University of Glasgow Wedding Photography

One of Scotlands four ancient universities, founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is a great location for a wedding. Weddings take place in the university Memorial Chapel, which is a stunning space to exchange vows with your partner. Getting married at the university of Glasgow is not available to everyone though. To be able to have your wedding ceremony here, you need to be a current student or graduate, or the child of a graduate. More info about wedding requirements on the University of Glasgow website.

Hey! I'm Karen! I'm a wedding photographer based in Glasgow's West End, just a short walk from the University of Glasgow and I specialise in natural, unobtrusive coverage of relaxed and informal weddings. I team this documentary coverage with as many group photos as you'd like with your friends and family, and a few creative portraits that will make the most of the light and the details of your chosen wedding venue. Every package includes a planning meeting and venue visit so that I can personalise your coverage to be the best fit for you and your unique wedding day.

5 Reasons to Choose University of Glasgow for Your Wedding

  1. Being able to exchange vows in a historic 500+ year old building is not available to everyone, and with it's exclusivity, it will set your wedding day apart, offering a unique experience both for you both and your guests.

  2. With plenty of space under the cloisters, both couple and guests have rain cover incase the weather is not favourable. The cloisters is such a unique and special space, using it for wedding photos isn't a compromise.

  3. The location. With plenty of parking space for guests and suppliers, it's also centrally located and easy to get to another reception venue, should you be having the evening celebrations elsewhere.

  4. With the location being adjacent to Kelvingrove Park, the University of Glasgow is well placed for park portraits with some gorgeous greenery. (Please be aware you would need to arrange a permit for wedding photography in Kelvingrove Park)

  5. The variety. Within what is a fairly compact space, there are many options for photos that take in lots of the buildings fine details, whether that's the architecture, the lion and unicorn staircase, the stunning windows, or the views over Kelvingrove Park.
