Unique Naming Ceremony

Make it Special… Make it Matter


Welcoming a new baby is a momentous occasion and one to celebrate with family and friends. For many couples, a traditional christening is not an option – they are looking for something non-religious that can still be moving and memorable.

A Naming Ceremony can be for children of any age and can include readings, poems, music and involve other family members. You have total flexibility to create the ceremony that suits you, your family and your child.

You can have input to your naming ceremony script or you can give me complete creative freedom to write your ceremony for you. You then have the option to make amendments to your script before the day.

Your naming ceremony can be traditional, contemporary, formal, informal, serious, fun or as quirky as you like!

How it works… 3 simple steps before the big day

1. We chat on the phone or video call

To discuss what you are looking for from your ceremony and so that I can answer any questions you may have.

2. We meet up

This meeting will give you the opportunity to input to your ceremony script by giving me the background information I need to really personalise your ceremony.

3. I research, develop and write your ceremony script

Your script will tell your story and be tailored to reflect your personalities, faiths views and values. You will be given the opportunity to amend your script before the big day.

I want to make sure you are completely happy with your ceremony script so you can amend your ceremony script as many times as you need to before the big day.

….and then of course I will conduct your personalised naming ceremony

Throughout the whole process I will be on hand to answer your questions by phone or email, offer advice and ideas or just a listening ear!

Wedding Ceremony - Dartford, Kent

Our ceremony was a really special part of our day. Colette got to know all the little details about our lives, when and how we met, and what's important to us in our lives together. She wrote our story and it made us laugh and cry, with all the personal touches. On the day the time just flew by!

Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was, and it just couldn't have been more perfect.

Wedding Ceremony - Yateley, Hampshire

"I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts...
the ceremony was honestly such a highlight for me and regardless of restrictions I wouldn't have done it any other way.
Our guests were also really complimentary about you."

Thank you! Tiffany & Michael

Wedding Ceremony - Fulham, London

Colette saved our day! We had to find a celebrant to replace ours within 24 hours of our wedding. She listened to what we wanted and picked up all the details quickly. During the ceremony we had to run inside half way through because the heavens opened! Colette managed the situation well while adding her personal touch to the ceremony.

Our guests also thought she was great.

Wedding Ceremony - Surbiton, Surrey

Colette was a joy to work with in every way. She was calming, patient, inspiring, helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. In light of recent circumstances, I can tell you from experience that you must have a celebrant-led wedding! Colette will give you a truly magical ceremony to cherish all your married lives together. A very big THANK YOU from the happy couple - Ashley and Ross xxx

Renewal of Vows - Bournemouth, Dorset

We just wanted to say a massive Thank You for our renewal of vows ceremony yesterday. We were both so impressed by your professionalism, flexibility (it would have helped if Debs hadn't sprained her ankle the day before!) and the wording of our ceremony was awesome (tear-jerking)! All in all, a fantastic day.

Debs & Trevor

Nothing is too much trouble!

Colette is the most organised person I know! She takes great care to ensure all the details are covered and nothing is too much trouble. I have known Colette for 20 years and would not hesitate to recommend her, she will work really hard to make sure you have a fantastic day!



Naming Ceremony - Oxted, Surrey

I have known Colette for over 20 years and am so excited that we booked her for our granddaughter's naming ceremony. Her bubbly personality and attention to detail make her the perfect choice for any celebration.


Wedding Ceremony - Twyford, Berkshire

We asked Colette to be our celebrant for our wedding at very short notice due to last minute complications with our arrangements and Colette saved the ceremony and made our wedding so special! Colette is a superb celebrant, providing a high quality and personalised service from start to finish. She really spent time getting to know us, resulting in a celebration that was memorable and full of personal touches. We are so grateful to Colette for helping make our special day so perfect.

Rosie and Chris

Wedding Ceremony London

Colette officiated at our wedding recently and I would have no hesitation recommending her. From the start, Colette listened to our wishes and built a wonderful bespoke ceremony which made our day very special. Colette's warm personality shone through on the day and we couldn't have wished for more. Colette is easy to do business with and I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Colette!
