A child entering your life as a new member of your family is truly a special time. Whether by birth or adoption, this is a time to honour and celebrate such a blessing.
A Baptism, Christening, Child Welcoming or Baby Naming Ceremony is a warm excompassing celebration of the safe arrival of a new life, your precious gift. Non-denominational, interfaith, and secular ceremonies witness and honour the role that parents, siblings, grandparents, godparents, friends and/or extended family will play in this new baby or child’s life, establishing a foundation for a rich and meaningful life. If you want to demonstrate this love for your child in a symbolic ritual, then Lynne Langille can develop and lead an appropriate ceremony to honour your child.
Lynne performs ceremonies which can be non-denominational and recognized by all Christian churches or she can perform spiritual or secular ceremonies without any religious elements.
The ceremony may be held at a location of the parents choosing. In your home, a garden, a hotel, with Godparents or sponsors, family and friends in attendance. A beautiful ceremony in your home surrounded by family and friends is a wonderful experience. Invite family and friends to the ceremony and celebrate the arrival of your precious child together. Ceremonies can be held for children of any age - and adults too! - however, they are held most frequently when the children are two and under.
Our Child Ceremony Fee is usually $300 (unless there's extra travel required) and this includes
Lynne can also perform a ceremony for multiple members of the family at at the same time.She will work with you in a fun and caring manner to create and officiate at your child’s unique celebration as you honour, celebrate and welcome your child into your family. The fee for most of these ceremonies is $300. Contact Lynne at 613-831-7555 or at Lynne@ExceptionalCeremonies.com.

Nous souhaitons vous remercier pour la cérémonie que vous avez présidée, le 21 novembre dernier, célébrant la naissance de notre fille, Oceane Louise. Puisque vous aviez aussi baptisé ses deux frères, Mathias et Phoenix, nous savions que ce serait un moment spécial. Ce le fut, très certainement. Vous avez une approche humaine et conviviale et vous savez vous adapter à chaque situation. C’est tout en votre honneur.Votre personnalité chaleureuse fait en sorte que même les bébés sont en confiance avec vous; nous avons pu le constater à trois reprises.
Nous avons apprécié le temps que vous avez accordé à notre famille dans la préparation de l’événement, lors de la cérémonie et même lors des festivités qui ont suivi. Votre disponibilité est remarquable. Nous savons que les personnes qui feront appel à vos excellents services seront satisfaites.
