"Getting married in Gretna Green has a romantic legacy, spanning more than 265 years, with couples coming from worldwide to be a part of the next chapter in our story."

As Scotland's most famous wedding venue, the Famous Blacksmiths Shop stands at the heart of Gretna Green village. Built in 1713, the Blacksmith's Shop has been hosting Gretna Green weddings since couples began to elope to Scotland in 1754 from England and Wales; where marrying under 21, without their parent’s consent became outlawed… so beginning the ‘Anvil Wedding’.

""The legend of the marriage anvil began as the Blacksmith Priests would strike their anvil as part of the wedding ceremony - forging the lives of the two lovers together in an unbreakable bond."
