Set amidst the scenic splendour of Bellahouston Park, House For An Art Lover is a unique wedding venue located in Glasgow, Scotland. This supremely stylish setting takes its inspiration from the architectural designs of leading Art Nouveau artist and architecture Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Developed from original designs dating back to 1901, this distinctive space offers sleek interiors bursting with tasteful pops of colour. From the private sculpted garden to the expanses of the 169-acre park, this is an ideal setting for those with a taste for fine aesthetics and picture-worthy backdrops.

Facilities and Capacity

House For An Art Lover is a mesmerising property, offering much in the way of colourful history and pleasing visuals. On the first floor, to-be-weds have exclusive use of The Mackintosh Suite, which contains three signature spaces. The Music Room offers an extravagant setting of vibrant colors and a terrace overlooking the parkland. Here, couples can choose between two layouts to accommodate up to 80 guests for a wedding meal. The room can also be used for a ceremony of as many 110. Nearby, the Main Hall/Dining Room is a combined space with a maximum capacity of 120 for a seated dining experience. Layout options take full advantage of the Main Hall's impressive two-story space, magnified by its dark-panelling and soaring ceilings. Discerning guests can discover signature details throughout these spaces reminiscent of Mackintosh's designs. For the evening reception, the Art Lover's Bar is an ample dynamic space for 150, featuring a dancefloor, lounge bar, and staging area.

    Beautiful venue, one room more beautiful than the next. Staff extremely helpful and make sure everything went to plan .
    Only down side was due to the venue being in public park, difficult for guests to park. Perhaps that wee car park should be reserved for House for Art Lover only, as a few folks were dog walking and had parked up.

    Im Still so Amazed

    Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I'm still so amazed. Everyone warns you that something will go wrong, but I really have a hard time thinking of anything at all! Robert and Scott did an amazing job taking care of us and all of the guests.

    Our wedding in June was so perfect

    I'm writing on behalf of myself and Allison to thank you and the whole team at House for an Art Lover again for making our wedding in June so perfect - the help and support you provided to us while we planned our wedding from overseas was so much appreciated. Likewise to our Master of ceremonies on the day, he really made it so easy for us to enjoy our special day to the fullest.

    We can't thank you enough; we can't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. We've recommended HFAAL (not that anyone we speak to hasn't already heard amazing things!) to literally everyone we know who is engaged or planning a wedding. We couldn't be happier.

    Truly Special

    Our wedding day was wonderful and I would like to thank you, Robert, and all of your amazing colleagues for the day you gave us. So many of our guests told us they’d had the best time at our wedding; that they loved the venue, how helpful the staff were - it was truly special getting married there. It’s about a year now since we first visited, looking for the right venue for our big day. You were the first place we looked, and we knew pretty much then and there. Thank you for your help over this last year, it’s been so appreciated.

    We hold such Wonderful Memories

    We can't recommend the beautiful House for an Art Lover enough as a wedding venue. All of the team from the House have been great, from the moment we visited it as a potential wedding venue to the day itself.

    To be honest, we didn't really entertain any other venue. We went straight to the House as we love Charles Rennie Mackintosh and loved that it was a Southside Glasgow venue. We also liked that the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party would all be in the same place (and that there was parking available for our guests).

    Throughout all our planning we have been really well supported by Hannah. She contacted us when decisions needed to be made and our emails have always been answered promptly.

    The day itself was brilliant. I don’t think the House for an Art Lover organised the sun shining into the Music Room as we signed the marriage schedule, but they did everything else. From the moment we arrived we were in calm and capable hands.

    The day ran smoothly from the arrival of guests and the ceremony to the wedding breakfast and the evening party. Our guests all loved and appreciated the venue and the beautiful grounds and they loved the delicious food cooked by the House chefs. The quiet room was a perfect addition for guests who needed a more low-key environment while those who wanted to, danced the night away in the cafe on the dance floor.

    We hold such wonderful memories of our wedding day and we will look forward to visiting the House for an Art Lover many more times in the future.

    Everything went like Clockwork

    I would like you to pass in my personal thanks to all concerned for an excellent wedding last Saturday. All our guests raved about the venue and the smooth and professional way your team handled the entire event. The quality of the food was excellent. Everything went like clockwork and any requests for help and assistance were attended to promptly and courteously. Clearly customer service is paramount at HAL and your team are well-trained and polite. All in all we had a great day-to-remember. Thank you. Again, many thanks for all you help and for the wonderful time you gave us.
