Maria and Tommy may look familiar. It could be that you’ve seen them perform somewhere (Maria is starring as the lead in The Wedding Singer at her local theatre soon!!!!) or you may recognise them from one of my previous wedding videos…or maybe they’ve kindly shared this and you actually know them. Lucky you!

This time they have a very special little person starring alongside them in his very own movie. His name is Archie and this video is all about his Christening day (and he’s ADORABLE don’t you think?).

Maria and Tommy contacted me after spotting me share another Christening on my Instagram and Facebook page, weirdly another bride and groom of mine who had gone on to start a family and celebrate with a Christening too.

Thankfully I was free, I got it booked in the diary and then excitedly waited for emails with updates on their plans.

I don’t know about you but when you’ve got an event planned that involves all your amazing family and friends and it’s more than just the ‘ceremony’ part that you want to relive, whether it’s as long as a church ceremony or as short as a naming ceremony!

What about those exciting moments getting ready together as a family? Those moments of quiet before all the family pounce?

Or if it’s like our Christening morning those final minutes of chaos because the nap went longer than expected haha

Maria and Tommy made the morning look stress free and enjoyed lots of cuddles and cooing over little Archie before we headed over to St Paul of the Cross Church in Burtonwood.

There’s more about their day below but if you’re too excited and want to see the video NOW click below and enjoy…

After a slight delay due to a very laid back (but lovely) priest the service was underway and Archie took it all in, even enjoying getting his head a little wet!

Everyone soon made their way over to Alder Root Golf Club to enjoy the buffet Maria had put on (and everyone helped out setting up), the queue was HUGE and everyone got to admire the amazing Lion King themed cake as they picked up their nibbles (made by the same person who made their wedding cake too!).

This was the perfect opportunity to capture everyone catching up and enjoying themselves.

Then once Archie had enjoyed his little nap in the carrier he was soon getting passed around so everyone could have a squeeze and compete to see who could get the biggest smile 😀

Thank you Maria and Tommy for thinking of me when it came to capturing Archie’s special day, it really was a pleasure and an honour xx
