This was the first same-sex or gay wedding that I had photographed at The House for an Art Lover and as always this wonderful venue provided the perfect canvas for my storytelling approach. The building has become a Glasgow institution in recent years celebrating one of it’s most famous sons, the architect, artist and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
I have worked there many times covering all manner of functions but I feel that the best way the place comes to life is when the contrasting spaces of the bright, light Music Room and the substantial dark Main Hall are full of the love, joy and celebration of a wedding party.
Kirsten and Gemma’s wedding was certainly full to the brim of all of the above and there was a real sense of anticipation and excitement amongst the guests as they awaited the arrival of the two brides. And their mood was spot on because the day turned into a real belter!!
It had been raining in the morning but the skies cleared after the ceremony which allowed everyone to go down to the gardens to enjoy a clear crisp spring afternoon. Once I’d done a few family group shots and some portraits of the couple in the walled garden everyone returned to the Main Hall and the celebrations began to crank up!
I’ll let the pictures tell you the full story…..
KIND WORDS FROM KIRSTEN AND GEMMA
If you are considering a wedding at The House for an Art Lover (or anywhere else for that matter) please don’t hesitate to get in touch to chat through your plans and see if I have your date free.
And if you want to use the Walled Garden don’t forget to apply to the Council for a license.
