World Famous Blacksmiths
Our Perfect Day
Mr John Sharp
We got married at the World Famous Blacksmiths on Tuesday 22 July 2014. What a perfect day we had. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the venue was just magical. All of the staff were brilliant. Myself and my wife were nervous and they made us feel totally at ease. Thanks to everyone, including the piper, registrar and photographer for making our day so special!!

Linda & Steve Fisher
My husband and I married here on 20.01.01 We eloped with 39 members of our families... including 3 grand children! Our 6 year old Grandson was the Best Man. Confused? :) Dont be... this wasnt our first marriage obviously! But believe me... we had THE most wonderful day... in fact the whole weekend was fantastic. It was easy to arrange, and the ceremony itself was beautiful. I felt as special as any young bride... and it truly is..THE best place to get married! I still remember, every single minute of it!!
The Blacksmiths Cottage
My husband and I married 28th August 2014 with a few close family and friends. From arranging the wedding up until the wedding day, we received all the help and advice as and when required. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional. We had a perfect day - thankfully the weather was warm and sunny, the service was lovely and the grounds for the photographs were beautiful. A huge thank you to everyone involved!
Gretna Old Parish Church
A different place to marry
We got married at this venue on 13.8.2010, and although we were small in company (just my wife and I joined by my parents), it was just a perfect day. Apart from all more touristic and public venues to marry at Gretna, the old Parish church gives you a more tranquil and remote spot. Although we had to first plan the ceremony via a telephone call from our home in Germany, Reverend Haston was just well prepared and gave us the chance for a final discussion on the day before. We learned that there is no tradition in the Church of Scotland for a wedding verse chosen by the couple, but thanks to Reverend Haston he just involved it in his sermon. He really is very empathic and really gives you good alternatives on parts of the ceremony. He even copied the long version of the vows on the evening before the wedding, so we were able to say them word by word not understanding every word of an Scottish accent. And we will not forget him knocking at the wall of the registry after the signature procedure giving a sign to the organ player to come to his last musical crescendo.
Thanks for all hospitality received and making this day unforgetable

My husband and I both fell in love with Comlongon Castle on our wedding day. It exudes warmth, romance, beauty, and of course a rich history. Our ceremony here was amazing, and the grounds provided a beautiful backdrop for photos. We would both recommend this venue for anyone struggling with the decision. Cheers!
