Happy Genealogy Day! Really the 8th of March is Genealogy Day! We spotted programmes such as Heir Hunters on the telly this past week and it's got us thinking about the many stories that we hear every week from visitors who have a family connection here to the Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop!

If you've swung by Gretna Green, you may have spotted a tall dark-haired woman scurrying around the shop.......
Meet Linda O'Brien, our retail manager here at Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop.

There's been a wee bit of excitement and a buzz in the air around the Gretna Green Famous Blacksmith Shop and Smiths Hotel since Saturday!
We can hear you wondering why?

It's time to wave good-bye to January and welcome February with open arms! Whilst it may be the shortest month, it's certainly got its fair share of celebrations of love, romance and happiness!

We get many a query here at the Famous Blacksmith Shop asking if it would be possible to organise a 'surprise' wedding.....sadly, however romantic this may seem (yes, we've also watched the Youtube video of the surprise proposal and wedding on one day!), legal paperwork says nope! (Find what you need to get married at Gretna Green here.)
However, if you're already married and wish to surprise your spouse with a secret blessing......YOU CAN!
One of our very own, Margaret Salaman, did just that to celebrate her 10th wedding anniversary! Awwwww! Just like Mags did, arranging a secret blessing can be the unexpected romantic gesture and a wonderful way of celebrating a special anniversary!
