All ceremonies can be enhanced by adding a simple act which has a symbolic meaning.
The lighting of candles provides an opportunity to think about the light that a child brings into the lives of others.
There are lots of different ways to include candles in a ceremony depending on what you wish to express. Here is an extract from a ceremony I created and conducted in which candles were lit.
"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."
