Naming Ceremonies - Stuart Atherton Celebrant available for Weddings, Funerals, Vow Renewals, Naming Ceremonies


Welcoming a child into your life


Welcoming a new person into your world is the most wonderful experience. Creating a ceremony unique to you, is for me, equally wonderful. I recognise the honour of you choosing me.

Whether you are welcoming a new baby or adopting a child, as your celebrant, I am here for you. 

Having worked with families from many different communities, I recognise the importance of custom, family traditions and the love that families share. It is so important for me to understand your family dynamic to create the best ceremony. We will work together to create a ceremony that is as unique as your family.


The ceremony can include whatever you feel is important. There are many beautiful readings, poems,  customs and rituals that we can adapt to create a unique ceremony, to be remembered forever.


Gender affirmation naming ceremonies


I have strong links to the LGBTQIA+ community. A naming ceremony for a transgender person should be as unique as you are. I am here to create your ceremony that completes your journey, to your true identity. I endeavour to carry out your ceremony with great dignity, whilst making this, the most special moment for you. 

Together we will think about metamorphosis and all its power, grandeur and awakening to celebrate yours!

You may want an all singing all dancing ceremony, flying the flag high or you may wish to celebrate your transition in a more subtle way. 

There are so many wonderful readings, poems, customs and rituals we can make personal to you.

Together, will make this the most important day of your life.

"The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name"- Confucius
