Debbie Skyrme - Celebrant Spain

Rite, rituals and ceremonies mark important life events

From the beginning of time, people have practised rites, rituals and ceremonies.
In every corner of the earth you will discover life events marked by ceremony for example birthdays, comings of age and passing out parades.
I can offer an alternative to traditional or religious blessings - sometimes called non-denominational, non-religious, secular, spiritual or humanist (with a little "h"). I can officiate at your life event ceremony wherever you want it, whenever you want it.
As a Celebrant I have the flexibility and freedom to incorporate themes, blend traditions, mix cultural rituals and fuse faiths into any type of ceremony you want.

Baby Naming & Adoption Ceremonies

Throughout time, as far as records began there has been a strong tradition of welcoming children into the family and naming them - many different traditions in fact, in accordance with local beliefs and cultures.

In Roman times a baby was not considered to be a member of the community until the baby was named.
Ethnic and religious customs have often decreed how a parent should choose their baby's name with nature, seasons, weather, location of birth or a parent's trade often influencing what the child should be called.
Historically and in modern times, ceremonies have been created to recognise the symbolism and significance of welcoming a child into the family. And so it is today, whether it is an adoption ceremony or a baby naming ceremony.

Your adoption or baby naming ceremony may include any statements, vows or promises you wish to make to your child and your hopes for their future.
Many parents often choose supporting adults or "guide parents" who will also say words of commitment and promise to be there for your child in whatever way they may need them.
As with any ceremony, the wording is so important. You may wish to include a favourite song, poem, story or reading that has significance to you.
And if the child is older, I would recommend actively including them in every aspect of the festivities as essentially it is their party!

They say that a definition of parenthood is: the longest days and the shortest years of your life.
Celebrate every moment!
