Naming Ceremonies on the Central Coast NSW

Certificate of Naming

A Naming Ceremony for a baby or child gives parents the opportunity to give thanks for the safe arrival of their son or daughter and introduces him or her to the family and friends.  It allows parents to publicly express their love and devotion to the child. It is a non religious ceremony which allows the child to choose their own beliefs later in life.

A Naming Ceremony lets parents choose other adults who will take a special interest in the child’s journey through life.  These people may be called Godparents, guardians or special friends.

I have a selection of readings from which to choose as well as many other symbolic and meaningful ceremonies. These include candle lighting, to symbolize the child’s heritage; a wish box with messages to the child from guests and many more unique ideas from which to select. 

If you would like me to perform a naming ceremony, my services will include:

  • An initial no obligation meeting to discuss your requirements.
  • Samples of readings/wording/ceremonies to include
  • Draft ceremony for your approval.
  • Certificates for the child & Godparents.
  • Candles, wish box if required.
  • Presentation copy of ceremony.
  • Use of table/cloths, audio equipment etc for ceremony.
  • Travel to the ceremony.
  • A professional ceremony on the day.
