Baby naming

Baby Naming (sometimes called Baby Blessing) ceremonies welcome a new baby into a family and community. These are often short and poingant occasions followed by food and socialising. To create the ceremony that is right for you, we start off with a visit to find out what would work best for you; we develop the ceremony from there.

I can cover anywhere up to a 10 miles from Stratford, East London and a family visit is included. The cost is from £200 and is dependent on the ceremony - please contact me for more details.

A sensitively conducted and inclusive experience for the whole family. A joy!

Ian worked with us to plan just the right kind of ceremony for us. He was organised, creative, professional, and managed to turn our vague ideas into a beautiful, coherent ceremony. He was a wonderful officiant and helped me to feel at ease throughout.

It was a lovely occasion, and you were brilliantly professional without being too formal - the tone of the ceremony was exactly right. We'd certainly recommend you to others
