Beth & Dan | Arta Wedding Photographer, Glasgow, Scotland

18/02/2018 Blog, Wedding

Small weddings are close to my heart- partly because I had a small wedding myself, but mostly because they are just so intimate and romantic. With a carefully-chosen guest list, a unique urban wedding venue and a very personal ceremony, Beth and Dan planned their way just the way they wanted it; keeping the traditions they liked, and adding in their own wee touches to make their day theirs.

Arta is a unique urban wedding venue in Glasgow, Scotland with soft, romantic lighting and beautiful Mediterranean-inspired features. There are several different rooms, each with slightly different decor and Beth & Dan held each part of their day in a different space. From roman & greek inspired statues, to dark & moody paintings to wrought iron candelabras it’s easy to forget that you are in the heart of Glasgow and not in a Mediterranean villa. If you’re looking for a unique wedding venue with a romantic atmosphere and loads of great spots for wedding photos- this is it!

Beth & Dan were legally married before this celebration, so they were able to really personalize their ceremony. ‘Officiating’ themselves, the couple called upon family to share heartfelt readings and friends to perform truly beautiful live vocals. Their ceremony was immediately followed by their cake cutting and first dances, and after a relaxed afternoon they settled in around one big table for dinner. Speeches were done informally and everyone was welcome to speak, with some lovely stories and sentiments shared by their guests. We heard stories of how the couple met, how their relationship grew and how well suited they are to one another- something everyone seemed to agree on (and is pretty obvious to anyone who sees them together). By the end of the evening I felt like I knew these two personally. A warm, friendly and genuine couple, Beth & Dan made me feel like part of the family from the first time we met- my couples really are the best!

Here are a few of my favourite images from Beth & Dan’s day, I hope they provide some romantic wedding photography inspiration for those of you considering a wedding at Arta Glasgow. Happy planning!
