Today’s blog post is Claire and Andy’s wonderful winter wedding at House for an Art Lover in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow.
Nearly 120 years ago Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed an entry in a competition to design a “Haus Eines Kunstfreundes” or “Art Lovers House” set by German design magazine “Zeitschrift Fur Innendekoration”. Mackintosh worked with his wife Margaret MacDonald to design an elegant country retreat and although the entry was disqualified the design was highly praised. The house remained a paper design for more than 80 years before Graham Roxburgh had the idea to actually build it. Working with a team of architects Roxburgh developed a workable design which used the ideas which had been created by Mackintosh and MacDonald. 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.
Claire had chosen beautiful white tulips for her bouquets and these were delivered fresh on the morning by Mood Flowers.
Claire and Andy’s ceremony took place in the Main Hall of the House and was conducted by Maureen Kettle, who is a Humanist Celebrant. It really was a lovely ceremony and so personal to Andy and Claire, right down to the unique things they love about each other! After the ceremony we took time for some formal photographs before moving into the Music room for one of the the fun parts of the day – the speeches!
Finally it was time for the dancing to begin. Music for the evening was provided by the excellent Sneaky Treacle, and they did not disappoint. From the minute Claire and Andy started the evening with their first dance as Mr and Mrs, to the end of the night the dance floor was absolutely packed!
Congratulations again to Claire & Andy, I hope you are enjoying married life!
