The christening or baptism of a baby or child stems from the Christian religious practise of immersing oneself in water to wash away sins (The Greek word ‘baptizo’ literally means to immerse, plunge, dip, or bury in water) and in later years the ceremony became associated with the taking of a name to symbolize new life.
Adults may choose to be baptised later in life but whatever the age of the participant, the naming ceremony whether religious or otherwise is usually followed by a family celebration.
More about Christenings & Baptism & how to organise a christening.
Regardless of the size of your christening or naming-ceremony, musical accompaniment will both enhance the atmosphere and entertain your guests throughout the day.
Classical music such as string quartets, harpists or singers are popular choices for the ceremony, with jazz bands, swing bands & pianists proving good choices for the drinks reception afterwards.
Many Christenings now also run on into the night with a live party band or DJ.
If you will have a good number of children attending then it pays to hire entertainers to keep them occupied. Check out our great childrens entertainers, magicians & street entertainers. Also think about face paints & fancy dress costumes which are always a great way to keep them entertained.
Our entertainment coordinators will advise as to the perfect choice for your event and ensure hassle-free service from the booking stage right up to the performance and afterwards.
