Naming ceremonies are the perfect way to welcome a child – of any age - into a family, helping to confirm their identity, whether new-borns, adopted children or step children. Single parents also find such a ceremony a wonderful way to affirm their commitment to their child.
While faith-based ceremonies such as Christenings have long-established traditional scripts, choosing the right words for a more personal ceremony can be difficult.
As part of the ceremony planning process, Diana likes to meet each family personally and get to know the baby or child and takes time to create a script that meets her high standards as well as fulfilling parents dreams. She will bring along her valuable resource material and help you choose or write your own promises, select readings and music for the ceremony and make suggestions for additional ceremony content to ensure each ceremony is personalised and embraces the family and guests.
The child being named and each godparent/guide parent receive a personalised parchment certificate to remind them of their promises and duties.
As a parent herself, she knows it takes a lot of trust for parents to literally place their baby in her hands, but they can rest assured and be comfortable putting their faith in her, and that this will result in the perfect naming ceremony for your child.
