Our latest blog entry is about a gorgeous christening that took place at the end of May. The christening was held at Ayia Varvara church, a quaint and very traditional little church. The little boy being christened was Andreas, a handsome boy with big brown eyes and curly hair.
The christening was hosted by Andreas’ parents, E and S, who contacted me before the event seeking beautiful baptism photography in Cyprus. I was more than happy to be present at this stunning christening and take pictures of Andreas on his special day.
Shooting Beautiful Baptism Photography in Cyprus
The church was filled with adoring family and friends who watched over as little Andreas was christened under God’s loving gaze.
As the priest conducted the service Andreas remained quiet and curious, looking around at the lights, icons and other adornments that embellished the church.
His parents watched on with pride as Andreas was blessed, bathed in the holy water and lathered with holy oil. As the priest carried out the traditional service Andreas seemed to be enjoying himself throughout, remaining calm and quiet. This enabled me to capture some truly beautiful baptism photography in Cyprus.
Once he was bathed he was then dressed in his new outfit by his new Godfather. Andreas looked very handsome in a white suit, blue tie and matching shoes. Finally, he was given some holy communion to conclude the service.
After the service all family and friends were invited to a nearby venue for dinner, where the celebrations of Andreas’ christening continued. The venue was so beautifully decorated with a sea-based theme including starfish, shells, boats and lighthouses. Each of the guests present received a little gift as a memory of this very important day.
Each and every photo shoot I attend is a unique experience to capture new people through the lens of my camera. Photographing this beautiful baptism photography in Cyprus was a truly wonderful experience. We hope you enjoy these gorgeous pictures from the day.
