An application has been lodged with Glasgow City Council for a licence to hold civil wedding cerem-onies at the venue, opening up the possibility for couples who met and shared unforgettable gigs at the Barrowland to get married there.
The venue has been voted the best in the UK in a Radio 1 poll and is repeatedly praised by bands and fans.
Other unusual wedding venues in the city include Oran Mor, House for an Art Lover and the Renfrew Ferry.
The idea for the Barrowland came about after writer Nuala Naughton, who has written a book, Barrowland; A Glasgow Experience, suggested to its manager Tom Joyes that she'd love to get married there.
Nuala, 52, said; "I was writing the book and the deadline was brought forward, which meant I had to postpone my wedding as there was too much to do.
"I asked Tom to write a foreword for the book and in his last line he said he was going to apply for a licence so I could get married there.
"I thought it was the most rock 'n' roll place anyone could get married."
The book is being launched at the Barras on Glasgow's Doors Open Day on Saturday, September 21 - the day Nuala will marry her partner of eight years, David Shepherd, 46.
Nuala added: "We have both been married before and didn't want to make a big thing of it.
"But we hope to be getting married in the Barrowland on Doors Open Day, which is going to be great."
A decision on whether to grant the licence will be taken by the council next month.
Barrowland manager Tom Joyes said: "This is definitely aimed at gig goers who have come here over the years.
"And when Nuala said it would be great if she could get married at the Barrowland, we decided to go for it and apply for a licence."
