Situated in the Heart of the West End of Glasgow, Òran Mór is a unique venue, offering stunning facilities for a wedding ceremony or civil partnership ceremony. Within the converted church, the Auditorium and Gallery are both ideal for ceremonies and the Private Dining Room can be used for more intimate wedding gatherings. From your initial enquiry through to the completion of your event, you will have one contact ensuring a personal and efficient service. We recognise that each wedding is unique with different requirements and, therefore, we offer complete flexibility including bespoke menus and an accommodating approach to any request.
Beneath the celestial ceiling mural by Alasdair Gray, one of Scotland’s largest pieces of public art, guests can enjoy our fine Scottish food and impeccable service which has put us on the map as one of Glasgow’s leading venues.
Òran Mór is available for civil, religious and humanist ceremonies
The Auditorium is an atmospheric room enhanced by the original stained glass and, as well as retaining many of the original features of the church, offers a contemporary setting in which to hold a wedding. Hire of the Auditorium also includes use of the Gallery (see below). The facilities include private entrance, private bar, dedicated kitchen, disabled access, natural daylight and a stunning original architectural setting.
Capacity: 100 – 275 guests
The Gallery is located in the upper level of the Auditorium (balcony level) and is normally hired in conjunction with the Auditorium for larger weddings. The Gallery is also a perfect location for smaller wedding ceremonies. It is an ideal spot for viewing Alasdair Gray’s ceiling mural.
Capacity: 55 guests
Please note: The Auditorium and Gallery are not available for a stand alone ceremony. A ceremony will only be provided in conjunction with a reception. The Gallery is suitable for a drinks reception after a ceremony, but is not available for a wedding meal due to access arrangements. Please see below for details of our Private Dining Room to follow a Gallery ceremony.
Òran Mór’s stunning Auditorium provides a sophisticated setting for a reception comprising of between 100 and 250 seated dinner guests. The finest Scottish produce is prepared to the highest standards and served by our friendly and professional staff. The Auditorium lends itself equally well to a formal occasion, and an informal party-oriented reception.
The facilities include private entrance, private bar, dedicated kitchen, disabled access, natural daylight and a stunning original architectural setting.
Please note: the minimum number for a wedding reception in the Auditorium is 100, but smaller receptions may be possible on request. Please ask the events team for further information.
The sumptuous Private Dining Room is a beautifully appointed, elegant space perfect for intimate receptions. The room boasts a private bar and sofa area, lift access and views over the Kibble Palace and The Botanic Gardens. The Private Dining Room can be used in conjunction with The Gallery to provide a full day for groups of 15-32 guests.
