Last weekend around about 30 friends and family were invited to attend Madeleine's christening at the Sacred Heart Church at Freshwater. The christening was to be at 8.30am followed by brunch along the waterfront at Trinity Inlet. Things didn't go quite to plan and we ended up having brunch before the christening that was eventually at 11.00am.
Madeleine's parents did a fantastic job of setting up a beautiful area for the brunch party. We brunched on bacon, sausage and egg rolls accompanied by an assortment of tasty Hor D'Oeuvres. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the "Cupcake" christening cake was a highlight.
The christening itself was special for Madeleine's mum and dad as this was also the church they were married in just a few short years ago. Madeleine never uttered a sound as the blessed water was poured over her little head but I think she was well and truly worn out by that stage from all the celebrations.
