Baby Namings

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

I can cover anywhere up to about 10 miles from Stratford, East London but I can occasionally travel further – a family visit is included. Please contact me for more details and costs.


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

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. ~ Ashleigh

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. ~ William
