Not everyone wants a traditional christening or baptism, however a baby naming ceremony is a beautiful way to welcome your little bundle of joy to the world. This ceremony is not solely for babies, any age range will be catered for. I strongly believe that if there are siblings they too are made an important part of the day.
With the increasing number of step families and children taking on a new partner's surname. Holding a ceremony to validate how important that step has been both for the parents and the child/children can bring the family together.
