We first met Marley’s Mum and Dad in 2011 & we photographed their wedding in Liverpool at the Hard Days Night Hotel in 2012. Sarah is from Liverpool, Matty is from Sunderland so its only fair that the Christening should be in Sunderland, if their Wedding was in Livepool! . Matty and Sarah just do not do traditional, thats what makes their personalities so infectious.. So when Marley’s grand parents contacted us to say the Christening was at the Stadium of Light football ground, we were’nt too surprised. For Jeff and Jayne this was like planning a wedding all over again. The service most definitely wasn’t serious and ArchBishop Jonathan Blake was most definitely the right person. Cuddles toys, pot of gold, a rainbow that filled the room and lots of interaction with all the children made Marley’s day so relaxed and certainly very different to any other christening we have documented before. Matty & Sarah are two of the kindest, yet wildest people we know, followed closely behind by Jeff, Jayne and Mandy,so, we just had to visit the touchline and changing room for some “different” kind of pictures, armed with football scarves of the various different football clubs they support – wonder who Marley will grow up to support? here is Marley’s story.
