Ian Arthur - Wedding Photographers Glasgow & Argyll

Argyll & Glasgow Wedding Photographer

Ian Arthur Wedding Photography


Creative and experienced, I am professional photographer who offers a natural & elegant style of photography for small & large ceremonies across central Scotland – including Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Argyll & Ayrshire. With decades of experience, I bring my skills to each and every wedding without any fuss, and always with a smile.

Micro Weddings

Whether it’s an Intimate Wedding with a few of your closest to help you along the way or an Elopement Wedding with just two people in love, I would love to capture your wedding day moments in Glasgow, Argyll or Central Scotland.

Small Weddings

You’ve got the dress, the cars and maybe the church, but with fewer guests than a big wedding. I can provide creative and uncomplicated wedding coverage for a few hours or from start to finish for your wedding day photography.

Large Weddings

Elegant wedding photography in Scotland for those massive wedding days with lots going on and lots of guests. Creative and uncomplicated coverage from the start to finish with professional and  time-lasting wedding photography.


& Thank You

Thank you for considering me as your wedding photographer. I feel really honoured doing what I do because I know how important and special my pictures are, which is why I full appreciate the trust each couple places in me to capture their wedding day.

Your wedding is the start of a new journey, and I would like to share a part of this journey with you in the best way I can – through my wedding photography

My Approach

I firmly believe that the wedding day is all about YOU and not about the photographer, so my approach weddings is not let the photography get in the way of the day and I do this by standing back and capturing the day as it unfolds. I work quickly and quietly to let you to get on with enjoying the wedding, and me to get on with capturing those natural moments.

The only time I get directly involved with the wedding day is for the family groups and the couples portraits, with the groups taken in a traditional way and the couple’s portraits taken with a more natural and elegant approach. For the rest of the day I just photograph things as and when they happen – which I’m sure you would agree is the best way to capture any kind of wedding.

My Style

I’ve been a wedding photographer long enough to not get distracted by fads or fashion, which is why I work in my own way to photograph each and every wedding. Although some photographers in Glasgow & Argyll like to use long words and complicated words to describe what they do, I don’t – I just call it wedding photography.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer who makes you do cheesy poses or where no-one smiles – then that’s not me. It’s really not. I like to keep the photography as simple, elegant and as natural as I can because what may look cool and trendy today, may look dated tomorrow. And if you’re looking for a photographer who edits their pictures with funky colours or makes them look dark and moody – then that’s not me, either.

I believe in clarity and colour so I will individually edit each picture to look bright, natural and colourful – because I want your pictures to look just as good in 20 years time as they do today. And because I know that most couples like their pictures in black & white – so I will always ensure you have a complete set of monochrome pictures to compliment your wedding day memories.


I’ve been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and over these years I’ve photographed enough weddings to know that every wedding is different, and the experience I’ve gained over the years gives me the ability to think on my feet, especially when things don’t go entirely to plan.

Whether it’s the weather, the cars, the venue or one of the many other things that could get in the way of the day, I’m always ready for next picture. And, being the nice guy that I am, I’ve also helped bride’s with their veil’s, groom’s with their tie’s, flower girls with their shoes and even got a wee bit misty eyed with a few of the Mum’s during some of the speeches – because that’s what wedding photographers do.

Pink Wedddings

It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity to photograph a gay marriage, so I offer a professional service to both brides and grooms to meet the needs of lesbian and gay couples when declaring their love for one another.

I’ve been photographing Same-sex Weddings in Glasgow and Scotland for over fifteen years with my GLBT friendly photography. If you are having a big wedding, a small wedding, or just a tiny wedding with just the two of you and a few guests, then I would love to photograph your day. Visit my page to find out a little bit more and maybe sometimes soon we can talk about your day.


The images you captured at our wedding at the Duck Bay Marina are simply stunning and the friendly way you dealt with everyone was great. You were unbelievably patient as we revised and revised again the proof of the wedding album so we could get it just as we wanted it – and the Storybook is perfect.

Gillian & John

We were married at the Corinthian Club in Glasgow and Ian was great from start to finish. We didn’t know what to expect really, but Ian was helpful before the day and on the day itself we didn’t see a great deal of him but we were amazed when we got the pictures as it seems he was everywhere. The pictures are just so perfect and we couldn’t wish for anything better. Thank you Ian.

Hamish & Mark

Ian is a fantastic photographer. Found him to be really easy going, lovely guy, a total professional and very reasonably priced too. We received our wedding album in recently and we couldn’t be happier with the photos he took on our wedding day the Waterside in Ayrshire. He captured everything perfectly. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in Glasgow or Ayrshire.

Debbie & Mark

Ian is a true gent of a photographer. We were married at the Glasgow Register Office and then we went to the Bothy for the rest of the day. Ian’s pictures from the whole day were truly wonderful and besides capturing lots of candid moments, he also took some great shots of us in the West End. He even stopped the traffic while we posed for a picture. The pictures are just what we wanted and during the day Ian was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for the wonderful pictures, which we will treasure.

Beth & Doug
