Naming Days

An official


Surround your child
with warmth & love

A Naming Day is a special ceremony that celebrates your precious child and formally welcomes them into the world.

Naming Days are a modern-day alternative to a christening or baptism. Ceremonies tend
to be non-religious, but they can be tailored to accommodate different faiths, cultures and beliefs.


In a warm and welcoming ceremony family and friends are reminded of the joys and responsibilities of raising a child. Mentors or godparents are often appointed and may offer promises or blessings for your child. Ceremonies are often held during a child's first year of life or on their first birthday.

​Modern Sydney celebrant Laura Craddock designs Naming Days specifically with babies and children in mind. Her aim is to create happy, relaxed and highly personalised occasions for the whole family to enjoy. Relax and enjoy your child's special day, knowing the Naming ceremony will run smoothly and professionally.

Laura was excellent! She let the ceremony breathe and flow naturally around the laughter of the guests and noise from the toddlers present... Highly recommended!
