Sunny Autumn Wedding at House for an Art Lover

This wedding day just happened to coincide with a cycling event that was taking place at various locations in Glasgow, including very close to House for an Art Lover at Bellahouston Park. Thankfully access was still possible via a scenic detour, so the wedding was not impacted.

I was providing 6 hours of wedding photography coverage on this day, so started just before the ceremony to get a few guest arrival photos, and then it was straight into the wedding ceremony.

Wedding Ceremony

The couple had a humanist celebrant, which is growing increasingly popular at weddings in Scotland. It was a really lovely and heartfelt ceremony, and the couple each took turns in reading out vows they had personally written.

Group Photos

After the wedding ceremony, which took place in the dining room next to the main hall, the couple and their guests all headed out to the gardens where we had a few group photos to do, prior to the couple portraits.

Couple Portraits

We were so lucky with the weather! It was a sunny day with a clear blue sky, it still felt like summer, despite being the 1st of October.

The bride and groom had really wanted a portrait with their dogs, so during the planning meeting, we worked out the best time for the dog sitter to meet us in the park, and this worked out perfectly on the day.

I love being organised, and planning in all the details in advance really makes a difference when it comes to the wedding day.

Our first stop for couple portraits was the Victorian walled garden next to House for an Art Lover. The flower beds were vibrant and colourful, a stunning location for portraits.

We then left the walled gardens to head to the dramatic tree lined walkway, briefly stopping at the colourful flower beds at the entrance to the walled garden.

Wedding Breakfast

The couple and their guests were to enjoy the wedding breakfast in the music room. This is a bright ivory coloured room, with purple and red accents.

I got some candid photos of the cake cut, and then of the happy couple entering the room as their friends and family welcomed them.

Evening Wedding Reception

The evening reception was taking place downstairs, where the first dance was being followed by a ceilidh. I love photographing ceilidhs! They’re so much fun, so lots of opportunities for fun candid photos of guests.

Wedding Ceilidh

I got lots of photos of the ceilidh before I left the couple and their guests to enjoy the rest of the evening wedding reception.
