    Writing and delivering your celebration

    After an initial chat over the phone, we meet to talk about the kind of naming ceremony that you have in mind. This is an opportunity to share lots of ideas about the content and style of your celebration, including readings, themes, venues and extra little touches. This is also an important time for me to listen to the unique story of your family, so that I can craft a beautiful script which is entirely personal to you.

    I’m based in the lovely village of Barford St John on the edge of the Cotswolds, so I cover Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. If you’re elsewhere during the planning stage, I’m happy to meet via skype.

    Your script will edited to meet your wishes and a presentation copy and special naming ceremony certificate presented on the day. Writing and delivering your ceremony will cost £320.

    Venue hunting

    This is a great option if you’re pushed for time, or if you want to find a venue that’s really unusual. Naming ceremonies can be held anywhere. Unlike for weddings, there’s no need for the venue to be licensed, so there’s a wonderful choice of locations, both inside and out.

    We agree a brief and I identify a short list of five choices, with comparisons. I love a challenge, so if you want a fort, a funfair or a farm – just say the word!. Once I’ve narrowed down the options, you can take it from here or I can liaise with the venue on your behalf.

    Costs will vary depending on the scope of the brief.

    Little touches

    There are heaps of lovely extras that make a naming ceremony really personal to you and your guests. Orders of service, gifts for sponsors, wishing trees to gather messages of love and support and many other special little touches.

    If you’d like help tracking down just the right lovely things, we agree a brief and I source a range of products and suppliers for you to choose from.

    Themes

    Themes are a great way to bring together creative ideas. Ideal themes for naming ceremonies are those that are connected with new beginnings and growth.

    If Spring is your inspiration, then how about a woodland ceremony with a gorgeous picnic lunch and blooming bulbs in pots for guests to take away as a lasting reminder of your celebration.

    Naming ceremonies can be big, small and anything in between; elaborate and flamboyant, or simple and pared back. Whatever kind of event you want to hold, developing themes together is part of the service to write and deliver your ceremony.
