Holly Smith ♡ Celebrant London

Baby Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming ceremonies and Family Unification ceremonies | £500*

Many families want to celebrate the arrival of a new baby, but often feel that a religious service is not for them. I work with you to create something that welcomes the new arrival and feels truly special for the whole family.

It is also becoming increasingly common for joining families to have a Unification ceremony, often as part of a big party. It’s a chance to welcome new relatives, and to help children feel part of their new family group.

Firstly we’ll meet up and spend some time getting to know each other so I can find out more about you, your family, and your ideas for your ceremony.

Once you’ve confirmed the booking, I’ll start writing your ceremony script. I can offer suggestions, incorporate your wishes, and together we can create something that feels perfect for you. I can also suggest ways that you can involve family and friends in the ceremony, to make sure the most important people in your lives are recognised.

In the run up to the day I will send you a script for the ceremony. You’ll get lots of input and your feedback is welcome. We’ll work together until you are 100% happy with the result.

On the day I will arrive early and deliver your service as planned, a beautiful and memorable ceremony for you and your guests.

Afterwards you’ll get a commemorative copy of the ceremony script and any readings to treasure forever.

Got a date in mind?

Ceremonies are booked up to 2 years in advance and are available throughout the year. Let’s speak soon!


*My fees cover all of the above and travel within London and the M25. I am happy to travel outside London if expenses are covered and we can discuss this at the time of booking.
