It was a pleasure to be back at The Dormition of the Mother of God and St Andrew Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Birmingham for another Greek Baptism. This Cathedral is magnificent, I love all the beautiful detail and the atmosphere with incense in the air. Baby Marinos was very sweet and smiley. Mum laid out his christening outfit and all his family started to arrive. The ceremony starts with a blessing by the priest and then the baby is undressed and anointed with oil. The baby is baptised in the font and dressed in their Christening outfit. After the ceremony family and friends get together for a meal to celebrate. It was a lovely day and here are some of our favourite photos. Greek Baptism Photography by Beautiful Life.
