Naming Ceremonies

Naming Ceremonies involve you making a commitment to your child. It involves your friends and family committing their support.
There are many ways in which a child can come into our lives.
A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to acknowledge your baby or older child joining your family.
A naming ceremony could be to celebrate an adoption or blending families together.
It’s a joyous occasion to share with the special people in your life.
As a Civil Celebrant I can ensure that your vision is brought to life.
The event can be held at any location and at the time of your choice.

My approach is very flexible.
I am excited to collaborate to develop your vision into a memorable and loving ceremony.
Whether it’s at a venue or outside in a special location such as the beach, a family garden or some woodlands.
It’s not traditional like a christening in a church but choosing a Celebrant reflects your non traditional approach.
I offer an initial discussion, follow up meetings to discuss and share ideas, the creation of your bespoke ceremony. On the day I will be with you every step of the way. I will lead the ceremony, incorporating the personal touches, the inclusion of your guide parents, guardians or god parents. The sharing of poems, music and symbolic gestures, I will celebrate alongside you.

Why choose Jacqueline for your naming ceremony?

I love to listen, to understand and to create. I am a nanny to six amazing grandchildren, I’m very hands on and love interacting with them. I am very comfortable in their presence and not fazed by the unexpected! I would love the opportunity to discuss how you would like to recognise and celebrate your new addition. Let’s collaborate and create wonderful memories with your loved one’s. I will be with you every step of the way. My recent client said “We now have a number of family members preferring the idea of having a naming ceremony rather than a traditional christening”

Funeral | 02/21/2024 | Kemnal Park Chislehurst

Jac was our celebrant for our dear Mums funeral, Jac is also my cousin. I would recommend Jac to anyone, she is the most caring, helpful, thoughtful person you could ever wish to meet. Every step of the way Jac was there for us, not because we’re cousins, but because that’s who Jac is. She is a people’s person, and is there to make sure your day goes as easy as it can. Her patience, kindness and thoughtfulness shone through. Jac works with you, she knows the importance of your day. Nothing is too much and she will be there for you whenever you need her . If you want someone who is there all the way for you and gives you her complete care and attention then I can highly recommend Jac. You will not be dissapointed .

Funeral | 02/21/2024 | Kemnal crematorium

Jac did my mums funeral. Jac is my cousin, she is a beautiful person in side and out who really cares for everyone. She is kind, loving, and caring, she made a very tough day so much easier. It was a very personal, emotional day for her but she kept it very professional. Her thoughtful support made all the difference. We are a split family, 2 of us sisters live in the UK and my other 2 sisters live in Australia but she ensured we were all involved together all the way. I would highly recommend Jac for any special event you may have. Thank you Jac for making mums send off so very very special.

Funeral | 01/17/2024 | South London Crematorium

I cannot thank Jac enough for leading my grandfather’s funeral. In speaking to the family, she was able to orchestrate a service that really told the story of the man he was. Her style is one led by warmth and compassion and I am incredibly grateful that she gave me the opportunity to read a poem I had written, despite it being a last minute decision and one that hadn’t made it into the order of service! She made sure our final farewell was a fitting tribute and I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant going forward. Thank you, Jac!
