Oran Mor - Wedding Venue Spotlight

A repost from a few years ago... Oran Mor, an amazing venue.

My fourth spotlight on wedding venues that I am a preferred supplier to brings us into the heart of Glasgow's West End, to Oran Mor on the corner of Byres Road and Great Western Road.

Oran Mor is only 15 minutes from Glasgow's city centre by taxi and public transport. From the west simply follow the signs for Glasgow which brings you onto Great Western Road, keep going until you see the building on your right hand side. From the North, South and East come off the M8 at junction 17 sign posted for Dumbarton and again head along Great Western Road. The airport is only 30 minutes away if you traveling from further afield.

Oran Mor is a converted church that has a busy bar and night club on the ground floors but as you walk up the spiral staircase to the splendid, magnificent, unique auditorium, you are instantly a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the busy West End. When the building was renovated Alasdair Gray was commissioned to paint the ceiling resulting in a fantastic celestial mural, one of Scotland's largest pieces of public art. The auditorium also changes in mood as the light changes throughout the day, the stain glass windows and additional lighting transforms the room from day to night 
as if you were in a completely different setting. 

Oran Mor is less than 5 minutes from Park Circus Registry Office and has many churches including Glasgow University Chapel near by, the venue also holds a license for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, humanist and religious weddings can also be held within he venue. Weddings from as small as 15 or up to 250 can be catered for with room for additional evening guests.

The Botanical Gardens and Kibble Palace are also just over the road, the gardens can be used for outdoor photography although you do need to get a license for this from the local council!

If you require accommodation for visiting family or guests Oran Mor's location couldn't be better, there are several great local hotels that include The Hilton Grosvenor (directly opposite) or One Devonshire Gardens a few minutes along the road.
