through the birth of this child.
As this candle burns brightly, so we hope that this child's pathway in life will have a bright future. May they know the warmth of the love that surrounds them."
