Christening Venues Hire Guide

Your child’s baptism or christening is such a special occasion and the reception should represent your family’s values. Being a parent is a full-time job! Allow Tagvenue to make this first milestone of your child’s life as stress-free as possible by filtering through our list of christening function venues in Sydney. Below are our tips and tricks for christening function planning.

  • It’s a family affair! A christening venue needs to accommodate your guest list. Do you have a lot of kids coming to the christening? Make sure your venue of choice is child-friendly. Nothing worse than fine-dining with kids and disturbing other guests - as you know, this isn’t an easy experience! On the other end of the spectrum, be sure to think of grandparents and great-grandparents. Is the venue accessible for them? Are the bathrooms nearby? Is there wheelchair access? These are all things to keep in mind when inquiring about booking a christening reception venue.
  • What will be comfortable for you and the baby? When planning an event, you often get so involved in catering for guests that you forget about what YOU are going to need on the day. Be sure to ask the venue about facilities that cater to parents with small children, even if it’s only for yourself. Have they got diaper-changing facilities? A quiet room for when your baby (and perhaps even yourself) has had enough of all the family fuss? It’s going to be a busy day, so be prepared!
  • Where would be a good place to hold the christening? Find a venue close to the church. It’s no good having the baptism on one side of Sydney and the reception on the other. Your guests won’t be impressed with spending half the day travelling!

  • Fancy a baptism reception on the water? A cruise in Sydney Harbour is a fantastic option where there are plenty of incredible photo opportunities. The price of a cruise starts at $750 per hour. Keep in mind you’ll still need to budget for catering over and above this hourly rate. Catering is typically priced per person.

  • Minimum spend venue hire is another cost-effective option to consider, especially for large receptions. You can budget about a $2000 minimum spend. This should be easily covered by guests through food and drinks. (All data from Tagvenue.)

Which area of Sydney is the best to hire a christening venue?

Need inspiration? Some of the most popular spaces for christenings in Sydney include:

  • Sydney Harbour. A cruise in the harbour is a fantastic way to spend this memorable occasion with your family. Make sure to check with the boat about child safety onboard.
  • Inner West Sydney. Our favourite part of Inner West Sydney is Leichhardt. If you’re looking for some Italian charm, you’ll find it here.
  • Eastern Suburbs. Paddington, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills are some of our top recommendations. These suburbs have many options to choose from. With so much variety on offer, you’ll be sure to find a suitable venue in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

How can I save money on a christening venue in Sydney?

On a tight budget and wondering how you can cut the costs? A christening function doesn’t need to break the bank. It’s a time to celebrate with family, not put yourself into debt. Here are our savvy tips for maximising your budget:

  • Go for smaller bites. Instead of catering for a full sit-down meal, why not plan a morning or afternoon tea? Most christening venues in Sydney also offer a cocktail or finger food menu.
  • Ditch the decorations. Although decorations add a festive touch, they really aren’t necessary. Look for a venue with tasteful decor which requires little or no decorations.
  • Recruit the family. If you have talent in the family (photographers, chefs, bakers, florists), use their skills to your advantage.
