Celebrant for Symbolic Naming Ceremonies

If you’re looking for an authorised civil celebrant to help with your baby naming or change of name ceremony in the Mornington Peninsula area, you’ve come to the perfect place!


Individualised Naming Ceremonies

There is no question that names are an important part of our identities. The names we are given—as well as the names we may choose for ourselves—are a fundamental part of how we express who we are to ourselves and to others.

Baby namings and change of name ceremonies are deeply personal experiences, but they are also public celebrations of identity. As a celebrant, I take great joy in being part of naming celebrations. As with the funeral and wedding services that I offer, I am honoured to be chosen to help officiate naming services, and I am open to a range of requests to help you personalise my services to match your vision for the event.

From small and intimate private family ceremonies to large gatherings that officially welcome a new baby into the world, I can help you with naming events of any size or theme.

Cost-Effective Ceremonies in the Mornington Peninsula

I want all of my services to be accessible and reasonably priced, and for that reason, I offer all of my celebrant services at a highly affordable, competitively-priced rate. My standard fee for naming ceremonies is AU$300 + GST. Typically, this includes:

Initial meeting with the parents or guardians of the baby (or, in the case of name change ceremonies, the individual who wants to celebrate a new name). This meeting usually lasts for approximately 1 hour, but I am also flexible to communicate with you via phone, email and/or Skype if you have any other questions or logistics you would like to discuss.

Attendance at the ceremony itself. Depending on what type of ceremony you would like to have and what you want to include, I can help deliver the naming ritual and participate in other services, at your request.

The descriptions above are for my standard naming ceremony package, but please keep in mind that these are guidelines, not rules! If you have other specific requests or would like to customise my baby naming or change of name services to suit your circumstances, please feel free to contact me to discuss what you have in mind and I will be happy to work with you to find out how I can accommodate your requests.
