Naming Ceremony – an exciting and meaningful start for the new arrival

A really bespoke ceremony for you!

A ceremony created with your family in mind by Vows That Wow can be a beautiful milestone in the birth of your new family.

This is especially suitable for those who hold no particular religious beliefs but want a special event to mark a birth.

If you and your partner come from different religious backgrounds, we can provide a respectful blend of both.

Your ceremony is at a place you choose (outdoors, if you dare!). It can be as traditional (or modern) as you like.

The words and flow of the ceremony are specially designed to meet your needs, beliefs and wishes. It may contain readings, pledges and commitments, petal showers and candle-lighting. I work with you to create the perfect combination to make your ceremony unique.

Your naming ceremony can be as religious (or not) as you choose. Each one is different. What is common to them all is that parents, grandparents, supporting adults (such as godparents) have the opportunity to take part, if they want to. They can make their vows to the child, and, indeed, the guests may also offer their wishes.

Adoption – declaring that the family has been extended

And, of course, it may be that you are welcoming a child into your family through adoption. A naming ceremony can help you to mark a very special occasion in a wonderful, meaningful, memorable way with those people who supported you through the adoption process and will now support you as new parents.

Step-Children – uniting the new family

If you are re-marrying, what better way to welcome your step-children into their new family? Please contact me, and I will be delighted to speak to you about your plans for a naming ceremony and see if they are right for you.

Michael helped us to create an extremely personal and moving ceremony to celebrate the birth of our daughter. He was responsive to our requirements and preferences, and had just the right manner and approach on the day to make everything go extremely successfully. Michael is also very communicative and well-organised throughout the preparation for an event, and has a great deal of experience and material upon which to draw. A collaborative and enjoyable process culminating in a great day.
