Heritage...Romance...Forever... Gretna Green is a village on the Scottish border that is world famous as a romantic wedding destination. First over the border, it became a haven for young lovers following the 1754 Marriage Act introduced in England and Wales. You were forbidden to marry without your parents’ permission if you were under 21. So the young and in love began eloping to Scotland, where it was much easier to marry.

Marry in this ancient building, virtually untouched since runaway weddings began ...

Now fondly recognised as a romantic wedding destination, you can still marry in three historic marriage houses: two that give you Gretna Green on your marriage certificate and one that gives you Gretna on your certificate.

Also in Gretna Green is the manor house of Gretna Hall, built for Gretna Estate in 1710, and later a coaching inn in 1825, it was the first official stop in Scotland for travelling stagecoaches and private carriages. Gretna Hall was also frequented by run-aways desperate to marry, but forbidden to do so back home. It witnessed many romantic elopements as a venue for aristocratic weddings. The picturesque courtyard of this majestic manor house is the venue for three atmospheric marriage rooms. The Old Toll Bar, Gretna, became part of the run-away wedding legacy in 1830, when a bridge was built over the Sark River, redirecting most of the traffic that way into Scotland. The resident toll-keeper in the First House in Scotland became very busy arranging marriages for the many desperate couples that arrived on his doorstep. Today this intimate venue, steeped in history, creates a very special experience for your wedding day.

Introduction

02

Gretna Green is synonymous with Anvil Weddings and it is the Famous Blacksmiths Shop where the tradition of an Anvil Wedding began. Legend has it that if you touch the famous Gretna Green anvil it brings you good fortune in affairs of the heart. It was here that the blacksmith would repair and make tools for the farms and shoe the horses. From 1754 the blacksmith in Gretna Green became notorious for a different kind of forging: joining couples in marriage. Marry in this ancient building, virtually untouched since runaway weddings began and full of magical charm.

From the first phone call to hair and make-up trials, through pre-wedding preparations of tanning and nails to the excitement of your big day, we are here to help.

Your Anvil Wedding and Marriage Certificate Gretna Green Anvil weddings have been much imitated over the years in various venues in and around the local area and beyond. With over 130 years of experience in our family business, we believe that it is important that when you make the choice for your wedding day, you have clear and honest information and you get what you want. If the heritage of your wedding venue is important, we hope that the following helps: If your dream is for a real Gretna Green wedding in a historically authentic building in Gretna Green and with Gretna Green on your wedding certificate, only our family of Gretna Green venues can make this come true. If you have fallen in love with one of our Gretna venues, such as the stunning Water Gardens at Greens or the historic Old Toll Bar, you will have Gretna on your wedding certificate, as will Anvil Hall, a great venue for really large parties. If you are not booking your wedding directly through us, please be sure to ask as some venues are neither in Gretna Green nor Gretna and exact location may not be explained to you clearly. 36

To help you to complete your M10 Form, the table below specifies the venue name and address which you will need to fill in under the “Place” of marriage section. We look forward to helping you make your dream day come true!
