Emma and Ian invited me along to be there Cheshire christening photographer at the weekend. They couldn’t have chosen a better day. The sun was shining and the spring air was as mild as can be.
St Vincent’s, Christening in Cheshire
They had chosen St Vincent’s in Altrincham. What a church, light and airy and the sun beaming through the huge windows all along the side of the building.
A few of the guests unfortunately were missing as it was the day of the Manchester Marathon and the route passed very close to the church. Luckily most of them made it to witness little George’s baptism.
The Priest, Canon John Rafferty was very obliging and allowed me to photograph the whole service and it was a beautiful thing to witness. After the two readings, the whole family were invited to gather around the font.
Group photos in the Altrincham sun
After the service we all went outside for the obligatory group shots and to take advantage of the weather and beautiful grounds that the church stood in.
