Ian Arthur Wedding Photography

Glasgow, Loch Lomond & Argyll



Creative & Elegant Photography for weddings of all shapes and sizes across Scotland. I photograph weddings both large and small, capturing moments as they happen and when they happen, telling wedding stories through my picture taking.

We would recommend Ian to anyone looking for a professional, talented and easy-to-work with photographer. He was on time, smartly dressed and made us all feel at ease. Our pictures are to die for and we received many compliments from our friends and family. Everything we received is high-quality and was sent to us within 2 weeks from the wedding day, just as promised. Choosing a photographer was not an easy task, but we couldn't have chosen any better. Thank you Ian for everlasting memories!

Ian was absolutely fantastic! He was so charming and personable, and the guests loved him as well! We are so incredibly happy with his photographs and so excited that he was willing to take us on! Fantastic!

Eilidh & Kyle, The Waterside, Ardrossan

We had Ian as our photographer last summer and honestly couldn't have been happier! The photos all turned out way better than we had hoped for and he put us at ease throughout our big day. He was the perfect mix between having us laughing for group shots and disappearing into the crowd for natural shots, and excellent with the kids which was such an important thing for our wedding. Thanks Ian x

Karen & Mark, The Rosslea, Helensburgh

It was an absolute pleasure to have you at our wedding and we really can’t thank you enough! From the moment you arrived you presented such a professional persona, nothing was too much troubled you put us at ease.

Jo & David, Ross Priory, Loch Lomond

We cannot recommend Ian highly enough for any of your future weddings where the couples need a photographer. This is a special and important part of any wedding and he was excellent in both service and quality.

Sarah & Mark, Knockderry House, Argyll

Ian made us feel 100% comfortable and on our wedding day and he captured the essence of the day in a series of natural shots. We could not have been happier. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.

Soon it’s going to be your wedding day and it’s going to be one of the most exciting and romantic days of your life, which is why you are looking for a photographer who feels that your wedding is just as important as you do. Every wedding is important to me because it’s the start of a new journey for two people who are madly in love, and however big or intimate your day is going to be, I would be thrilled to play a small part in your journey in the best way I can – through my wedding photography.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

Kark Lagerfeld


I believe that the best wedding pictures are those that are clear and colourful, and that the best way to do business with anyone is through honesty and integrity.


My aim is to photograph things as and when they happen. Some photographers have long and coomplicated words for what they do, 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 make all my couples as happy as they can be with their pictures.

GLBT Friendly

Same Sex Weddings

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 Pink Weddings for over ten years with my GLBT friendly photography, so 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 litte bit more and maybe sometimes soon we can talk about your day.

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. We would highly recommend him.

Lee & Simon, Rosneath, Argyll

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.

Rory & Scott, Glasgow

We were obviously nervous about our wedding and especially nervous about having our pictures taken, but during the day we hardly noticed Ian and when it came to the family groups he did them so quickly and cheerfully. Everyone said how professional he was and we couldnt be happier with out pictures. We had a great day but one of our best decisions was having Ian as our photographer.  Thank you so much, Ian.

Susan and Rebecca, Corinthian Club, Glasgow

When we met Ian we knew we were going to be okay as he knew exactly what we wanted and gave us lots of confidence because we had heard of so many horror stories about wedding photographers. At the wedding Ian was superb. He was there when we needed him and forthe rest of the time he wa just taking pictures. We couldnt have asked for a better photographer and a nicer guy and we couldnt believe how great the pictures were when we received them. We are so happy and would recommend anyone hetting married to book Ian for their photographer.
