SNEAK PEEK: Glasgow University Chapel and Cottiers, Glasgow – Rebecca and Quentin

Glasgow is such an incredible city, full of beautiful buildings and architecture. As well as it’s amazing modern skyline along the Clyde, there are some wonderful traditional buildings and locations that are perfect for weddings.

Glasgow University Chapel is among them, which alumni can have their wedding ceremony. Whether it’s a humanist or religious ceremony, the chapel makes a wonderful backdrop for weddings. Rebecca is an alumni of Glasgow University and so it was a fitting location for her wedding to Quentin. They wanted to show their friends and family, from France and Isle of Man, to experience everything they loved about the city they’ve made home. The Cloisters were also perfect for photographs after the ceremony, simple but beautiful and the light that pours in through them really creates a fantastic sense of atmosphere.

After their wedding ceremony, it was off to Cottiers Theatre for the reception, a short distance from the University, and as a converted church it had the same feel with high ceilings, decorated with twinkling lights to add to the party atmosphere.

The feel of their wedding, while very classical, also felt very modern, with beautiful flowers from Little Botanica, and that stunning Dana Bolton wedding gown.

I was thrilled to have a second shooter with me as well – Julie from Juliebee Photography – who I’ve worked with several times before.

I loved photographing Rebecca and Quentin as well. We’d previously had an engagement session in the autumn, so working with them just seemed to flow together beautifully, and I loved how relaxed they were on the day in their photographs. Everything about this day just felt incredible, and both the University and Cottiers are a wonderful combination for a naturally photogenic wedding.
