The perfect montreal wedding venue
As a Montreal Wedding Photographer, this 200 year old charming wedding venue is a dream! Located in Hudson, Quebec, the Auberge Willow Inn is a 30 minute drive from Montreal, making it very easily accessible and leaving you with the feeling that you are much further away from the chaos of the city! The Inn is described best on their website as "an intimate space that combines rural beauty with country elegance.” The inn has incredible views of the Lake of Two Mountains, creating such a dreamy backdrop for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception!

The Willow Inn is here to make your day flawless, thanks to their incredible, certified wedding planner Julie Leadbeater. They have their very own chef who will be their to cater your big day. The bar is also taken care of on site, leaving you with one less thing to have to plan on your own!
There are several event spaces to choose from, leaving you with lots of options in terms of guest count, indoor/outdoor cocktail hour and reception, etc. Below I have included some of the best photos from a wedding I photographed at this venue this past summer, which will help you envision what your wedding day can look like at this charming venue!

Getting ready at this wedding venue
At this particular wedding, the additional cottage was used for the groom and all of his friends and family to get ready at! It was very spacious with ample natural light, creating the perfect atmosphere for wedding photos!
THE GASTROPUB AT AUBERGE WILLOW INN
After taking the groom's getting ready photos, we stopped at the pub for some fun photos with his groomsmen!
Bride getting ready
Next up, we captured the beautiful bride getting ready at the Inn. It truly felt like the rooms were designed to be photographed with all of the unique touches and natural light!!
The ceremony at Auberge Willow Inn had the lake as a backdrop and was incredible elegant and romantic. The aisle was lined with white roses, mixed with perfect blue skies, temperature and such a special love to celebrate!
The food, drinks and vibes were amazing! The cocktail hour took place outside, on the lake. There was a tent set up and lots of seating options.
Bride and groom Portraits
There are SO many different spots to take your couple photos at! Both the lake and the Inn itself were my favourite locations for the wedding portraits just as the sun was setting behind the venue.
the wedding reception
Let me tell you, Auberge Willow Inn knows how to throw a freaking party!! From the bride and groom's entrance all the way to the dinner, speeches and first dance, everything ran so smoothly and just hit the spot! The food was delicious and the energy was incredible! Here are a few photos of the reception including the details, first dances and the croquembouche (au lieu of a wedding cake)!
