Baby Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming Ceremonies are a wonderful way to welcome new children, whether they are babies born into the family or children adopted into the family.

If you are considering a Naming Ceremony, you already know that a fully religious ceremony is not right for you. However, you still want to welcome your child surrounded by family and friends and a Naming Ceremony is a perfect solution.

Naming Ceremonies involve you making a commitment to the responsible and loving parenting of your child, and your friends and family committing to support you in that process and, importantly, to support your child.

Through the promises you make, you share your love, dedication, hope and dreams for your child. You can choose the music, poems and other rituals such as rose or tree planting, balloon release, treasure boxes amongst others.

With first-hand experience of new-born babies and adoption itself, White Rose Ceremonies® understands how important it is to mark their arrival with a ceremony that fully recognises and celebrates children as an important part of the family unit.

A new child in the family is worthy of a happy and meaningful celebration, and White Rose Ceremonies® can help you create a celebration with a real sense of occasion.


“Rebecca and David were recommended to us for our daughter’s naming day. They are lovely people who adapted the service to reflect our family beautifully. So many friends and family commented afterwards they hadn’t been sure what to expect from the day but thought it was a beautiful ceremony. We can’t recommend them more highly!”

“We always knew that we wanted to make our child’s day a very meaningful and intimate affair. White Rose Ceremonies was recommended to us by the venue and from the very first email it felt right.  We set about organising the date and we were given a Naming Ceremony book to help guide us through the different elements of the day. It offered variations of text, readings and some lovely ideas to make the ceremony extra special. We met with Rebecca to share our ideas and she went away and brought our wishes and vision to life. On our second meeting we also met the lovely David who has such creativity and, like me, thinks outside the box.

The special day – where to start – it is so difficult to put the perfect day into words.   Our little boy was welcomed with so much love, the ceremony was stunning. All our wishes and feelings were put across by Rebecca in such a genuine way. She understood us perfectly; there was kindness, humour, respect and thanksgiving. Not a dry eye in the room it meant so much to every single one of us. Rebecca truly is a beautiful person inside and out.”


“Hi Rebecca, I just wanted to provide some feedback on Finlay’s naming ceremony and say a BIG thank you to you for all your planning to make the ceremony absolutely perfect and completely how we hoped it would be if not better.  So many people who didn’t know what a Naming Ceremony was commented on how lovely you were and how personal you made it for everyone. It was great that you went above and beyond thinking of extra special touches to make the day such a success and we are so grateful that we can treasure the memories and the photos taken on the day. We honestly can’t thank you and recommend your service enough. Kate, Sam and Finlay.”


“Rebecca, I just wanted to thank you and your husband for today it was perfect in every way we couldn’t ask for anything more :)”

“We were so pleased with the ceremony that was conducted by White Rose Ceremonies for our daughter’s naming.  We hadn’t attended a naming ceremony before so were not sure what to expect!  The service was absolutely beautiful.  Rebecca worked with us to get the wording and sentiment just right.  It was very personal and in the end quite emotional.  It was the little touches that made it so special.  We would definitely recommend White Rose Ceremonies to any of our friends who choose to go the same route.  Thank you so much Rebecca and Dave – you helped make this special day a reality.  Thank you again.  The Goys”
