As you begin planning your dream wedding, finding that perfect location should be high on your to-do list. If you’re looking for a unique, historic yet versatile venue, you need to check out Oran Mor, a popular central Scotland wedding venue in Glasgow’s leafy West End.
Formerly Kelvinside Parish Church, Oran Mor has a real traditional feel from the outside. The moment you lay eyes on this church conversion, you can simply feel the class and magic. 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, Oran Mor will certainly deliver.
I’m a professional wedding photographer based across the road from Oran Mor in Buckingham Terrace, and I’d love to shoot a wedding (well, lots of weddings!) at this stunning and unique venue.
Glasgow West End Relocation
I’m originally from Rutherglen but have been based in Manchester for the last 12 years.
From May 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! Oran Mor 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!

Oran Mor: Where to Have Group Photos?
Oran Mor is only a few minutes walk from Glasgow’s Botanical Gardens. This is a great option for both group photos and couple portraits if the weather is good!
If you’d like wedding photos in the Botanic Gardens, 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 sufficient for bridal party group photo combination and couple portraits.
Oran Mor Parking
