We had the pleasure of filming and photographing another beautiful Greek Baptism at the Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Cyril and Methodius in Nottingham. The Christening service started with a blessing from the priest and then the baby is undressed, anointed with oil and baptised. Little Andreas was laughing and splashing in the water, he only cried when they took him out! The baby is then dressed in their Christening outfit which is all laid out beautifully ready for this part of the ceremony. Whilst the baby is being dressed the priest cuts a small piece of the baby’s hair and says another blessing. The ceremonial christening candles are lit and the Godparents walk around the font three times holding the candle whilst the bible is read. The ceremony ends with the babies first communion. The ceremony was followed by a party at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham with lots of Greek dancing. Here are a few of my favourite Christening photos, enjoy!!.
