Catherine & David's Old Fruitmarket wedding

Fern photography wedding

From countryside to city blocks. This Old Fruitmarket wedding was one in a million.

Catherine and David grew up in a large farming community so when they decided to get married, space for a few hundred guests was high on the list. Luckily, their Old Fruitmarket wedding was a perfect fit. This was exactly the type of wedding we love to photograph-- fun, lively, and full of personality.

Fern Photography

A little about ourselves first. Fern photography is run by Daniel Rannoch and Matthew Dale. We've been working together since 2011 and started specialising in wedding in 2014. You can read a little more about us and our other amazing associate photographers on our bio page. In short, we love photography, people and weddings. We think our job is very definitely the best in the world!

We describe our wedding photography style as natural, clean, and contemporary images of weddings. We travel near and far to work with couples to make sure their day is documented perfectly. We specialise in using natural light and minimal direction to achieve intimate and personal images of the weddings we photograph.

Our work has been featured in national magazines and the press and attracted the attention of the wedding industry when we were awarded the Scottish Wedding Awards South East Photographer of the year 2016.

Now, back to Catherine and David...

Location

The day started on their farms. The atmosphere was very relaxed with lots of tea and treats. We felt totally at home while we photographed everyone getting ready. The weather was glorious too. A rarity in Scotland.

The next stop was the Trades Hall in Glasgow. Catherine and David had a very large guest list so the ceremony venue needed to be extra-large to accommodate everyone there. Trades Hall fits that bill perfectly, and on top of that, it has a stunning interior to match the occasion.

After the ceremony, the wedding moved to the Old Fruitmarket in Merchant City. The Old Fruitmarket was a functioning market until the 1970s. It still retains period features of the market, including a vaulted roof, cast iron columns and is surrounded on three sides by a large balcony. It is a spectacular looking venue which, with the creative lighting they offer, makes for a unique wedding reception.

Ceremony

The wedding ceremony took place in Trades Hall. It was kilt city in there which added to the colour and splendour of the occasion. It felt like an intimate and personal service too, considering there were 350 people to witness their marriage. Within the grandeur of the large hall, with its wood panelled walls and gilded ceiling, they both included a personal and very enjoyable touch to the proceedings. Everyone was asked to join them in singing “Can you feel the love tonight” from Disney’s The Lion King. The guests threw themselves into the song enthusiastically and that marked the start of a fun day and evening to come.

Celebrations

After the ceremony, Catherine and David along with their guests were piped down the street to the Old Fruitmarket. From this moment on, it was one huge party to celebrate Catherine and David getting married.

After dinner, the band played Catherine and David’s song. The end of first dance was punctuated with an explosion of confetti which signalled the start of the main evening entertainment. From that moment on the dance floor was full. Everyone had an excellent time, including us.
