This was my first time shooting a wedding at Auberge du Lac Morency in Saint-Hippolyte and it’s a stunning place to have a ceremony. A perfect little area to exchange vows with the lake as a gorgeous backdrop.
Marie-Eve and Tony only booked me a couple of months before the wedding and their whole day felt like a super-relaxed event with their favourite people. Exactly the way I love weddings to be!
I started the day with the girls in their tiny hotel room at the venue before heading a short distance up the hill to where the boys were.
The ceremony itself was personal and quite emotional, especially when they chose to give rings to their two children to highlight just how special they were to the couple. Maya even sang an Ed Sheeran cover during the reception. Not a dry eye in the house!
Another significant moment came later in the day when Marie-Eve’s step-dad, Darren, who was unable to attend due to illness joined them via Skype. It was clear how much he was missed on the day.
At the end of the day we headed over to Le Cerbere Resto-pub in St. Jerome for more great food. There was a great little park close by, so we managed to get a few photos there before the sun finally set.
Huge thanks to Marie-Eve and Tony for having me along to capture such a lovely day, and to their guests for making me feel so welcome.
Below is a short slideshow of some of my favourite recent wedding photos… Take a look. And turn the speakers up!
I’m a Brit living in Montreal with my wife, Evelyne and our three boys! Evelyne and I met in the Alps in 2003 when Evelyne thought she was a cool snowboarder and I thought I was a superstar DJ. We got married in 2007 in Cornwall, England and moved to Canada in 2014.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and have now shot almost 500 weddings, mostly in Canada & the UK, but I absolutely love travelling anywhere in the world. I enjoyed it when I started but love my job now more than ever.
