Orthodox christening

Given our appreciation of the picturesque setting, we were delighted to provide our services for Baby Leonidas. What a joy this little fellow was! From the moment he rocked up in his high tops and hat, toddling around confidently with a friendly smile, we knew this event was going to be an absolute pleasure to film. Leonidas loves the camera and, as you can see from this clip, the feeling is mutual!

The christening took place shortly after See more…

Baby Victoria was full of smiles for her christening at St Sophia Greek orthodox cathedral in Bayswater. This Greek orthodox church at the heart of the Greek community in West London is a favourite place for its magnificently decorated interiors and beautiful gardens. Everything we need is in one location and, as anyone who works with children knows, keeping it simple and stress-free is the key to beautiful christening pictures. See more…

The setting for Alexandros’ christening was St Sophia’s orthodox cathedral in Bayswater, London. We are grateful to have worked in several orthodox christenings and weddings here, yet we are always struck anew by its peaceful atmosphere. You don’t have to be religious to appreciate its beauty, light, and perfect proportions.

Since its consecration in 1882 St Sophia’s cathedral has been the beating heart of the Greek orthodox community in London. While the domed roof suggests something special from outside, See more…

While we often capture other type of baptisms, a Ukrainian Christening is less “typical” for us, and it was a real treat to be asked to record the event, especially with a family so warm and lovely as this one. See more…

Christening is one of the most major mysteries in the Orthodox Christian Church and it makes a great opportunity for the child’s family to gather and celebrate together the entrance of the child to the body of the church. For this reason, the value of beautiful, high-quality shots is great as these will be kept as a milestone of the child’s greatest moments for the years to come.

As professionals with many years of experience in events and celebrations, we were delighted to be hired for the shooting of Sean Evangelos Toma’s baptism. The ceremony took place at the Greek cathedral of the Holy Cross See more…

We had the pleasure to shoot this wonderful Greek-Cypriot christening in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire. This beautiful family chose the church of Twelve Apostles in Hatfield to baptise their lovable son Stefano. Below are some examples of the images we took, as well as a video clip with the highlights of the celebration. We always enjoy shooting christenings, as they have so much warmth and wonderful displays of emotion throughout, with small details that can be picked up so wonderfully through a camera. The setting was absolutely beautiful and a location we would recommend for fellow Greeks wanting a baptism for their children. The orthodox chapel of Twelve Apostles is one of the loveliest Greek churches in the country. Stefano was a wonderful baby, who was so well behaved and displayed such gorgeous emotion. May his baptism be just the start of a life filled with happiness.

Three years prior to this day I was grateful to have been there to capture Stella and Theodoro’s first child’s christening and I was delighted to be a part of their second child’s christening as well. The baptism of little Eleftheria held at Saint Nicholaos (or St Nicholas, or St Nikolaos), the orthodox church of the Greek community in Luxembourg. See more…

St Mary’s Greek cathedral in Wood Green is a place with which we are very familiar as we have worked there many times. It is a lovely church with a warm, welcoming feeling and we were delighted to be asked to capture the christening of Alexander Daniel. See more…

A baby’s christening or baptism is one of the most significant early moments in their life. Baptism filming gives you a documentary record of every precious moment of this momentous day to cherish forever. In christenings not only are you celebrating their place in your family, the religious sacrament commemorates their acceptance into the church.

We were very happy to capture Leonidas’ baptism at St Nectarios church in Battersea London, where Father Christodoulos officiated. Leonidas was an angel throughout the service, happily being held by his Godparents as they committed to their role in his life while his parents watched proudly. Even being undressed and immersed in the font did not upset him – I suspect this little lion loves bath time! See more…

Elsie’s christening was a pleasure to capture at the Greek cathedral of the Divine Wisdom, known as Saint Sophia church in Bayswater, which I believe is also one of the most impressive churches in London and a world-class orthodox cathedral.

Elsie was a gorgeous little girl and we loved capturing the special moments of her day, with her lovely family. The cathedral  in Bayswater was full of spectacular detail and made a fantastic back drop inside and out for all shots. We particularly liked zoning in on Elsie’s expressions throughout the baptism ceremony, so sweet and unaware of what was about to happen. We also loved capturing the expressions of her parents interacting with her, the tiny details like her bracelet being held and little feet.

The sun shone, and puffy white clouds drifted lazily across a blue sky when Vasilis was received into the christian faith at St George Greek church in Kingston, London. Unassuming from the outside yet wonderfully decorated with gilded iconography and a stunning azure blue ceiling within, it is a place where you can arrange a christening into a lovely atmosphere.  See more…

We were quite excited when Aspa phoned us to book our services for her daughter’s Greek christening.

Every time we have the opportunity to capture a Greek christening, we begin with the family shots and prized portraits of baby and family. These have to be done before the ceremony gets underway. Post ceremony usually means the baby is tired and cranky with oily hair and wanting to rest which gives us little time for the quantity of shots that we’d like to have. We especially love capturing emotional christening shots of baby with mother as well as godparents. Guest’s faces tend to bring out the best expressions at the moment the baby is bathed in the blessed water when the professional always have his finger ready on the trigger. Other subjects for great pictures are the close ups of decorations, baby portraits using the light from the candles, the incense burning and all the filigree details in the church.

Baptism ceremonies are beautiful with no shortage of captivating objects to be captured. See more…

Although there are tears at a wedding, they’re usually the happy sort. Orthodox christenings, however, are another story! Baby Alex’s big day started with sunshine and smiles, but his mood swiftly deteriorated when his two Godmothers prepared him for a chilly dip in the font. There was no need to worry though, as Alex was in good hands with Father Damianos. The priest is something of a St Katherine Barnet Christening baby whisperer, respecting that babies can feel scared in the unfamiliar setting, and calming them with his gentle demeanour. It wasn’t long before Alex was smiling again.

A Christening at St Katherine Greek church at Barnet is a joyous occasion. See more…

We really loved capturing these moments of Aristotelis Wo’s baptism. There was an ambience of blue throughout the entire portraiture, which not only represent a ‘boy’ but also such wonderful qualities, like strength and stability. Everything was beautifully and tastefully done, including the keepsakes and little clothing for Aristotelis Wo, all tied with blue ribbon, carrying an almost nautical theme. Lovely settings like the deep blue leather sofa, made for wonderful photos with all of the children together. He was a very good boy to photograph and his personality can be shown through the imagery.
