Built in 1698, this impressive Co-Cathedral of Saint Anthony of Padua is a masterpiece of Gothic Revival architecture located in Longueuil, Quebec. It took 27 years to build from start to finish. This church is massive. It is 74 meters long (243 ft) and 81 meters high (265 ft)! In our humble opinion, it is one of the most beautiful Catholic churches for wedding ceremonies in Canada.
By the way, this place has a museum, and it's worth checking out. It carries art pieces dating back to the early 17th century.
Instantly struck by its grandeur, our team got creative, and together, we took hundreds of vertical and horizontal shots of the cathedral combining the best ones (or 24 of them to be exact) in post-production. What you don't see on this image is the soaring dome above our heads; it didn't fit our angle. Maybe we can add the dome on our next visit to Longueuil.
Important to note, that the atmospheric lighting we chose for our panorama is not coming from the windows or the dome. A lot of exciting work went into the creation of this photograph, including teamwork, Photoshop elements, and flash techniques.
Most of the pictures that our bride and groom have from this venue are natural, depicting organic colors. Some are moody, but only this one is magical. We printed this image 1.22 x 1.52 meters (48 x 60 inches) in size on metallic Plexiglas for our couple, and the result was epic!
