Vow Renewals

Renew your Wedding Vows at Gretna Green

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, as you choose to share your life with your loved one and take your first steps into your future together as newlyweds. But what if you could relive that special moment? A Vow Renewal is a chance to reaffirm your love to one and other, either in an intimate and private ceremony for two, as a larger event with family and friends!

Handfasting and renewal ceremonies are a popular request here at Gretna Green, the original home of romance in Scotland since 1754. What better way for you to rekindle the flame of your relationship than to visit the Famous Blacksmith Shop at Gretna Green and renew your vows over our traditional marriage anvil

Handfastings and Vow Renewals... What's the Difference?

We realise that there are a lot of terms associated with vow renewals, and it can be very confusing to understand the difference! So let us help to cut through some of the fog!

Handfasting 

Conducted by one of our Blacksmiths Guides, our traditional Anvil Handfastings take place over the famous anvil here at Gretna Green, and you can choose how formal or informal you would like your ceremony to be. You can write your own 'blessing vows' to each other, or simply allow us to bless your union in our unique Blacksmiths way. Click the button below to find out more about Handfastings.
