Baby Namings can be spiritual too!

Baby Namings can be spiritual too!
Celebrants receive all sorts of requests from families when they have a new baby in their midst.

Many people do not realise that just because a Naming ceremony is not a "Christening" the style of the ceremony does not have anti-god nor bland.

4-bears-namingWhat a great day to be a Celebrant..

A Naming Ceremony for a little lad, with all of his family all around in a beautiful location on the headland at Elliott Heads in Queensland.The request was for a "Spiritual.. not Religious" ceremony, so I dug into my English Heritage and borrowed from the ancient Wiccan philosophies.

I used the aspect of the 4 Elements as blessings and we (the little one's mother that is..) decorated the 4 Bears to reflect this powerful imagery.

The Ceremony was a delightful experience for all of us.. relaxed and fun.

Some photos show the love in the air that day.

Keep Smiling.


and the Parents wrote to me afterwards..

" Hi Pat,

Thanks for a great ceremony.

There were many positive comments about it. The teddies were a hit!

There are few photos without a teddy in them! Everyone signed them afterwards. They will be a great momento.

My sister was enquiring about your services as she is getting married in April next year, so I'll be sure to pass on your business card and I may see you again then!

Kind regards,

Kxxxx Bxxxx"
