Free Baby Naming Ceremony!

Are you interested in having a free Baby Naming Ceremony performed for your infant (less than 1 year old)?

In case you don’t know (I didn’t really at first), a baby naming ceremony is like a secular (or spiritual, depending on your beliefs) version of a baptism.

Your European Wedding Celebrant currently conducts symbolic wedding ceremonies all over Portugal and Europe and has been for the past 4 years. We are now looking to bring Baby Naming Ceremonies to Portugal as well.

You (the parents) would have full control over the ceremony. My team and I would be there to learn about your family, find out if you would like to make promises (vows) to your baby, if would you like to name guardians (secular god parents) and generally be there to guide you through the different options available to you.

Our founder, Carly Petracco, would then be there to perform the ceremony on the day – we are aiming for a weekend in March or April. Carly is American, but can also do your ceremony in English & Portuguese ceremony if you’d like.

In the future we will most likely charge between €300 and €400 for this service, but we are looking for a lovely family that would be willing to work with us for free. The only thing that we ask is that you invite others so it is a bit of party/celebration and that we be allowed to take pictures and video and use them for promotional purposes.

If you are interested please us at Thank you for considering!
