A Wortham Christening, Wortham, Suffolk - 12th June 2011

It's Teagan's Christening at the interesting, if slightly-in-need-of-repair St. Mary's Church, Wortham - deep in the middle of nowhere between Wortham and Diss. Afterwards, there's a garden party, complete with bouncy castle, hog roast and an ice-cream cart.

The original round tower has partially collapsed, so a strange belfry has been stuck to the side
