Baby naming ceremonies


Price: $400

Many parents wish to commemorate the birth of their child with a blessing, thanks giving or naming ceremony rather than a traditional christening. Naming ceremonies do not have any legal status but provide an informal occasion for friends and family to celebrate the birth and naming of your new baby.

What’s included?

  • Our initial interview

  • Two follow-up meetings

  • Unlimited telephone and email consultation

  • Suggestions and resources to help you plan your baby’s special day

  • Writing a personalised ceremony, just for you

  • Rehearsal at your chosen venue

  • PA system with microphone and iPod connectivity

  • A commemorative gift for your baby to commemorate the occasion.

During the ceremony, the parents will pledge their love and commitment to their child. If desired, special people may be chosen as the baby’s mentors or support adults (like godparents) and included as part of the ceremony.

You may like to incorporate readings and music, or ask your guests to sign a wish book for your baby. Perhaps your guests could tie hopes and dreams for the child to helium balloons and release them – the options are endless!

I will travel 100 kms round trip as part of my standard fee and further by negotiation.

When you make your booking, a $150 non-refundable deposit is payable. The remainder of your payment can be done in set instalments – just ask me for more details.

I will work with you to ensure that your baby’s special day is memorable and as easy for your baby as possible.

Please feel free to contact me and discuss what we can do to celebrate this momentous occasion.
