These ceremonies are an alternative rite of passage to a christening or baptism and are growing in popularity. The ceremony is usually held in the comfort of your own home, in a park setting or venue of your choice.

Your child receives an A4 parchment certificate with the option for your guests’ signatures on the back as a memento of the day. You have the option of having Guardians, Mentors or Godparents.

A Name Giving Ceremony has long been the rite which society has used to welcome a child into the family, to the wider family of their relatives, and to the community of their friends.

Today, Civil Celebrants provide families with a wonderful opportunity to officially welcome their child into a loving circle of family and friends. Preparing a carefully worded ceremony often deepens relationships within families, and the parents and godparents, or mentors, become more aware of their responsibilities and connection to your family.

A Name Giving Ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to culturally express joy, hope and acceptance, and a chance to express these feelings in poetry and words of commitment. This can also be symbolized by lighting of candles, planting and dedicating a tree, releasing of balloons or reading special verses.

TOTAL FEE $500 – fully payable upon booking
