There is nothing more precious than welcoming new life. When I see the joy that children bring to their parents’ lives, it is heart-warming and elating. A naming ceremony is the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family.
They can be held at any location of your choice, and you are not restricted in anyway in terms of content and participation of others.
If you would like to entrust your child’s special day with a celebrant who will spend time getting to know you and your family and create a beautiful ceremony, then please get in contact.

Jo made our day very special with a tailor made ceremony that was personal to us. Took lots of time to find out about each of us. Our guests loved it.

Wedding | 07/09/2021 | Nottingham

Jo is absolutely fantastic, she was so attentive and considerate to our needs as a couple. Her approach is extremely personal, she has a great knack for finding out about you and turning it into beautiful words. She adapted and tailored every element of the ceremony to suit what we wanted for our day. We could choose from loads of pre-written vow options, write our own, a combination of the two which was so nice when you’re like me and hated the idea of coming up with something yourself!
We also had a hand fasting ceremony which we loved as something a little different and reflective of us as a couple.
Every single one of our guests told us how beautiful they found the ceremony, how personal it felt and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
