Yorkshire Naming Ceremonies

The Elegant Celebrant – at YOUR service.

In your Naming / Welcoming Ceremony, we can write the promises and commitments you choose to make to your baby or child. You may choose to involve other significant members of the family to demonstrate their support and love in their own words through poetry, story, music or dance.

Perhaps you would like to make this ceremony into one in which you welcome an adopted child or step children into your family?

You could do this at your family home where everything is to hand , comfortable and familiar or in any place which has meaning , memories and poignancy for you.

It will be my great pleasure to meet you and your family to hear about the kind of ceremony you are imagining and to create it together.


Such a precious occasion when you welcome and name your little one.

A moment when you agree to guide, encourage and demonstrate, in your words and deeds, virtues which are good – integrity, honesty, respect and unconditional love.
