Henry's Naming Ceremony
We arrived at the venue to find this one and only instruction, somewhere in this wood, the ceremony was being held! Ten or fifteen minutes later we found the site, in the dappled shade of an old beech tree. Beautiful!
In this picture you see the parents making a vow to Henry, after which we all made an offering by way of a small flower and our public or private blessing to him.
All said, I think that this was the nicest and most sincere 'Naming/Christening' ceremony I have been to. Thanks to Lucy and Ian for the invitation, we will never forget this wonderful day.
Oh yes. And Granny looked happy too!!
