Maria’s christening video
It was a pleasure to be asked to film Maria’s christening video, which was at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Liverpool. I have filmed a christening there before and it’s always nice to go back to such a beautiful church.
There are so many great traditions and rituals that go into a Greek christening. There’s always so much going on and lots to film. Maria had a gorgeous box with her name on it that was filled with items to be used during the ceremony. It’s traditional for the godparents to dress the baby in the white christening clothes. Maria cried most of the way through the ceremony but she stopped as soon as she was held by her mum.
MacDonald Craxton Wood – christening video
After the ceremony, all of the guests went to the MacDonald Craxton Wood for the rest of the celebrations. I filmed all of the details including the lovely table decorations, the amazing cake and donut wall for the christening video.
There was a Disney theme with lots of balloons with Disney princesses in them including Snow White, Belle and Cinderella. The children at the christening loved all of this.
The christening cake was a magical castle too with lots of pink and yellow iced flowers. It was decorated with Disney princess figures. There was so much thought that went into all of the decorations.
Watch the christening video highlights
You can watch the highlights of the christening video below. All of the christening videography packages include the full edit of the day as well as a highlights video that can be shared online.
There was also a magician at the christening who was fantastic. He kept the children (and the adults) entertained well into the evening. You can watch a little snippet of his magic tricks below.
