Naming Ceremonies can be a beautiful part of your and your child’s journey together. If you feel that a church christening is not for you, then a naming ceremony can be held wherever you wish.
My ceremonies are as different as the people involved. I feel gifted to be able to work in combining your cultural customs and traditions, acknowledging the joy of coming to the end of an adoption process to welcoming a child into the family, or acknowledging new names of blended family coming together, honouring the coming of age into teenage or adulthood and celebrating with gender and sexuality new identities, to name but a few.
I can help with how to make your chosen naming ceremony right for you, and perhaps offer suggestions how to make it extra-special from including it within birthday or other occasion for example. Whatever the occasion, why not contact me for a chat to see what will work for you?

My focus as a family celebrant is to create a friendly and loving ceremony filled with happiness, with a view to capturing your beliefs, traditions, and desires for your day.
I can support with words, readings, poems, pledges, music, visual tributes and even how to acknowledge someone special who is not present anymore.
Happy to attend where it works for you whatever the occasion.
Renewal of Vows
There are many reasons why couples want to renew their vows from reaffirming those wedding day vows, acknowledge their love after many years of marriage perhaps back when funds were limited, can now have the ceremony they missed out on. Or perhaps after ill-health or for some, after a wobbly relationship, to represent the rekindling of their love.
Whatever the reason, I am here to make the moment perfect just for you. With no legalities, the world is your oyster when it comes to these ceremonies! In other words, anything goes, and I will open you up to a world of possibilities in this area.
Being experienced in an abundance of approaches and techniques to suit, so if you are wanting a more humanist style, a religious text or spiritual one; you will receive an excellent custom not standard service.
Anything goes! If you want it to feel like a second wedding, or to emphasise celebrating journey of your partnership up to now and your future, or focus on rekindling your love, talk to me and achieve a memorable occasion.
At the centre of my service is you, so tell me about you, your journey together and as individuals, family, your wants/hopes for the future in way comfortable for you. I will ask if you have any religious or spiritual preferences and will make suggestions to incorporate heartfelt elements with sentimental (and historic) meanings in a visual demonstration, which can have your guests in awe. I can incorporate any children or guests involving them in your ceremony if you wish. I write your ceremony in the style representing you, and when you are satisfied it is simply perfect, I will conduct this in the way to bring those emotions/sentiments alive.

I steer the whole process guaranteeing dignified goodbye is delivered, a true reflection of that person in memories you wish to capture, in a style you choose – whether a gentle goodbye or a fabulous farewell.
If you wish to pre-arrange your own funeral, I support you regardless how far/close your passing is.
I have a prior background working in criminal justice, victim-led, learning disabilities sectors and counselling.

Amanda-Louise Knight Celebrant Review
A friend recommended Amanda-Louise to be the celebrant at my mother’s funeral. Like most people in my position I found the prospect of organising not only a funeral but my own mother’s funeral during Covid19 times. But Amanda-Louise was absolutely amazing. She was so caring, compassionate, understanding and most of all friendly. She listened intently to the type of funeral service we required (I didn’t know there were so many options), made notes, asked questions to get to know not only us but my mother too – consequently offered suggestions. The result was amazing if you could say a funeral was perfect – this was genuinely it. I can’t put into words how grateful I am to Amanda – Louise’s professional and compassionate approach to a very emotional event. Whatever the event if I could employ Amanda-Louise again I would have no hesitation whatsoever.
