To celebrate WorldPride, over one hundred LGBTQ couples gathered at the fairytale-like Casa Loma on Thursday to tie the knot in a mass wedding. Before the ceremony, everyone filtered into the garden, decked out in everything from colourful sundresses to full wedding gowns and top hats. Each couple had a different reason for participating, but most were clear on one thing: the significance of an event like this, and—especially for those who had travelled from less-progressive countries—their good fortune to be in a city that celebrates gay marriage.
