introducing your baby to family and friends

Naming Ceremony

The birth of a child is a joyous occasion and a naming ceremony is a lovely way of welcoming a precious new life into your circle of family and friends.

One of the wonderful things about a naming ceremony is that there are no ‘rules’; there is no right or wrong way to conduct this ceremony. So you can create the ceremony exactly the way you want it to be.
