Christening Receptions



Organising a Christening can be pretty stressful, especially when you’re trying to look after a new born baby, but they are worth it. Christenings are a special event that bring together your friends and family to celebrate the arrival of your child and welcome them into the world. It is traditional to hold a Christening reception after any service, especially if your guests have travelled a long way.

There’s no set timeframe in which a baby should be christened. Traditionally, it was in the first couple of weeks of their life, but it’s much more common these days to wait until your baby is at least a few months old.
