Christenings and Naming Ceremonies

Are you looking for a tailor-made ceremony that is exactly how you imagined it?

Teresa creates beautiful, bespoke ceremonies with you from the heart. Meeting you in person enables Teresa to gain an emotional connection to your vision. This ensures your very special day is a wonderful experience for all, with memories to treasure forever.
A Naming Ceremony is a very special way to celebrate one of the most precious and wonderful events in life, the gift of a child.
Naming Ceremonies are a natural choice if you have no faith, different faiths within the family or you wish to allow your child to decide their own beliefs as they grow up. You have the freedom to choose, contact Teresa to discuss the choices and options available to you.
Naming Ceremonies are flexible and not just for babies, they can be for any age and are perfect to welcome an adopted or step child. Each family have their own individual needs and like all White Lily Ceremonies it’s your ceremony, your promises, or hopes and dreams for your child and we’ll deliver the event you wish for. Prices start from £250

Georgina Pugh

I create ceremonies that, although not formally religious, often feel like spiritual occasions because they touch hearts. I try to work from the heart, approaching each commission as a fresh opportunity to respect and discover life and to bear witness to it.

My ceremonies are happy, personal occasions and, since every ceremony is written specifically for a particular family, each one is unique. I’m accredited by Humanists UK and work in every part of Yorkshire and The Humber.
