Baby Naming Ceremonies

After experiencing five difficult years trying to have a child, I fully appreciate the miracle that this is (and, of course, the experience of childbirth!), and also how valuable and important celebrating the event can be!

Adoption & Welcome to the Family Ceremonies

I also have experience of the beauty of adoption, as at six weeks old, I was adopted into a loving family by my parents and my brother. I recognise and appreciate the value of adoption and the love and happiness it can bring a child and their new family.

From both these experiences, as a celebrant, I love naming ceremony with full understanding of how important it is to welcome a new person to the family and the recognition and bonding that a ceremony can bring. There is also no age limit or restrictions for naming ceremonies so if your child has reached a certain turning point, a naming ceremony would be perfect to acknowledge this important step.

Fancy singing some songs, playing a game of rounders or even a food or water fight?

Naming Ceremonies

Naming Ceremonies can be as formal, informal, spiritual, religious or non-religious as you require.

The most important thing is to create a meaningful ceremony concentrating on the joys of life as a family and the adventures ahead that come with it.
Your ceremony can be anywhere you would like them and as long as you would like them to be. The priority is also to bring smiles to the faces of everybody involved.

Louisa was absolutely amazing, she did a brilliant job at conducting our little girls Naming Ceremony, changing the script to exactly what we wanted and definitely didn’t disappoint! Would recommend and everyone commented on how lovely the ceremony was! – Sam

Louisa held our naming day ceremony for us, we were so pleased with everything she did from first point of contact to the actual ceremony. She made the day really special by finding out all about the children first and making the ceremony really personal to us. Louisa was very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for making our special day perfect! – Louisa Soley

From the minute I enquired with Louisa about my daughter’s naming ceremony to the minute she left the venue, it has been an absolute joy to work with Starr Gazing Ceremonies. I couldn’t have asked for a more personal and thoughtful ceremony, beautiful memories have been made. Thank you so much! – Meg Wellington-Barratt
