Your wedding day is a time for you to celebrate surrounded by the most important people in your life. These memories must be preserved. Your official photographer will capture moments that are special to you. Here are a few wedding photo staging ideas that can be taken at Le Windsor or nearby.
Boys and Girls of Honour
As one of Montreal’s heritage sites, Le Windsor boasts a few hidden treasures. For example, did you know that the NHL was formed here, at Le Windsor, in 1917? You can pose with your wedding party near the plaque mounted in 1917.
You can also have your photos taken in one of our Renaissance- or Victorian-inspired rooms, or under the gorgeous chandeliers in the magnificent Peacock Alley, which has welcomed numerous celebrities and historical figures, including the Queen of England, Elizabeth II. Gather with your closest friends in this romantic and prestigious location for a photograph reminiscent of the grandest balls of all time.
The Wedding Procession
Don’t forget one of the most important photos of all: the wedding procession! In the winter, you can gather everyone around our magnificent marble fireplace. In the summer, you can assemble at Dorchester Square, which was built in 1872 and is another one of Montreal’s historic sites.
And you mustn’t forget one of the most important photos of all: the group photo. Pose on the steps of Le Windsor or simply in one of our magnificent ballrooms in a Victorian-style or French Renaissance setting.
Details on the Event
And of course, it is important to keep a souvenir of the small details before, during, and after the wedding that will enhance and give substance to your wedding album: the invitations, the rings, the shoes, the makeup, the bride’s hairstyle, the dishes, the first dance, the bride dancing with friends, the bouquets, the decorations, the gifts, the greetings, the kiss, and the exchanged glances between newlyweds.
Choosing the perfect photographer for your wedding is a big decision, one that is as important as the colour scheme and the reception hall. Take the time to learn about the photographer’s style, experience, and approach, and to look at their portfolio to find the photographer best suited to you. The team at The Windsor can help you with this decision, and we can recommend a few photographers who have experience working with Le Windsor Ballrooms:
