Naming and Welcoming Ceremony

Naming and Welcoming ceremonies are truly special, unique and celebratory events. The arrival of a baby or the adoption of a child of any age is a joyous, life-changing and heart-warming event in the lives of the family who are welcoming them.

A Baby Naming Ceremony or a Welcoming Ceremony celebrates the uniqueness of this new family member. It brings together family and extended family to promise to support the child to grow healthily and safely into adulthood. The ceremony offers parents the opportunity to express their love and lifelong commitment to the child and promise to love and cherish them all of their lives.

The ceremony is uplifting, happy and can include as few or as many family members as possible. Very often parents like to ask friends or family members to become Guide Parents to the child. The Guide Parents are special people who will also promise to cherish the child in a very special way. They commit to supporting the parents to fulfil their responsibilities to their child throughout their lives.
A Baby Naming Ceremony or a Welcoming Ceremony incorporates symbolic enhancements, reflections and commitment charters. Parents are able to include many ways to show their child how welcome they are into their family. These may include:

Creating a wish tree where all guests hang their wishes for the child.

Plant some flowers.

Light a candle of hope.

Build a Memory Box.

Sign a Certificate of Commitment.

Open a Guest Book.

Place a Charm Bracelet on the baby.

Have a Bubbles Bash.
