Interactive Group 'Fun' Wedding Re-enactments at Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop
An Immersive Experience
At the home of romance, what better way to experience the history of Anvil Weddings than to become an interactive part of the story!
After an introduction to the history and scandals of eloping to Gretna Green, your group will take a starring role in re-enacting a traditional Gretna Green wedding, with some 'interesting' vows (which are always a crowd pleaser) and that famous 'clink' of the hammer to the anvil. Made even more immersive, with fun props and character backstories, to help set the scene, we will have your whole group joining-in and laughing along!
2018: $3.70 per person, group rate
...become part of Gretna Green's living history and have some fun.
Offer an unforgettable experience for your clients - exclusive to groups and at no extra charge your group can have fun taking part in a Gretna Green wedding re-enactment. The Blacksmith Guide takes on the role of the 'Blacksmith Priest' and with a little help from members of the group a re-enactment of the legendary event of a runaway wedding takes place. Your group choose an unsuspecting couple of run-aways and a pair of angry parents and the story begins...
The Blacksmith Guides ensure this feature is entertaining and fun; As one commentator put it, "The laughter peals out spontaneously and constantly as everyone is now in a holiday mood". The 'ceremony' lasts 15 minutes and for a special memento, a photograph of the group is offered for purchase.
We are able to operate a voucher system if you wish or accept payment in advance or on the day. Booking in advance is advised. Tel: (0044) 1461 337893.
