Julie & Keiron – House for an Art Lover, Glasgow
This wedding was an absolute pleasure to be part of. House for an Art Lover was voted one of the best 50 wedding venues in the UK by the Independent, and it contains a spectacular set of rooms based on designs by the world-famous Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Julie and Keiron asked their guests to answer the question “I promise to dance if you play [insert song]” as part of responding to wedding invites, a risky tactic if ever I have seen one. However this produced some super selections. Yes, even The Eve of the War (the dodgy disco tune from The War of the Worlds), a nomination which initially made me laugh out loud.
I think my favourite bits were the obligatory songs from the couple’s beloved Belle & Sebastian, the grimey Stormzy, Skepta and Dizzee Rascal section, and an emotionally-charged run of Frankie Miller’s Caledonia, Sunshine on Leith, Aidan Moffat’s The Parting Song, and Dignity as we approached midnight.
The photos below are by Julie & Keiron’s talented friends. Unfortunately I couldn’t obtain the rights to use their official wedding photos. I’d like to plug the ceilidh band that played for part of the evening, Cloud Howe – lovely folk.
