Glasgow Wedding Photography

Glasgow wedding photography is always special for me. I spend a lot of time there and love the city. In this case Andy and Claire, the bride and groom, are also really good friends so it was doubly special! Their wonderful winter wedding took place at House for an Art Lover in Bellahouston Park.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh created the house nearly 120 years ago. This was for a competition to design a “Haus Eines Kunstfreundes” or “Art Lovers House”. Mackintosh worked with his wife, Margaret MacDonald, to design an elegant country retreat. Their entry was actually disqualified but the design was highly praised. It remained on paper for more than 80 years before Graham Roxburgh decided to build it. He worked with a team of architects to develop a workable design using Mackintosh and MacDonald’s ideas. The house was built and opened in 1996.

In December 2018 Claire and Andy invited friends and family to join them to celebrate their wedding in this beautiful venue.
