The six most spectacular locations for wedding photos in Montreal are:
- Old Montreal
- World Trade Centre
- Atwater Market
- Westmount Park
- Botanical Gardens
- Bois Franc
Old Montreal / Vieux-Montréal
With its old-world grandeur, winding cobblestone streets, and horse-drawn buggies, Old Montreal is the perfect place for wedding photography.
Here are photos of Karyn and Brett’s wedding that shows the gorgeous French gardens behind Chateau Ramezay and Marché Bonsecours with its creamy yellow pillars.
World Trade Centre – Centre de Commerce Mondial
The World Trade Center is the perfect place to go if it rains on your wedding day, as it’s covered. But even if it doesn’t rain, the World Trade Centre is a great location for wedding photos. There’s a giant black marble pool, gas lamps, a stone goddess, even a giant chunk of the Berlin Wall. It’s very, very nice.
Here are photos of David and Dalia’s wedding at the World Trade Centre, starting with David sneaking up behind Dalia for First Look photos.
Atwater Market – Marché Atwater
If you want edgy, urban wedding photography, there’s no better place for photos than the Atwater Market. There’s old brick warehouses, railway tracks and pretty views of the Lachine Canal.
Here are photos from Karine and Nick’s wedding at the Atwater Market.
Botanical Gardens – Jardin Botanique
Montreal’s Botanical Gardens are a marvellous place for wedding photography. It’s huge though – one of the largest in the world – so you have to know where to go.
My favourite places are:
- The Chinese Garden – the largest of its kind outside Asia
- The massive flower beds near the Pie-IX and Sherbrooke entrance
- The Turkish themed outdoor cafe near the flower beds
- Any of the 30 different exhibition gardens – enter this area next to the cafe
Montreal’s Canadiens’ Carey Price Mural
For true Canadien’s fans, why not have a few wedding photos at the Carey Price mural on the corner of Gilmore and Cabot in Saint Henri? There’s a nice colourful wall just around the corner as well – although I would recommend a few photos in Old Montreal as well, for some beautiful, classic wedding photos.
This wedding started with an emotional First Look photo session at the beginning of the day.
