Evelyn Bea's Christening.

It was a real Christening with William, a Presbyterian minister and a friend of the family, who performed the rites, referencing commitment to Christ and engagement with Him several times in the lovely relaxed and family type home-spun service. We had almost ideal conditions. It rained all morning and all through the previous night and just about time for the celebration it stopped and the sun came out. It was cool enough that we were all quite comfortable. Evie Bea was drenched 3 times with the Holy water and didn't yell or fuss. She was at her best.

The musicians were very good - a quartet who played non stop for 2+ hours ( except we asked them to put a sock in it during the service.)
With Steph in charge of the food you can imagine the extravaganza. We were all hard pressed to attempt a little decorum whilst piling our plates not so high we looked like gourmandise.........There was salmon, quail eggs, tuna tartar, tenderloin, quiche, and all kinds of fruit and veggie dishes. The mimosas with Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin went down well, pun intended.






Here are a few pictures and a few videos of the event.
