Oran Mor Glasgow Wedding – Sophie & Charles

The Oran Mor sits proudly at a cross roads in the West End area of Glasgow in Scotland. It started life as a parish church in 1862. However despite a Historic Scotland preservation order it stood derelict and at risk of decaying as we turned into the new millennium. Though in 2002 a restoration project was undertaken to renovate it into a restaurant and events venue, elaborately decorated by the Glaswegian writer and artist Alasdair Gray. Sophie and Charles had asked me travel up to the northern third of the United Kingdom to photograph their Oran Mor wedding on a recommendation of a friend whose wedding I had photographed in Scotland back a few years earlier. I met up with the bride in the morning as she was preparing for her big day. A certain symentary was in place as her maids were helping buttoning up her wedding dress as she watch the royal wedding of Price Harry and Meghan Markle on the hotel room television. Meanwhile her own prince was waiting across the road at Oran Mor. Following the marriage ceremony the bride and groom had arrange a car to take us to the Kelvingrove Art Museum where they had requested access for a few portraits before returning to their guests. It was a scorchingly hot day and even the thick stone walls of Oran Mor was unable to keep the heart out, so occasionally guest sought relief in the light breeze on the street outside. As the sun faded away, the evening celebrations began with the couple’s well rehearsed first dance.

 

“Thank you. We love the photographs”
