What a joy it was to officiate Ethan Michael’s Baby Blessing and Naming Ceremony near Wycombe this weekend.
Ethan is such a happy bubbly little baby, although this photo of us taken after the ceremony tells another story! Throughout the service, however, he giggled and gargled away quite merrily – we even ended up blowing big raspberries at each other in the middle of his personal blessing!
Despite the rain, Laura and Paul (Ethan’s mum and dad!) did a great job of welcoming all their family to their home to celebrate together, with some guests even joining us on Skype to be part of the day.
All three of Ethan’s Godparent’s and his Great Grandad Mick entertained us with wonderful poems and readings thoughout, and his parents read their personal promises to look after and nurture this beautiful baby boy from here onwards.
I was honoured to be the first guest of the day asked to place my photo (with Ethan) inside his special keepsake photo album, along with a little message for him to look back on over the future years to come…
… congratulations Ethan, and lots of love to Laura and Paul too! xx

It was such an honour this weekend to officiate Noah’s Naming Ceremony and family blessing at The Queen’s Temple in Stowe Gardens, part of the glorious Stowe House.
Noah’s family and friends gathered for a gorgeous ceremony inside the temple, where not only did we formally introduce this little boy the the world and bless his name, we also celebated in the coming together of all 5 members of his family, including his mummy and daddy Sarah and Glyn, and two big brothers, Harry and Leo.
Noah’s parents and brothers all made personal promises towards their duty in bringing him up in a loving and nurturing home environment, and his chosen godparents (all 7 of them!) were appointed and asked to cement their vow to assist in his care and guidance when called upon as friends. Such a special moment for everyone!
Everybody who came to celebrate was invited to write their own personal message of love or guidance on a little paper heart, all of which were gathered and sealed tight in a big ‘Jar of Hearts’ for Noah to keep and look back on with his family in the future. There was so much love in the room for this smiley little sweetheart!
It was a beautiful day, and made even better with sunshine, laughter, a BBQ and a heap of cupcakes to be enjoyed… delicious!
I was so honoured to be presented with a beautiful bunch of lillys and roses in thanks for my help… so very treasurable indeed, thank you so much Sarah and Glyn! The family also left a lovely review for me on Facebook… thank you!
Samantha wrote such lovely words for our sons Naming Ceremony, so personal and perfectly capturing of our family. Absolute pleasure to meet you Samantha, so many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was… X
I’d like to wish Noah and all of his family a life full of health, wealth, smiles and happiness… with all my love x
