Hi there, we are considering getting married at Gretna Green - the Mill Forge, this time next year. However, has anyone got married this time of the year in the evening when its dark. How did any photo's come out with it being dark.

I could be wrong but I thought that legally marriages had to take place during daylight hours?

Hi, We got married on 29th October this year at 4.30 because I wanted to get married in the dark, it does limit the photographs but I still got some beautiful ones, speak to your photographer about it first and tell him exactly what you want but most of all do it how you want, it's great in the dark, although we got married at blacksmiths workshop.

We got married at the Mill in the day time, but we took a lot of photos ourselves later on after the ceremony (when it was dark).

We did have some problems getting good photographs ourselves, but your photographer should be able to handle it a bit better. Be sure to speak to them first as certain shots will definitely be more difficult.
