COTTIERS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY / DEBBIE & NEIL
A love story set in the heart of Glasgow
Cottiers wedding photography is always some of our favourite. We met up with Neil and Debbie about a year ago to talk over their plans for the day and we’d been looking forward to photographing this wedding all year. Come with us as we show you why!
The weather in Scotland is unpredictable at the best of times, but during the winter months, it really outdoes itself. As we arrived at Debbie’s parents’ house in the morning to photograph and film everyone getting ready for the day ahead the snow came on. It’s always beautiful when it snows, but, by golly gosh is it cold! Wedding mornings have a habit of whizzing by in the blink of an eye, so before any time at all, we had to head off to Cottiers to meet up with Neil as he began welcoming all of their guests.
Cottiers is one of our favourite venues, it’s a gorgeous building, the staff are fab, and the surroundings are diverse enough to give a good mix of wedding photos and film. We photograph there a lot, and let us tell you, it’s absolutely smashing. This place is a hidden gem for couples who want a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable celebration. The vibes at Cottiers are off the charts, making it the perfect backdrop for your special day. From the insanely cool and rustic ceremony space to the lovely wild-flower garden at the front, every nook and cranny of this venue is a dream to photograph.

Debbie and Neil had opted for a humanist ceremony so had invited David the Humanist along to conduct the ceremony. David’s a lovely guy and always delivers a personal and meaningful service so it was a pleasure to capture.
After the happy couple exchanged vows and officially tied the knot we headed outside to get some photos. Did I mention it was raining? Often such dreary weather is enough to (understandably) put a couple off going outside, but not Neil and Debbie who were totally game and trusted us when we said it would be worth it. Spoiler alert… it totally was!
As we headed back indoors to the warmth it was time for the speeches and we always love hearing all about the story of a couple and getting a little insight into how everything led to their wedding day. After dinner Debbie and Neil were keen on heading up to Ashton lane for some night shots. Naturally, we agreed this was a brilliant idea so we quickly jumped in the car and took the short trip up to Byres road to get a few more shots.
Now onto the really fun part of a wedding day, the evening reception where everyone gets up to dance off their dinner and generally just have a great time. There was certainly no danger of the dance-floor being empty at any point and just before we left the band even invited Neil up on stage to perform his favourite karaoke song, “Why does it always rain on me?” by Travis, how apt 🙂
Thanks so much for having us along to your wedding at Cottiers guys, we had such a great time and hope you enjoy your photos and film as much as we enjoyed creating them!
Fun. Candid. Real.
That’s what we think great wedding photography should be.
Together, let’s capture the good stuff. Those in-between moments, whether sweet, silly or heart-stopping. Let’s celebrate your love and get you all the memories of your day, just the way it happened.
As both photographers and filmmakers, we have the unique ability to create a stunning and cohesive visual diary of your celebration that tells your love story in a way that is timeless, authentic, and completely, unashamedly, all about you.
Working closely together throughout the day, our style is unobtrusive and organic. Capturing the essence of your day without ever being in the way.
We blend seamlessly into the background, capturing the candid and saving the precious moments that make your wedding one of a kind. The raw emotion and natural beauty shine through, producing photographs and a film that remind you of how you actually felt on the day.
