The Cottiers Glasgow -Lee & Hollys City Wedding
A Crisp winters day wedding with graffiti & Uber Taxis
Lee & Holly got married in November at the spectacular Cottiers Theatre Glasgow. This old church has been converted into a community theatre, its dark and moody with stunning windows and a romantic atmosphere.
The excitement before the wedding
Lee got ready at home with the lads, they love in the West End of Glasgow and from their apartment you can see out for miles, the sun was out, but it was absolutely freezing, it made for gorgeous light though!! Holly was with her bridesmaids and her Mum at …. Hotel, it was a gorgeous Georgian building with dark walls and amazing window light. Holly has to be one of the most laid back brides I have ever worked with, she casually ordered a taxi 5 mins before the ceremony to take us all to the venue so she could say I do!!
The ceremony room was DARK!!! However, there were gorgeous fairy lights, and a amazing back light from the theatre set up, this made the photos really capture the atmosphere of the cerement. Hollys Mum walked her down the aisle, and they were both grinning from ear to ear as they entered the room.
After the ceremony
The reception was upstairs at the Cottiers, all the guests were treated to tapas style Scottish delicacies, whilst myself, Lee & Holly grabbed an uber and headed to SGW3 to get some portraits using the amazing street art the area is renowned for. They chose both of the venues as they didn’t want a traditional wedding. City centres are great for weddings as you find little spots and it makes you look at landscapes differently. I love city weddings, and especially street art
The couple met whilst on skiing trip. Lee is an old friend of mine, and when they got engaged Holly got straight in touch to see if I was free. She said she really loved my style and didn’t want anyone else to shoot their wedding, I felt so humbled. I love shooting friends weddings, as I get the best view in the house, and spend a shit load of time with people I love. What a fantastic job !!
Hollys vision was relaxed, simple and a little bit quirky. Her dress was hand made by a friend, and she went for a 60’s inspired look for her bridesmaids, all wearing green. The lads wore whatever they fancied, so it was a real mix of casual and cool, with Hollys great sense of style.
