Christenings are one of my favourite events to document and I was so honoured to have been invited to photograph the occasion for this gorgeous one year old and his family.
The man of the moment was so incredibly content throughout the service at beautiful Saint Mark's Church in Reigate, Surrey. Mum had told me beforehand that she was expecting a few complaints, especially when being handed over to the vicar, but there wasn't even a hint of upset from this happy little boy.
The ceremony was followed by a wonderfully relaxed gathering of friends and family at nearby Priory Farm, where although it was a too cold to venture outside, everyone enjoyed a warm fire and a delightful spread of refreshments, including a gorgeous home-made rainbow cake. It was lovely to witness little one's obvious delight with all the love and attention. And when he wasn't entertaining his guests, or tucking into the delicious food, this sunny little chap was quite happy to amuse himself with some much loved books and toys mum had brought along.
Congratulations to this lovely family and I hope they will cherish these precious memories for years to come. Here are a few of my favourites...
