Warning... Only read on if you're a TRUE ROMANTIC at heart... :) Amanda contacted us recently after hearing about the removal of the lovelocks from the Ponts des Arts in Paris, concerned that her lovelock at Gretna Green might also have gone...
Luckily we were able to reassure her.... She sent us this lovely story! Fabulous to hear from the VERY first couple to place a lovelock on our bridge, it's such a great story!

Turn to any news source this week and you'll most likely have spotted at least one post or story mentioning the removal of lovelocks from the famous Ponts des Arts in Paris. But fear not! Whilst the bridge famous for lovelocks in Paris, the Pont des Arts, may be lovelock free, there are still other places to honour love....including right here in Gretna Green!
