Protecting the health of your family and ours
Update as of 19 June 2020
We have been waiting for news about weddings from the Scottish Government. The most recent announcement (18th June) means that we are still not able to offer weddings. The restrictions only allow outdoor weddings with a maximum of 8 attendees and we are not allowed to offer hospitality, catering, accommodation or other facilities. We know this is not what you want from your Gretna Green wedding. We are expecting the next announcement on 2nd July and will update you when we know more.

Update as of 23 March 2020
The coronavirus pandemic is ripping the heart out of the country and of our communities of Gretna and Gretna Green. In our family business, the welfare of our colleagues is uppermost in our minds. Our team is working round the clock to manage this unprecedented situation; in good faith trying to balance the essential need for social responsibility and colleague welfare with the fast-moving events.
With immediate effect, following the government announcements at 5 pm on Friday 20th March, we have been contacting all wedding bookings and arranging postponements at no cost. We have been overwhelmed by the understanding and support from our couples, as we do our best to ensure that their dreams for a Gretna Green wedding still come true; just at a later date when it is safe to do so.
We had already closed some properties before the announcement and we then immediately closed all bars and restaurants in hotels and other properties.
Gretna Green Ltd is not accepting any new wedding bookings for dates before 1st August, subject to review as the situation develops.
As of today (23rd March 2020), we have closed all hotels. If we are required by government to provide accommodation for essential workers, we will do so. We have also offered property to the NHS.
We are still offering take-away food for our local community from the Blacksmiths Foodcourt and a range of food essentials from the Foodhall at Gretna Green. Our online shopping services, continue to offer worldwide delivery services for all of our usual brands and products, but we are also introducing, daily, more food, groceries and essential items to support our customers is getting the things they need. Continuing of this will depend on demand.
I would like to thank our colleague teams for their support, understanding and remarkable levels of commitments as we navigate our way through this hellish time together. Thank you also to our customers, who are being so understanding.
On a personal level, it is heart-breaking having to do what we are having to do. Please be assured that we will continue to do our best to do the right thing at the right time for colleagues and future customers alike.
