Glasgow Register Office & Hotel Indigo Wedding Photographer

David and Krystie came a long way to get married in Glasgow. David is from Glasgow and when he left the RAF decided to emigrate to Australia, and after a while started dating Krystie – and then fell head over heels in love with her and asked for her hand in marriage. This left a small problem: do they get married in Australia or travel back to Glasgow? As David had a bigger family, and as David’s father couldn’t travel they decided toget married in Glasgow.

Krystie and David decided to keep it all as simple as they could so they decided to have a small ceremony in the Glasgow Register Office and their reception at the Hotel Indigo – which is where they happened to be staying. Krystie’s Mum and Dad had travelled with them from Canberra and I met them at the hotel when I arrived for the bride’s preparation pictures, and they were so excited to be here. They were even excited to see the rain…!

After the wedding ceremony, and while the guests made their way back to the Hotel Indigo, I took Krystie and David out to George Square for some pictures, and then took them to Clydebank to get some pictures with David’s Dad, who was too ill to travel. After that I took Krystie and David to Clydebank college to take some pictures of them near the river Clyde and the Titan crane. After lots of pictures it was mission accomplished so I drove them back into Glasgow and back to the hotel for a few more pictures with their family and friends before the wedding breakfast.

It was a great day, and I enjoyed taking Krystie and David up to Clydebank to get some pictures with his Dad. When planning a wedding, sometimes we forget how difficult it can be for some people to travel so it was well worth doing this, and I was more than happy to oblige to make sure that David’s Dad got to see his son and his new life-partner on their wedding day. Sometimes, memories are worth more than anything else. Thank you for letting me be your photographer and I wish you well for the future in Australia.
