You will have noticed an addition to the ceremonies offered by Blue Sky Celebrants. This is an addition to the list which is certainly not exhaustive! We can put together a Celebration Ceremony for anything really. All you need to do is ask by visiting our Contact Page and getting in touch.
Baby naming or Baby Welcoming Ceremonies are not a new thing. Known as Christenings or Baptisms these ceremonies used to take place in church or other religious institution. However, more and more these days people are holding these welcoming ceremonies at home or in a garden, field or hotel space.
As Independent Celebrants we will help you plan and deliver the Ceremony within the celebration or party you have in mind. As always the Ceremony will be created with you and will be unique to you and your family and friends. Please do look at our Baby Naming Page for more information.
You will see mentioned the G-Parents. Traditionally a baby boy will have two Godfathers and a Godmother and a baby girl will have two Godmothers and one Godfather. But it does not have to stop there! You can choose to have as many as you like and you can call them whatever you like. Those who may want a degree of religion or spirituality within the ceremony may stick with the name Godparents but they could be called Guide-parents or Guardian-parents or anything else you choose.
Also these Welcoming Ceremonies could be used to celebrate an Adoption or long term Fostering. The subject of the Ceremony need not be a baby but could be a child, teenager or any addition to the family. These Ceremonies can be used to celebrate the beginning of a modern day “blended family” although a Wedding Celebration may be more appropriate.
We could include in the Ceremony, joyful and interactive symbols such as Unity Candles, Sand Ceremonies or Hand Fasting.
The choice is yours so that the important celebration or thank you for something new and exciting can be celebrated in the best possible way.
