The Famous Blacksmiths Shop, situated at the heart of Gretna Green village, is the world-famous, historic home of the anvil wedding.

Today, the original home of romance remains the heart of Gretna Green, and is home to two separate marriage venues – the Original Marriage Room and the Forge Marriage Room.
A truly historic wedding venue in Gretna Green, the Original Marriage Room is presented to you just as it would have appeared in the 1700s, when the Blacksmith Priest married runaway lovers over the original Anvil. This storied marriage room can accomodate weddings of up to 50 standing guests.
The Forge Marriage Room is a newly-built venue with history at its heart, decorated with artefacts from the era of the horse-drawn carriage.

An iconic Gretna Green wedding venue, Gretna Hall was first built as a private manor house in 1710, and later became a coaching inn several decades later. Gretna Hall was the wedding venue of choice for many of the noblemen and ‘well-to-do runaways’ of that era. Today, Gretna Hall remains a perfect wedding venue, in addition to a 4-Star Hotel, boasting three separate marriage rooms for weddings of all sizes.
The Courtyard Room is an elegant contemporary venue set within the historic courtyard of Gretna Hall. Candlelit for the perfect romantic atmosphere, the Courtyard can host weddings of up to 60 seated guests, and a further 20 standing guests. Couples wed here over our traditional marriage Anvil, which is situated at the heart of the venue.
With its 19th-century doors, flagstone floor, and whitewashed walls, the Coach House conjures images of runaway couples arriving in horse-drawn carriages in days gone by. Today, an original carriage, set behind the marriage Anvil, makes a stunning background for this venue, which accomodates weddings of up to 45 seated guests and 25 standing.
The Cottage at Gretna Hall is an ideal venue for smaller parties. Couples marry over the Anvil in front of a beautiful floral arrangement in and around the old cottage fireplace. Following the ceremony, couples enter into their own private garden where photographs can be taken. This intimidate marriage room can accomodate weddings of up to 8 guests.
