You may or may not remember I recently blogged a wedding at the William Gray Hotel in Old Montreal. It was a fantastic wedding but unusual in that it was on a Monday and was all done and dusted by 6pm.
Francesca & Mike’s wedding was also at the same venue but different in many ways. Theirs was a Saturday (actually my wife, Evelyne’s birthday!) and at 6pm things were only just warming up! This was an epic all-night party with plenty of craziness and freaky dancing from their friends and family. Just how we like it!
Their wedding ceremony was also held in a different room at the William Gray. One similarity was the tricky lighting during the ceremony due to the backlight coming from the windows behind where the couple were stood. It felt like a short ceremony but that meant plenty of time to have fun with their guests and make the most of the day.
There were some hilarious games that everyone got involved with and some great speeches followed by a couple of genuinely emotional dances with their parents.
But ultimately, this wedding was all about having fun with all their favourite people on the planet. And, as you’ll see, these people know how to have a great time!
Great to have the fantastic Tim Chin along for this one too.

Hotel William Gray is a decidedly distinct Old Montreal hotel that embodies artful design and a spirit of welcoming conviviality, with staff dedicated to providing an elevated guest experience.
The Hôtel William Gray is located in the heart of Old Montreal, the oldest and most lively district of the city. With its contrast between history and modernity, it is a fantastic place to stay.
There are many must-sees in Old Montreal and the architecture is unique and magnificent. Explore historic buildings such as the Notre-Dame Basilica or the Bonsecours Market and learn about the city and the country’s past through quality museums such as the Pointe-à-Callière Museum.
Pass through Place Jacques Cartier near the hotel for a lively atmosphere in the heart of the neighbourhood. Also, make sure to walk by the Clock Tower, you can even lounge on the beautiful beach next to it.
Then, take a walk on Rue Saint-Paul and feel the lively and historic artery that will make you go back in time.
