A year ago we decided to get married at Gretna Green and travelled up from Kent with family and friends. We were married on 29.6.2014 in the famous blacksmith's forge and everything was superbly and expertly organised by Smiths of Gretna Green. We can highly recommend the professionalism by all the staff who helped us organise our big day and thank you to them all. We had a package for 22 people which included a delicious and beautifully presented 3 course meal with wine (compliments to the chef and his staff), followed by coffee and delicious Scottish tablet. The wedding cake was beautifully decorated and very tasty which we enjoyed after our supper of bacon and sausage baps with chips much later the same evening. My bouquet was beautiful with white roses and thistles (again compliments to the florist) and my husband had a thistle buttonhole. The piper at the forge played beautifully and was much enjoyed by our guests especially those who had travelled from abroad. We were delighted that Sandie Jamieson was able to officiate and marry us in a wonderful light-hearted and yet traditional marriage. Thank you so much to Sandie for a relaxed and beautiful ceremony.
In addition my husband and our three sons hired the whole kilt package which again was extremely well organised. While three outfits fitted well, one did not however the ladies in the shop saved the day by sorting out another outfit which fitted perfectly. Thank you to them too. I personally would like to thank the nice lady who is part of the forge staff and kindly came to my rescue when I had a problem with my dress!
For anyone reading this and considering getting married at Gretna Green, we can highly recommend Smiths at Gretna Green as extremely good value for money with guaranteed success due to the expertise and attention to detail by the staff. Many thanks again to everyone who was a part of our big day. xx
