Smiths Hotel at Gretna Green


We are planning on getting married at Smiths Hotel later this year and was wondering if anybody has attended a wedding there? We have over 100 guests so we thought it would be easier to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue.

My best friends married in April in Gretna Green. The service was held in the Old Blacksmiths (very intimate and beautiful) and the wedding breakfast was held at Smiths. We all stayed at Smiths too. The food served for the wedding breakfast was excellent and I believe the hotel were very helpful in planning an evening surprise for the guests - a casino event. Bar staff were excellent and continued to serve until the wee small hours. Everything surrounding the wedding weekend at Smiths was fabulous.

Hi Boo,

you'll just love Gretna, we got married there nearly two years ago (70 guests)at The Forge, had a great 4 days....by the way don't forget to check out the shopping village,i got some fabulous bargins including a pair of LK Bennet sandles for my honeymoon.Jax

p.s Watch out for the escaping cows they held my car up for 15 mins... very funny though!!!

Good luck with it all.

Hi Boo

My sister got married at the Blacksmith's Shop on Monday and the reception was held at Smiths. It was perfect with great food and service and the tables were beautifully decorated. You'll have a wonderful time there. Best wishes A.
