I have provided an example of a short reading for you within the above video.
Every Name has a Story...
When a name is chosen there has been a lot of thought put into the reasoning behind its choice. Whether the name is traditional, has a meaning or is personal to you, there is a story to tell.
The birth of a child is a special and joyous occasion, celebrated not only by you but also your family and friends. A baby naming ceremony provides the opportunity for your precious little one to be welcomed into your family, and into the lives of those who will be a part of your child's world.
There are many reasons for the sharing or changing of your name. You may be creating a new family, either through adoption or by two different families coming together. You may be transitioning. Perhaps you have decided that you are more suited to another name for personal, religious or spiritual reasons. A naming ceremony will provide you with the platform to introduce the 'new you' to your family, friends and the wider community.
Whether it's a small get together at home or a grand occasion, it would be a privilege to work with you to create a beautiful and personal ceremony, that is as unique as you would wish it to be.
What Happens Next?
After you get in touch, I will arrange to meet with you and we can chat about what kind of ceremony you want and the type of things you would like to be included. If, after this initial meeting, you feel that I am the right celebrant for you, then we can get down to the fun part. Together we will create your wonderful, memorable ceremony, tailored to your requirements. On the day of your special event I will deliver the ceremony. I will also provide you with a quality keepsake.
I also feel it is important that I am transparent about pricing before we speak. As such, you don't have any uncertainty relating to my fees. The cost for me to deliver a naming ceremony is £195.00*. This fee includes our meeting, my preparation time and the delivery of the ceremony, as well as associated expenses. There is no cost for our initial meeting.
To find out more or to book a meeting please contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
*Please note that for ceremonies outwith the West Lothian and Falkirk areas, there will be an additional cost for travel expenses. This will be agreed with you prior to our initial meeting.
