A naming ceremony is an extraordinary way to welcome a new baby into your family and your community of friends and loved ones. This ceremony is one that not only welcomes your new baby but also identifies him or her with a particular name, reinforces a sense of family unity, and gives your family an opportunity to celebrate your new child’s arrival joyously.
A ceremony designed to allow all family members to participate and offer their own personal welcome is a beautiful and unique way to involve everyone who wishes to welcome the new baby and declare their intention to help guide and support the child through his or her life. The most popular age for a naming ceremony is between newborn and 18 months, but naming ceremonies aren’t just for babies.
This is also an excellent way to welcome stepchildren or adopted children into a family.

You also want a celebrant who is experienced, professional, punctual, attentive, and committed to assisting you, however needed throughout the planning and carrying out of the ceremony. In addition, a celebrant who appreciates the unique nature of your family will be more efficient at helping you create a unique and joyful ceremony that you will remember forever.

Choosing a Celebrant
When choosing naming day celebrants in Melbourne, it’s important to choose one who understands your unique family situation and will work to create a safe environment free from judgment. As a

At Gay Celebrant Melbourne, I strive to provide you with a naming day ceremony that reflects you – who you are, your personality, and your preferences. I’m comfortable with services that are very traditional, those that are lively and resplendent, and everything in between. Naming ceremonies are not the only types of commemorations I can officiate – I also offer vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, funerals, and more.
