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 so many children Australia wide offering a range of ceremony types including a choice of certificates for your child & Godparents / guardians.  We welcome that bundle of joy into the loving embrace of your family & friends as it's a celebration of them and the special gift they are to you.  I also provide you with a beautiful keepsake copy of the personalised ceremony.  Namings or namegivings can be combined with their birthday or your wedding celebrations 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 being a Grandmother, I know 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 one with petals.  You're only limited by your imagination for your child and what suits them and their personality.  As a celebrant for over 17 years, I'm so lucky to continue sharing in a family's story in officiating their child's naming and then being asked to officiate their marriage as is the case in the photos below or the other way 'round - either way, it's pretty darned special!

Pricing for baby namings held on the Gold Coast, including Tamborine Mountain, start at $250, so contact me for the packages & inclusions. If you'd like to combine your baby's naming with your wedding ceremony, pricing is on application. I do travel extensively, so there may be extra travel costs involved, including ceremonies held on South Stradbroke Island.  So far the furthest I've travelled has been to Tasmania for a double baby naming for two little brothers enjoying joint celebrations, NSW 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! 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 and officiated at their second daughter's naming ceremony in May 2021 (see photo below).
