Baby Welcoming Ceremony- Summer 2018

So moving! The garden was bursting with love and affection for this special family as we welcomed baby Martha

Baby’s Father:

“Helen recently conducted a naming ceremony for our baby daughter. As non-religious parents, we wanted all the sense of ceremony and importance of a more traditional christening, but obviously without the religious messages. Helen delivered the most wonderful service in our garden on a sunny Saturday afternoon in late July. It was exactly what we were hoping it would be! Helen had met with us and spoken to us several times before the occasion in order to put together an order of service and ‘vibe’ we were happy with. The result was an incredibly personal, thoughtful, happy and beautiful service. We can’t thank Helen enough for all her hard work in planning the event to welcome our little girl into the world. It was such a special event, and all our friends and family commented on what a wonderful ceremony it was. In the few weeks we have known Helen in the time leading up to the service, her warmth and general loveliness made the whole process of planning very easy and enjoyable. The service itself felt like it was being delivered by one of our own family: that’s how skilled Helen is as a celebrant.  We can’t speak highly enough of Helen, and we will be recommending her services to our friends and family for many years to come.

Thank you, Helen, for providing us with a beautiful service  that we will cherish forever (at least until we book you for the next one”.

Baby’s Grandma:

“I want to tell you about a wonderful day yesterday- my son is still emotional about it, as am I. The naming ceremony was conducted by the most AMAZING celebrant who completely made the day. What a lady. It was so emotional for us all. My sister cried all the way through and I had something in my eye making it water…not sure what it was!!! She even bought the sunshine..as I’ve heard she always does.
