Catherine McWade Ceremony expert and personal celebrant

Unique ceremony to introduce your baby to the world

Congratulations on welcoming your new baby into the world. Truly, nothing comes close to the first glimpse of a newborn. Are you one of those families that would like an alternative to the traditional Christening? Would you like a ceremony that is unique and personal and inclusive?
A Baby Naming Ceremony may be what you are looking for. Essentially, this is a coming together of all the people who will play a role in your baby's life. We will formally introduce them to your baby, we will welcome your baby into their family and their community. We will offer friends and family a chance to give their blessings and good wishes to you both and your baby.

I provide a unique and bespoke service by creating and designing a meaningful ceremony in your preferred venue.

This can be in your garden, surrounded by nature, in a hotel, in your home - whatever you visualise, I can bring to life. By incorporating your own ideas, style, traditions and cultural practices, your baby naming ceremony will be etched on your memories forever.
You can, if you wish, choose to appoint Guide Parents or guardians who will make their own promises to love and nurture your baby.

Why choose me

More and more couples are opting to have a baby naming ceremony, either alongside a christening ceremony, or as an alternative, in line with their own beliefs and traditions. How can I help?

I have the experience AND the expertise to bring your wonderful ideas to life. I do this by working closely with you, getting to know you and your families. Really, a truly remarkable and memorable, special and blessed ceremony wouldn't exist without the input from you, the parents. Yes, I can craft it, but it's your words, your ideas that will bring your baby's ceremony to life.

And More

Adding music, poetry and readings all add to the day. However, your ideas are more important here, but, if you're stuck, some of my suggestions might spark some ideas. Some other beautiful enhancements to a baby naming ceremony are, introducing a guide parent or guardian, a candle ceremony, and many more ideas which can be explored when we chat. It's all about your baby and your family, and connecting everyone together in love.
