Background Information and Highlights:

The gorgeous and impressive Brompton Oratory Kensington in central London hosted Henry's baptism ceremony.

The Brompton Oratory is a Catholic church, also known as the London Oratory.

It is such a privelege for professional photographers and videographers to work at. It is hard to think of a more beautiful eraborate interior. The inside of the Brompton Oratory though is particularly dark and challenging for photography and video. Photography is not actually allowed within the Brompton Oratory except to record christenings and weddings and other personal events at the church.

Travel in the area by car is difficult being a central London location. But there is a private car park next to the main building and it is possible to reserve a space by contacting the church staff.

Henry's coverage started at home before we departed for the Brompton Oratory. We were then treated to a lovely party just off exclusive Eaton Square in an interesting old house which was once the home of Noel Coward.

Peter typically shoots some scene-setting photos inside the venue before the start of the christening ceremony:

Photography inside the Brompton Oratory is strongly discouraged. It must be quick and unintrusive to other users of the church, so the shooting conditions for portraits are far from ideal. But it is nice to have a few photos inside posed with the parents and if possible some guests as well:

There are no photography restriction on the steps outside the Brompton Oratory and that can be a good place to shoot some of the essential portraits:

There are some nice gardens belonging to the London Oratory just to the left of the main building which can be good for some outdoor posed group photos, but on this occasion we departed straight away for the reception venue for Henry's party.
