Naming Ceremonies Hertfordshire

One of the most exciting events in a family’s life is the arrival of a new baby or child, and many of us want to celebrate the occasion in a memorable and special way. If you are looking for a modern alternative to a traditional Christening or Baptism, this is the ceremony for you.
A Naming Ceremony can also be a wonderful opportunity to welcome an adopted child or stepchild into your family. These Naming Ceremonies are for children of any age and you may wish to include your other children as well as a new baby.
Naming Ceremonies can be anything you want them to be. They can be non religious or incorporate religious elements to reflect your beliefs and those of your family and friends. They have become increasingly popular for families of mixed faiths, and also parents who have no wish to raise their child within a particular faith. The child is then free to make his or her own decisions and informed choices later in life.
Bernadette designs and creates unique Naming Ceremonies, to suit the ideals, beliefs and wishes of her customers. This provides an ideal opportunity for parents to publicly declare their commitment to nurture and care for their child, and to declare their hopes and aspirations for their child’s future.  
They are a way of welcoming a child into the wider community and Bernadette will help you with choices of music and readings, venues and planning, and the inclusion of supporting adults, mentors, or godparents. As a professional Celebrant she will present a Ceremony as formal or informal as you so wish, making the day a truly memorable occasion.  
A Gift To Your Child. 

Bernadette offers her customers the option to include a gift for their special and memorable occasion. She provides a fostered orphan elephant, part of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s “Baby Elephant Foster Parent Programme”. 

This is a truly unique and novel gift that can be enjoyed throughout the year. A foster certificate, photograph, watercolour and profile of the baby elephant are presented during the ceremony. For a baby elephant the family is so important and its very existence is dependant on its mother for the first two years of its life. Through companionship and a close knit family, it will experience love: pure and unconditional, all the days of its life. This is so true for a child. Bernadette’s gift is a symbol of this special relationship.
