Julian’s Christening

May 2013

Little Julian was christened as into the Greek Orthodox church on the 12th of May 2013. I don’t think anyone, let alone innocent Julian, knew what they were in for when the service started. It was an incredibly long process, but each step and stage had it’s importance and meaning, and it was impressive to witness the reverence with which the priest and the participants carried this ceremony out.

After many tears and confusion from poor Jules at being dunked in oil and water and dressed up from top to toe in a white suit with booties and a little white hat, there was eventually mirth when lunch was served and we managed to get some smiley shots outside afterwards.

He’s going to be a lady killer, I’m sure of that.
