Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous Scottish Wedding in Glasgows leafy West End captured by Imagine Images, with a wee bit of artistic flair thrown in!
Imagine Images are a team of two photographers – Kirsty MacGregor & Ross Brownlee, who are based in South Lanarkshire, a partnership in photography, and in life.
They feel honoured to be part of couples special days – and love capturing those special moments that they can cherish forever.
They are based in South Lanarkshire, having moved the short distance from the south side of Glasgow. Covering weddings throughout Scotland primarily, they have been requested to travel further afield across the U.K.
They like to offer couples a mix of traditional elegance with a contemporary twist – capturing candid, un-posed moments whilst being friendly and unobtusive.
Prior to meeting the couple, Alison and William’s, Imagine had covered many weddings at their venue – Oran Mor, and their wedding co-ordinator had recommended the team .
The building that is now Oran Mor was originally Kelvinside Parish Church which was built in 1862 by J.J. Stevenson.
The building itself is geometric with a tall campanile tower with pyramid spire. The spire of the church is described as an Italian Gothic Pyramid and is said to be the first to show a markedly foreign influence in Glasgow. The tower itself is a reflection of the original scheme as designed by Charles Wilson. Charles Wilson’s design was described as beautiful and classical, but proved a little too rich for the Church. Instead they employed the talents of J. J. Stevenson, who offered the cheaper quote.
The main body of the church/venue contains slim, cast iron columns that elegantly reach and create an arcade capped by beautiful but simple arches. Ornamenting these arches is a series of rather stern looking heads, which can still be seen in what is now their breathtaking Auditorium.
Even with a Master Dissertation added to the wedding planning mix, Alison and William were very organised, and all their planning running up to the day went smoothly.
Ross shares his recollections of the day,
“There was a relaxed atmosphere as Kirsty photographed some bridal preparation shots with Alison, and I think the photographs with William at Oran Mor before the ceremony helped him relax too.”
“I never tire of taking pictures in the Oran Mor – the ceremony room is simply stunning – enabling us to get the relaxed, informal shots we wanted for Alison and William!”
“After the ceremony, and in keeping with how they wanted their day to go, Alison and William relaxed and enjoyed a glass of champagne with guests before we made our way to the Botanic Gardens for photographs.”
“Sadly though, he was doubled booked. However, he met with the wedding party in the days leading up to the wedding and made pictures that sat on the top table for everyone to enjoy!”
Thank you to Imagine for sharing this beautiful Scottish Wedding day. The caricatures add a lighthearted, comical and artistic flair to a lovely celebration held in one of Glasgows landmark venues. The stunning architecture of Oran Mor is just stunning and the couples joy is clear.
