Love and marriage equality prevailed at Casa Loma today, June 26th, with more than 115 same-sex international couples tying the knot at the historical location.
Couples from countries in North America, Taiwan, Australia and Ghana are among others whe were able to register and be a part of the Grand Pride Wedding in celebration of the World Pride Festival. This mass wedding was hosted by Liberty Entertainment Group, headed by President and CEO Nick Donato.
The 3PM ceremony will see all the couples getting married at the same time with twelve denominations (such as Judaism, Islam, Humanist, United Church, etc.) integrated into the hour-long nuptials. Couples are then broken off into their tents where they will complete their wedding papers before enjoying the cocktail reception.
The newlyweds only paid for their marriage licenses and were able to enjoy the free wedding and after-party, with musical performances from Toronto-based singer/songwriter Sean Jones and DJ Hanson from Amsterdam, Netherlands.
As you can see from the photos below, the happy couples will have the perfect backdrop to become happy newlyweds. We’ll try and post some photos from the event soon. For more information on the event, please click here.
