If a church baptism, communion or confirmation is not a good fit for your beliefs, then why not have our alternatives?

A celebrate me day.

All family ceremonies are as unique as your precious bundle of joy. This is just a sample. We can craft your one of a kind ceremony to align with your family configuration, and how you wish to welcome and bless the new gift of life you have been given.

We can have a rose petal and water ceremony at the beginning of the ceremony. Towards the end of the ceremony, the baby's little hands and feet are sprinkled with rose water.

We can read a short story in the ceremony for the children present. At the end of the ceremony we can go outside to release eco balloons, white feathers or butterflies.
