Thoughtful Scottish Ceremony with Ring Warming at The Bowfield Hotel, Glasgow

With it's gorgeous Ivy wrapped beams adorned with fairylights, the ceremony room at The Bowfield Hotel is a fab venue for a Glasgow Wedding Ceremony. I love the pale brickwork in there and the way the high windows let in lovely pockets of light.

So when L+ G got in touch to ask me to Photograph their wedding I was thrilled. I was recommended to them from another Photographer and their Celebrant Onie, who delivered a beautiful ceremony for the couple on the day.

I hung around with G prior to the ceremony and chatted with captured guests as they arrived and had a drink or said their hello's in the Stable Bar, Bowfields bar area.

The guys wore kilts from MacGregor & MacDuff in Glasgow, which were traditional yet very modern. They were on top form, laughing, joking and posing while preparing for the ceremony.

L's Bridesmaid was her sister, who wore a striking blue gown and walked down the aisle first, before it was L's turn. They went straight into an extremely touching ceremony that included a Ringwarming ritual as well as involving absent friends and family, namely L's Mum who had recently passed away. It was obvious that she was an incredibly loved woman as there was not a dry eye, and it was so lovely to see their love for her be part of the ceremony.

L's dress was from Monsoon and was stunningly embellished. She carried flowers from Marlene's Flowers which consisted of thistles and striking pops of blue with delicate accents. The hand tied bouquet was tied with some really pretty Tartan ribbon, that was entwined with a memory photo frame with an inscription and photo of her Mum. I adore little personal touches on a Wedding day.

After the Ceremony, the happy couple toasted with a glass of champagne and we headed over to the bandstand area of The Bowfield, along with all the guests.

Here we did confetti and quickly got all the Group shots completed in record time, everyone laughing and in top form, it was very easy going - a lovely crowd of people.

I then took L + G for their couple portraits just casually around the grounds as, if you know me, I'm not huge on the posey stuff at all, some nice gentle walking shots and fun prompts and we were done. I got these guys back to their guests quickly - but not before we made a wee visit to the other side of the carpark... to see L's favourite thing in the world, next to G and the dog of course, her car!

Congrats again, L+ G - thanks a million for having me along to capture your bloomin' amazing day.
