Gold Coast Baby Namings

There's only one thing I love as much as a wedding - and that's a baby naming!

I've performed namings for children from birth through to teenagers offering a range of ceremony types including a choice of certificates for your child & Godparents / guardians.  We welcome your child into the loving embrace of your family & friends and is a celebration of them and the special gift they are to you.  I also provide you with a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony.  Namings or baby namegivings can be combined with a birthday or your wedding and are similar to a christening with or without the religious elements, the choice is yours.

Having previously worked with children in Preschool & Year 1, I love interacting with the little people who share our world and having become a Grandmother, it's such a special time to celebrate the joy babies bring to everyone.  Naming ceremonies can include a tree planting, wishing stones, time capsule / treasure chest, money tree, candle lighting, a butterfly release or showering your little bundle of joy with petals.  You're only limited by your imagination for your child's celebrations.  As a celebrant for over 16 years, I'm so lucky to continue sharing in a couples' life in officiating their child's naming or meeting for the baby's naming ceremony and then being asked to officiate their marriage as is the case in the photos below - either way, it's pretty darned special!

Pricing for baby namings held on the Gold Coast start at $250, so contact me for the packages & inclusions. If you'd like to combine your baby's naming with your wedding ceremony or 1st birthday, this can also be arranged. I do travel extensively, so there may be extra travel costs involved, including ceremonies held on South Stradbroke Island.  The furthest I've travelled has been to Tasmania for a double baby naming for two little brothers enjoying joint celebrations and Toowoomba.

'Hi Liz, Thank you so much for the conducting Willow's ceremony. It was so nice and we had so many people comment on how good the ceremony was. We all had such a lovely day & couldn't of been more happier with how it turned out. Thank you for those photos! I was so disappointed I didn't get a photo of all the set up especially the dessert table, so they are great. Thank you again,

Warmest regards, Brendan, Jess and Willow xx (photo below right)  I've since married the couple in a beautiful intimate ceremony at North Stradbroke Island.
