Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous Glasgow Wedding full of football inspiration with a Motherwell loving Groom and a Celtic loving Bride and some Tunnocks Tea Cakes thrown into the mix.
Images of the day were captured by Mike Cook Photography.
Aileen & Scott’s Wedding was held at the fantastic Oran Mor in Glasgow.
Situated in the Heart of the West End of Glasgow, Òran Mór is a unique venue, being coverted from a church.
The main Venue space is enhanced by the original stained glass and, as well as retaining many of the original features of the church, offers a contemporary setting in which to hold weddings.
Mike recalls his memories of the day,
“The couple only booked me about a month before the wedding due to a few issues with their existing photographer and, naturally, I’m really pleased they did as this was a fantastic day all round.”
“It was a beautiful day weather wise so had to make sure I had the old factor 15 on to avoid the customary sunburnt head – still failed miserably though.”
“A lovely ceremony was followed by a daunder to the florals and greenery of Glasgow Botanics, across the road from Oran Mor where we captured some portraits”
“Then it was back over to the Venue for the meal and Reception.”
“I love Oran Mor, the main reception room is just so full of character and colour, a range of purples and reds across the room as the sun streams through the stained glass windows.”
“This makes for stunning Photography though the light can be challenging at times.”
“I hope I’ve got that the right way round as I know how important these things can be – it’s like someone having me down as an Arsenal supporter!!!”
“I seem to recall that James McFadden featured quite heavily in the speeches as well – Scott’s favourite player I think for which he took the usual ribbing from the masses. ”
“I loved all the football related table decorations and football pitch table plan…now, if only I had thought along those lines as a theme for my own wedding, although not sure it would have got past the gatekeeper (ie. the missus).”
“A great day!”
