Small Wedding Venues in Glasgow

A small wedding is intimate, deeply personal and usually much more relaxed than a bustling, showy event. You can include extra touches, spend more time with your family and close friends, and simply be more present in the day. To get that perfect, intimate wedding, you need the perfect small venue.

We’ve pulled together our favourite small and intimate wedding venues in Glasgow.

Don’t forget to consider your wedding car once you’ve chosen your venue. We have dozens of wedding cars in Glasgow available to hire.

5 Small & Intimate Glasgow Venues

1. St Mungo Museum

Capacity: 40 in the smallest room (but up to 120 if you use the biggest room)

St. Mungo Museum is a multi-faith museum, gallery and events centre. It’s designed to bring together different faiths, facilitate conversation and improve the community. It also makes for a lovely, intimate wedding venue.

There’s a beautiful zen garden (the first in Britain), a church built in the medieval style, and galleries. The ceremony room is small and intimate to facilitate a quiet, laid-back wedding.

It’s located right next to Glasgow’s Cathedral and Necropolis, so there’s plenty of beautiful photo opportunities. The smallest room (the classroom) has a maximum capacity of 40, with other rooms at capacities of 50, 80 and 120. You can find the room to suit your party size so it doesn’t feel empty, but cosy and intimate.

Visit Glasgow Life for enquiry contact details.

2.  Òran Mór: Gallery

Capacity: 32 guests (gallery) or 60 guests (Fonn Mór)

Òran Mór is an unusual venue in Glasgow as it’s a church converted into a modern wedding venue. Holding onto some of the traditional features, like the stained glass windows, it combines these with modern designs, such as a beautiful, celestial ceiling mural.

While Òran Mór is equipped to handle larger weddings in its auditorium space, it has a gallery area designed for much smaller weddings of 32 people or, in the Fonn Mór (converted vestry), up to 60.

You can follow up with a drinks reception in the gallery, or a wedding meal in their private dining room. It has a private bar and sofa area, as well as a formal seating space. With views over Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens, it’s an ideal small wedding venue and reception space for 15-32 guests, or 60 if you want to use their slightly bigger space: Fonn Mór.

Visit the Òran Mór website for more details.

Wedding car pairing: this small venue combines contemporary and traditional and, as such, a huge range of cars would look fantastic. If you prefer traditional styling, this classic Rolls-Royce would look great. Alternatively, a luxury Mercedes S-Class would complement those who prefer a modern touch.

3. Blythswood Square Kimpton Hotel

Capacity: 64 for the ceremony, up to 80 for the reception

Blythswood Square is a stunning small wedding venue in traditional Georgian styles. You can experience grandeur and luxury, while still having a small and intimate wedding.

You can enjoy a private terrace, ideal for summer weddings, and discounted hotel rooms for family and friends within the venue. It even has a private screening room if you want to show your favourite movie or some family videos!

There are options to have your wedding outdoors too and the whole venue is pet-friendly.

Visit their website for details.

Wedding car pairing: for this luxurious small venue, you’ll want a car that’s just as comfortable and lavish. This American Chrysler will match the calibre of your venue and ensure you arrive in luxury - relaxed and ready to celebrate!

You can find this venue inside the grounds of Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and you get access to the walled gardens as standard, so there are plenty of spots for some stunning wedding photos. The House is an art gallery and exhibition space with beautiful designs throughout.

It was designed in 1901 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, one of Glasgow’s most famous architects, but wasn’t built until 1989. So you can enjoy a truly beautiful venue that combines Modern-period designs with contemporary ones for a stunning effect.

Visit their website for wedding venue details.

Wedding car pairing: this venue prioritises beauty, so we’d suggest hiring a silver Beauford Convertible to match. It’s in the original 1930s style, right from the Art Deco period.

5. The Corinthian Club

Capacity: 60

The Corinthian Club had a multi-million-pound renovation in 2010 that included their purpose-built wedding space.

Suitable for weddings with as few as 12 people, it has a maximum capacity of 60 guests for a sit-down reception. The space is built to make even the smallest events feel grand and luxurious. They have three rooms suitable for small weddings, each with different decor and designs, so you can choose the space that best suits your style.

6. 23 Montrose Street

Capacity: 15-30 guests (depending on the room)
