Cottiers Theatre Wedding Venue by Glasgow wedding photographer Karen Julia Photography

Cottiers Theatre Weddings

Cottiers Theatre is a unique and charming church conversion Glasgow wedding venue situated in Glasgow’s west end.

If you’re looking for a flexible wedding venue in Glasgow that can hold up to 130 guests for the wedding breakfast, you need to check out Cottiers.

Formerly Dowanhill Church, Cottiers has a real traditional feel from the outside. This church conversion features beautiful stained glass windows and ornate stonework. It’s extremely versatile, leaving you with the option to create any wedding vibe you want. Whether you want an intimate gathering or an extravagant party, Cottiers could well be the perfect fit.

I’m a professional wedding photographer based a short (15 minute) walk from Cottiers Theatre in Buckingham Terrace, and I’d love to shoot a wedding (well, lots of weddings!) at this stunning and unique venue.

Cottiers Theatre and wedding venue


I’m originally from Rutherglen but have been based in Manchester for the last 12 years.

From June 1st 2019 I’ll be based in Glasgow’s West End and during 2019 I’ll be looking to build up my portfolio with weddings from a selection of Glasgow wedding venues.

I’ve toured the area looking for some gorgeous wedding venues that I love to add to my portfolio and I’m offering special rates for 1st and 2nd bookings at specific venues.

I love chic city weddings, and Glasgow has some truly unique locations to get married in! Cottiers Theatre looks like a great location for a wedding, and I’d love to shoot there!

To see my style, check out my recent blog posts, or head over to the portfolio area in the menu to see collections of weddings from throughout the North West of England.

This page is a little sparse right now, but I’ll be adding photo and video content in the coming weeks as I get settled into my new location. I’m so excited to have moved back to Glasgow!

Cottiers: Where to Have Group Photos?

Dowanhill Park is right across the road from Cottiers Theatre and can be used for group photos and couple portraits.

If you’d like to venture further afield for couple portraits, we could head to the nearby Botanic Gardens.

If you’d like photos here, remember to arrange a permit before the wedding day! This can be done directly via the Glasgow City Council website. The current cost is around £70. There’s a time limit of 45 minutes, but this is more than enough time for couple portraits.
