Celebrate your baby
A baby naming ceremony provides the perfect opportunity for you to welcome your child into your family and circle of friends. It's also an occasion for you to express your thanks to all the people who have supported you, and to declare your love and hopes for your child’s future.
How it all works
#1 Let's meet
We'll have an initial hello meeting and talk about your hopes for the ceremony and I can offer ideas to help you with your planning.
Once you've confirmed you'd like to go ahead, I'll provide a helpful resources pack including examples of readings and poems, as well as a questionnaire for you to complete to help me write a heartfelt ceremony that reflects your baby's story. And then it's over to me to write the masterpiece! And you'll have the opportunity to review and refine your ceremony.
#3 Your ceremony
I will conduct the beautiful naming ceremony and set the tone for the happy celebration that follows.
My ceremony costs exclude travel costs. I'm located on the North Shore and if the travel is 20km+, there may be an additional travel cost.
I ask for a non-refundable deposit of $100 at the time of booking and the final balance needs to be paid a week before the date of your naming ceremony.
I contribute 10% of my service fees to the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
