Laura and Kevin's wedding photography at University of Glasgow
So Laura and Kevin's wedding, like so many other couples, was meant to be in May 2020. Then it was changed to May 2021, and finally they got their day at University of Glasgow in October 2021.
I so admire couples who have persevered through many date changes. To keep going and constantly contacting suppliers many times, changing dates, must have been so hard.
My day started at the Glasgow Grosvenor where all the girls were getting ready. There was some beautiful light shining through the windows into the rooms which were quite dark. It created some lovely pictures.
I had ordered an Uber to take me to the Uni, which didnt turn up! So, some lovely wedding guests allowed me in their taxi!!
I arrived before Kevin and his groomsmen though, and got great pictures of them all arriving with their umbrellas matching their tartan trews. Loved it!
Laura's bridesmaids then arrived followed by Laura and her Dad. Laura was emotional walking up the aisle to meet Kevin. I love capturing those moments. The ceremony was performed by Kathryn Ross and the chapel was looking amazing. Light was pouring through the stained glss windows at the front of the altar, beautiful.
After the ceremony we headed out for a group shot then through to the cloisters for the drinks reception. In all the times I have photographed at the Uni I have only ever seen the drinks reception here twice, it was great.
The cloisters is an amazing place for pictures. Lots of little shards of light that you can use.
The reception was held at Oran Mor, also in the west end of Glasgow. It is a converted church building which had the most amazing ceiling I have ever seen (excluding the Sistine Chapel!). It really is a must see.
The speeches where before the meal and then it was onto the dancing. I loved the "Ye Dancin" neon sign that was on display. For anyone not from Glasgow, that means - Can I please have this dance?
The couples band did some fantastic ceilidh music. This type of dancing is my favourite to photograph. It's got movement, laughter and occasionally tears and often all at the same time!
What a great day!
