Most people think that you have a religious christening or nothing! This is not so...
Working closely with you, I can create a beautiful ceremony for you and your family to introduce and name your new baby/young person and celebrate their life with your friends and family.
I ask you loads of questions and work with you to create a bespoke ceremony script. My life has changed over the years from a mum with 2 young daughters: studying full time for a BA Hons Criminology, a spiritual healer, 15 years as local housing departmental manager and then starting my own travel consultancy. It was at this point I realised how much memories mean to us all. 24 years ago, I travelled to South Africa after I got home, I wanted to share these memories with my daughters, so the following year I went back taking them with me. They still talk of those memories to this day.
