First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes along the babies carriage…marking the arrival of a new born can be a bit of unknown territory if you are not particularly religious. That was certainly the case for the parents of a dear little boy who we “officially” named on Sunday at age 3. So we created a personal, casual and family focussed ceremony included the naming of guardians, a sand pouring ceremony reflecting colours chosen by each member of the family that linked their connection to past travels and a name meaning lake near a meadow along with a presentation of a wish for his future in the form of letters. It was smiles all round ! I just wish I could be a fly on the wall in 13 years when at age 16 he opens his superman cuff links and his personal letters from his parents and guardians!!
