Alternative Glasgow Wedding Venues

 

1# Old Fruitmarket

 

As the name would suggest, an old fruit market with lots of original features. A Glasgow City Council Venue that hosts concerts, theatre events, fashion shows, weddings etc.

2# Cottiers

 

Originally a parish church, Cottiers is a bar, restaurant & theatre in Glasgow’s West End.

3# The Lighthouse

 

Scotland’s centre of Design & Architecture, exhibition space & Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s first public commission. (What better time to celebrate him than after the Art School burning down)

Has a tower with outdoor platform – views of the whole city.

4# Drygate Brewery

 

I am totally bias, this was my venue – I loved it!! It has a very industrial vibe: exposed brickwork, concrete floor, Murals by little book transfers (http://www.littlebooktransfers.co.uk/) – very cool.

 

– Independent venue, amazing staff & flexible space

– Sound system, lighting, bar & catering are excellent as this is a brilliant Brewery/bar/restaurant.

-Option to ‘Brew your own’ beer & have tours of the brewery.

Next to the Necropolis & Cathedral too, so great photo opportunities around.

6# St. Andrews in the Square

 A former church that’s only a stones throw from the city centre – Glasgow’s 2nd oldest church, beautiful Georgian building

7# WEST Brewery

 

It’s a bit like ‘Battle of the Breweries’: Drygate Vs. West.

WEST Brewery is within the iconic Templeton building within Glasgow Green – an old carpet factory. Great photo opportunities in both the park & The Peoples Palace, which is close by.

WEST is industrial and every so slightly more formal than Drygate if this is proffered.
