Alba's Christening

We've just returned from a month long holiday in Scotland. During that month we had a hen party, a wedding, a christening and lots of trips out visiting friends and family. It was a busy month but we had lots of fun.

We decided before Alba was born that we wanted to have her christened in Scotland by the same minister who married Matteo and I. Originally the idea was to have the christening in our local church but since it was undergoing repairs the minister suggested doing the christening at my parents' house, just like our wedding two years ago. The weather wasn't warm enough to have the service outside this time but we had it in the living room which looks out at the same view we had during our wedding ceremony. It was perfect, such an intimate event with just our family and close friends around. Afterwards we enjoyed an afternoon tea with cream scones, cup cakes and meringues. 

Our wedding photographer, Craig McBeth, very kindly agreed to come and photograph the event and we got some lovely shots of the star of the show. 





Now that we're home again and getting back into some sort of routine I'm planning to get back into blogging again. I've got so much I want to share, most excitingly the progress of our home renovation! It wall all depend though on how much spare time a certain little madam will allow me!! 

Lots of love to you all

Lovely update. My little girl was christened back in Wales in the little chapel where we were married. The photos are just beautiful especially the last ones - it just radiates happiness.
