Baby Isla Mae Marsey had a lot resting on her tiny shoulders as she upheld a family tradition of more than a hundred years.
The eight-month-old delighted well-wishers in Shotton Colliery’s St Saviour’s Church when she wore a Christening gown passed down through the generations.
The day was extra special as the youngster’s dad Dean Marsey, 26, was baptised alongside his daughter during Sunday’s service.
Grandad Peter Watson, 51, a maintenance engineer, said: “The gown has been passed down the generations. It was specially made in 1903 for my grandad Thomas Dand.”
Proud mum Tammy Watson, 19, said: “It’s been really special with them both being christened today.”
