Hany Manuel Tadros has accomplished a lot in his life. Born in Cairo, Egypt, Manuel moved to Quebec with his parents when he was ten years old. He has worked as singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, and voice actor.
Manuel's interesting career took off after he sang "Je t'aime, tu sais," on Première chance. He released his first album shortly after. He then turned to writing songs for other artists and shows, such as Cirque de Soleil's Alegria and a french language verison of Chicago.
As an actor, Manuel performed in Romeo et Juliette, de la Haine à l'Amour, a french language musical version of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliette, and did voiceover work in Assassin's Creed.
He is the father of Xavier Dolan, a Quebec film director and actor.
Xavier Dolan-Tadros is a Quebec film maker, actor, and costume designer. His films are autobiographical and serve as a means of telling his story through artistic expression. He has won many awards such as the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes film festival and has received international acclaim, especially for I Killed my Mother (J'ai tué ma mère). He is one of Quebec's most worldly renown film makers.
Xavier was the best man to his father's wedding, alongside his brother Jean-Philippe and Émilie's brother, also named Jean-Philippe.

The wedding took place at Château Ramsay and was a lovely event planned by Maria San Emeterio and her wedding planning company, Une touche de magie. Émilie had her wedding dress made at DREAM IT Yourself and we had to honour of designing Manuel Tadros's wedding suit.
With 7jours, Manuel spoke about some of the challenges he and Émilie faced when planning a wedding during a pandemic.
Did your wedding have to be delayed because of the pandemic?
Yes, it has been postponed more than once. Émilie and I have finally decided on the date of August 28th. And we chose to have the reception in the gardens of Château Ramsay, in order to be able to accommodate more people.
How many guests did you have?
We were between 40 and 50 people. Members of our families, of course, but, unfortunately, very few friends given the sanitary measures. Nicole Talazi, my sister's daughter, was the celebrant.
Did you use a wedding planner to organize the celebration?
Yes, Maria San Emeterio, an event planner running her own company, Une touche de magie. My niece Pascale had rightly advised us to use her services. Émilie found her dress at the Dream It Yourself boutique, and my costume was tailored by an exceptional designer, Nathon Kong.
