Often arranged to coincide with a child’s first birthday.
A Naming Ceremony for your baby, a child or even an adult is a ‘welcome’ into the wider family unit, circle of friends and the broader community.
It is considered one of ‘Life’s Celebrations’.
As humans, we all identify with our name; we give it importance and meaning because it belongs to us.
Celebrating this occasion is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to gather and for those people special in the life of the individual to be named,
to support and guide this person on their journey through life.
I would be delighted to help you to celebrate this wonderful event in your family member’s life by creating a meaningful and personalised ceremony. I have many ideas, and great many readings and poems for you to consider.
A souvenir Naming Certificate will be presented for the special person and also, I have Certificates for Godparents or ‘Guardians’ or others as required. I would welcome you inquiry through my contact page.

Commitment or Civil Union Ceremony
A Commitment Ceremony or Civil Union is a celebration of a couples’ public affirmation of their love and commitment to each other where a legal marriage may not be possible due to varying circumstances.
Some examples –
1. Occasionally a couple will need a Commitment Ceremony as they had not appreciated to timeframe for a Marriage Ceremony and could not secure a shortening of time.
2. It is also for couples believing in their genuine commitment to each other, not requiring the legal institution of marriage to make it official.
3. There are also many wonderful couples who cannot legally marry but want a public affirmation of their relationship, and I am here to help with a ceremony honouring your commitment.
I can help
As a Marriage and Civil Celebrant, let me design your meaningful ceremony to celebrate your love and commitment to a shared future. It will be written according to your preferences, including bonding rituals, such as a ‘Tying the Knot’ or Rose Ceremony, with appropriate readings, poems and a blessing.
I would welcome your inquiry.
