Mariella Baptism

I was privileged to be asked to photograph Mariella's baptism in Margate. 

The little church was beautifully adorned with gold candlesticks, beautiful artwork and lovely tall windows.

Mariella was absolutely brilliant, she was held by her godfather and welcomed into the church. She was then undressed and covered in oil and then dipped in water in the baptismal font. She was dried in a pure white sheet and dressed in a beautiful white dress and bonnet. 

She was so exhausted after the ceremony and photos, she was asleep as she went out the door!
