Baby namings

“Every child begins the world again.”

Welcome to the world, little one!

You have just become the extremely proud parents of a beautiful child. You would like to celebrate this precious new life with your family and friends.

Welcome your little one in a playful ceremony

A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to welcome a new family member into the world and bless them on their life journey that has just begun. Nowadays, family units can take any shape. I can help you in creating a contemporary event that is truly yours.

Naming ceremonies provide a great opportunity for family members and friends to play an active role. You could also include godparents or guardians. There’s also a wide range of rituals available that will add a special and creative dimension to the ceremony. Read here how a family planted a tree to symbolise the life and growth of their children.

How do I work?


  • Let’s meet. To ensure that I am the right person to conduct your day I offer a free, no-obligation meeting face-to-face or via Skype. This consultation allows us to get to know each other and to share ideas around the ceremony. Based on this meeting, I will draft a first outline of the ceremony.
  • Ceremony design. If you decide to work with me, I will design the ceremony in detail. I will write a script and work with you to make sure that you are happy with the various elements.
  • The ceremony. On the day, I will guide you through the ceremony. I then will conduct the ceremony.
  • Keepsake. After the ceremony, I will provide you with a personalised naming certificate, a personalised certificate for the godparents or guardians and a customised booklet with the copy of the ceremony.


I currently charge £275 for a baby naming ceremony. This includes all the services as I have explained above, unlimited calls and email communication. Travel expenses are not included.

Depending on your needs, additional costs might be added that are not covered in the above fees.

For example:

  • Ceremony booklet for your guests
  • Ritual props (e.g., candles, ribbons, pebbles)
  • Travel expenses and accommodation if your ceremony takes place outside London and the UK
