Handfasting at Gretna Green

Group Anvil Handfasting Experiences at Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop

Anvil Handfasting Ceremonies

A Scottish tradition since medieval times, Handfasting is the perfect way for couples to affirm their commitment to each other over the legendary anvil. Traditionally part of an engagement ceremony as a promise to marry, handfastings are now popular as an informal vow renewal, wedding blessing or anniversary celebration; but offer a unique opportunity to celebrate a couple's love over the famous Blacksmiths Anvil at Gretna Green.
