Baby and Child Naming

A Celebrant led ceremony is a non-religious ceremony, however you are welcome to include any elements of faith or belief into your ceremony.

 

A Traditional baby christening in a church is not right for those who do not attend church and do not want to make false promises to bring their child up in the church.  How many times have you been to a christening and witnessed the Godparents giggling as they make those false promises?

 

A naming ceremony allows you to celebrate you greatest creation, your child, in a way that suits you, with promises which you or I write, which hold value and meaning.  Grandparents, Siblings and Close friends (who you chose in place of Godparents) can also make befitting promises to your child.

 

Like all Celebrant led ceremonies, this will be a personalised ceremony to celebrate your child’s life and all that is ahead of them.

Adoption or Two Families Uniting

You can celebrate any life event you choose; adopting a child or uniting two families is a great reason to celebrate.

 

I can create a ceremony for you.

Just when you think you know love, someone little comes along and reminds you just how big love is!

Handfasting or Tying The Knot

To ‘tie the knot’ is a saying you are probably familiar with which comes from a wedding tradition almost as old as time itself – the handfasting ceremony. The couple’s hands are bound together in matrimony by tying a knot of cloth, ribbon or rope, around their hands, and so two become one.

 

A full handfasting ceremony holds many celtic traditions and can be a full ceremony in itself but a mini-handfasting, incorporating a blessing and tying of ribbons or a cord can be a beautiful and meaningful addition to a ceremony.  It is especially befitting when the couple have children from previous relationships as this is a great way to incorporate them and represent the union of the two families.

Services for furry family members

Doing a pet funeral is no different from a human one. We are celebrating a life which has been loved and will be very much missed. Your ‘farewell ceremony’ will be bespoke and personal and I am happy to provide music.

 

Saying farewell to Duke by his family:

 

“Katie at Dignity recommended a celebrant who would hold a proper service for me, Karen Davis, she was lovely. She called me and we spoke about Duke and his impact on our lives and from this she wrote a wonderful eulogy for him.

On the day of his funeral, we followed Duke from Nottingham to Hook in Hampshire and there Karen, the celebrant, was waiting. We had a proper send-off for Duke. We sat in the gardens and they brought Duke out and we placed flowers and cuttings from his favourite tree with him and placed photos of him nearby. Karen started the service and then read out the eulogy with ‘Bright Eyes’ and ‘Adagio for Strings’ played as we said our final goodbye to our wonderful boy.”

Every precious moment becomes a precious memory!

You can celebrate any event or momentous occasion in life and as every ceremony is written especially for who it is for, it is possible to celebrate with a ceremony any event you choose to.

 

Shortly following the COVID19 pandemic I held a graduation ceremony for students from the ski club at the University of Leeds.  The university had cancelled all graduation ceremonies and they invited me to hold a ceremony for them where they would celebrate and have photos within their friendship group.

 

Anything is possible. Dreams are just reality waiting to happen!
