Helping you to plan the perfect wedding in Gretna Green this March 2018
Are you can already engaged, with your wedding planning folder (yes we know you have a crazy scrapbook or at least a Pinterest board), bursting at the seams? Or are you still waiting, (im)patiently for your other half to ask that all important question (we’re only a couple of years off another Leap Year)? Whatever your situation, our annual wedding fayre extravaganza, this coming March really is a wonderful day out, and a chance to get to know Gretna Green.
The whole day has been carefully planned to give you the chance to visit all three of our hotels and the Famous Blacksmiths Shop visitor centre. You will have the opportunity to experience everything that the North West wedding scene has to offer, as well everything that Gretna Green have to offer; from our gorgeous, 3 and 4-star hotels and wedding venues, to our wedding planning team, kilt hire and wedding favours to name a few!
You will start your day at Gretna Hall, our newest addition to Gretna Green, where you will be met with a big Scottish welcome for registration. Your next stop will be Smiths, our 4-star, boutique hotel, just around the corner, where all of our exhibitors will be ready and waiting to share with you their wedding treats and talents!
The third stop, is just a few short paces across the road from Smiths, to the Famous Blacksmiths Shop; in all its historic and romantic wonder! As you step through the doors, you will instantly feel the tingling buzz of over 250 years of history, and as you walk in the footsteps of the thousands of runaway couples before you, to reach the famous anvil; don’t forget to touch it for good luck in love.
In the afternoon, you will make your way to our third and final hotel and the fourth stop on our tour – here at Greens Hotel. This is where you will find our demonstrations, including “how to wear a kilt”.
All through the day, you will have the chance to meet and chat with our experienced wedding planning team and maybe even get a chance to meet with the Houston family themselves in our VIP room; as well as sample a selection of dining treats from all of our hotels and, of course, take home a wonderful goody bag to remind you of your day at Gretna Green!
To make things even better in 2018, we are giving you the option to pre-register; to allow you, even more, time to explore and enjoy Gretna Green on the day. If you would like to be the first to hear when pre-registration opens, then please sign up for our wedding fayre newsletter below!

High Tea (tea or meat tea) is one name for the early evening meal. It is associated with the working class and is typically eaten between 5 pm and 7 pm. High tea typically consists of a hot dish, followed by cakes and bread, butter and jam. Occasionally there would be cold cuts of meat, such as ham. The term was first used around 1825, and “high” is used in the sense of well-advanced (like high noon) to signify that it was taken later in the day than afternoon tea. How interesting ….
Best news? It’s now available here at Gretna Hall! Treat yourself to high tea from 3-6pm – choose from a selection of soups, hot dishes, scones and of course tea or coffee to finish.
Fancy something a little lighter? Why not try the picnic menu? Sit looking down over the green fields over the village out towards the Solway and even the Lake District on a super clear day!

Available daily from 12noon to 3pm – rain or shine! Although we’ve got fingers and toes crossed for a sunny summer, if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, we’ll whisk everything inside and your picnic will be waiting for you in our cosy lounge!
