Over the last decade, I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings ranging from huge events with over 500 guests all the way down to elopements with zero guests. I love them all for different reasons but I find myself more drawn to the smaller, more intimate weddings. For some reason, they often have a more genuine feel to them as they’re not over-the-top or extravagant but are always focused more on family and very close friends.
Kelly & Juan’s wedding at Château Ramezay in the Old Port of Montreal was one of the smallest weddings I’ve shot. Just 8 guests, including the couple’s gorgeous three daughters. An outdoor ceremony, a few glasses of champagne and then onto a restaurant to celebrate with a fantastic meal.
As a wedding venue, it is quite stunning with great locations for photos everywhere you look. MTL Wedding Blog named it as one of Quebec’s most unique wedding venues and I included it in my favourite locations for an outdoor wedding in Montreal.

Below are just a selection of my favourite photos from this lovely little wedding. Huge congrats and thanks to Kelly & Juan for having me there to capture the day for them.
Two years later I was lucky enough to meet up with them again in Mexico when Kelly’s brother Rob married Melissa at the Royalton Riviera resort near Cancun. That was a fantastic wedding too. You can see their wedding photos from Mexico HERE!
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.
