Glasgow & Argyll Wedding Photography
My name is Ian Arthur and I am a full-time wedding photographer. I photograph church weddings, hotel weddings and register office weddings of all shapes and sizes in Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Argyll, the highlands and across Scotland, capturing weddings in a natural way.
A wedding is the start of a new journey. Its also a story and the best way to tell any story is with pictures, but to do this you need a certain kind of photographer to capture your day – one who has the experience to know where to be and what to do during a wedding, and one who you can rely upon to capture your day.
I tell wedding stories through my picture taking. There are some formal parts of the day, as there is at every wedding, but for most of the time I am with you its just me, taking pictures and capturing the day in my own way – quickly, quietly and without a lot of fuss.
Wedding photography for intimate and elopement weddings with just a few guests.
Wedding photography for small weddings with just enough guests and lots of pictures.
Wedding photography for big weddings with lots of guests and pictures from start to finish.
Photographing any kind of day

Exceeding our expectations
“Before the big day everyone said that the day will pass quickly and that we should stand back and take a moment to absorb the atmosphere and remember. We tried to take it all in, but for all those special moments we didn’t catch but thankfully Ian did..!”
Kristen & AJ
