Little Alfred and his family were now living overseas, so to came down to his grandma to organise his Christening ceremony at Shore School Chapel in North Sydney. Having met us when we were working as Sydney Event Photographers at another Christening, we were given the opportunity to capture this important reunion for the family.
It was a beautiful church with stained glass windows and stepped pews. It was dark, as churches often are, which often leads to dark faces and blurry photos. It wasn’t a problem for us, as we brought in professional lighting for this purpose.
The ceremony was held by Rev Dr Nick Foord, who was also of Shore School. Friends and family were excited to meet with Little Alfred, his brother, and his parents after such a long time. They had been overseas for almost a year for work, and came back to Sydney especially for this Christening.
After the ceremony, we went back across the harbour to the Royal Sydney Golf Club in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs where the Main Lounge was booked out for the hundred guests. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the grassy area outside was perfect for reunions with friends who couldn’t make the ceremony.
There were beautiful canapes, people catching up, and beautiful views across the park. We captured memories with godparents and family friends. Afterwards we created a custom mobile app for them all to share and enjoy.
