I am a GLBT friendly Photographer and believe that same sex marriage should be celebrated like any other marriage: openly, proudly and warmly – so it’s time to celebrate your love..!

Ian Arthur Wedding Photography


“Love is love” as they say and I strongly believe that if you’re in love then it deserves to be celebrated, no matter who you want to marry. Whether you’re having a pink wedding, a same sex ceremony or whatever your day is going to be, it’s still the coming together of two people who are madly in love, so let me help you with this journey through my picture taking.


Two of my strongest business values are that the best way of dealing with people is through honesty and integrity, and that wedding pictures should be clear and colourful.


My style is about is about capturing the day as it happen in a relaxed and natural way. Some photographers use complicated words for it, but I just call it wedding photography.


My only aims are to capture the day in the best way that I can - through my photography and to make all my couples as happy as they can be with their pictures.

One of the great things about Scotland

One of the great things about Scotland is that same sex marriage has been happening here since 2004. And wow..! Doesn’t time fly, as it only seemed like yesterday. I photographed my first same sex ceremony in 2006, and its been a pleasure to photograph each and every ceremony. I firmly believe that everyone has the right to be themselves which is why I offer a service that is genuinely gay and lesbian friendly, and most of all, a professional service where you can relax, be yourself and not have to worry about the photography.

Your wedding deserves to be photographed

You’ve made the decision to get married and now you’re planning a wonderful day, but maybe you’re not really sure about having a professional photographer to take the pictures. Well don’t be, because this day is all about you and your partner and it deserves to be photographed. 

Over the years I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, so I know where to be and what to do at any site of wedding. Most of the couples I’ve photographed were straight couples and many were not, but regardless of age, gender or orientation, I also know just how nervous most couples are going to be, which is why I approach my weddings in a relaxed and candid way. I’m not going to take hours with the groups or have you grinning like Cheshire cats all day, and I certainly won’t get you to do daft things because most of all – I strongly believe that every wedding deserves respect. What you will get is tasteful, time-lasting and elegant photography that captures your day and all those unforgettable moments.

It’s easy to see when two people are in love, especially at a wedding, but once the cars and cakes have all gone one of the few things you will have left to remember your day are your pictures, and its these pictures which are going to let you remember your day for many years to come. This is why you need to choose a photographer who shares your vision.

Rory & Scott

We would recommend Ian to anyone looking for a truly great photographer! We had a fairly small wedding, but we were still incredibly nervous, and it was great to have someone like Ian playing on our team. Ian really went above and beyond so that we never felt lost or confused in the hubbub after the ceremony. All of our guests noticed, and gave Ian high praise.

We just got our album, and the photos are amazing! We couldn’t possibly have been any happier with our experience with Ian and we would recommend him to anyone.

Lee & Simon

Ian did us proud when it came to the images captured of our special day. He was great fun to work with and just blended into the background, capturing the essence of the day rather than anything too staged. Yes, of course, we did the usual family photos which were posed, but Ian put everyone at their ease and the photos he took looked really natural. He also got some amazing shots of us in front of the beautiful Argyll & Bute scenery. A memorable day made even more so with the help of Ian. Thank you..!
