September 1st 2013 was a big day in Jacob’s life. 80 of his family and friends met in a local hall to celebrate his Naming Day. Jacob’s Nana made a beautiful Afternoon Tea and guests arrived from as far away as the other end of the country. There were friends on hand to organise every guest to fill in the Wish Bunting – “I promise to show Jacob how to change a plug” up to “I promise to take Jacob to the Seychelles”. All the children put their hand prints on the Tree of Life, and this will go into Jacob’s Memory Box with the Bunting for the future.
Jacob’s Mum, Megan wrote:
“We were so pleased to have Sarah as the Celebrant for our son’s Naming Day. Sarah was friendly and professional all the way through, helping us to understand the role of a celebrant, develop our plans for the Naming Day and gave us lots of useful ideas for us to work with. We were able to make the day really personal and just as we wanted.
Sarah was also our Knight in Shining Armour and saved the day when our helium balloons went flat on the morning of the ceremony. Sarah rushed out to buy us some more, even though it was a Sunday, so that we could end the ceremony just as we planned.
