“I think we all came away with a feeling for the lifestyle of Solway residents, the history and geography of a rather hidden area, which should so rightly be treasured.” – D. Hasted, Lancashire, UK
“Monday’s tour was brilliant. I didn’t think you could fill a day along the coast with so much interest.” – Millie, Carlisle, UK
“I totally enjoyed the tour, as someone from Canada who knew nothing about the Solway coast. I liked the excellent diversity of cultural and natural heritage stops that we made during the day. Fiona is well-versed in knowledge of the area. It was a fascinating day!” – Paula, Ontario, Canada
“The landscape, history and nature of the Solway coast is amazing. We learned about the Romans, early Christianity, the Reivers, the death of King Edward I, all the way through to the world wars and the Cold War. It was a wonderful day. Fiona’s passion and knowledge made this a really special and memorable day out.” – Ted, Penrith, UK

A NICE DAY FOR A WHITE WEDDING FAYRE
On a snowy Sunday morning in March, the team at Gretna Green were busy preparing for the much anticipated Wedding Fayre Extravaganza.
With finishing touches in place, the doors opened to a crowd of very excited (but very cold!) future brides and grooms, all coming to seek out inspiration for their big day. And inspiration was certainly what they got!
Smiths, Gretna Hall and Greens at Gretna were packed full of exhibitors displaying their finest products and services.
All of our soon-to-be-married couples were given the opportunity to browse a series of carefully curated stalls set up by local suppliers, all hand picked by our expert Wedding Team. Couples could build their dream wedding day, with tours of our three hotel venues giving our guests an insight into the luxurious bridal suites available. Our lovely Wedding Team were on hand to answer any questions and chat through all of the options available, taking the stress out of wedding planning.
Visitors were amazed by the wedding décor ideas on show, including beautiful floral decorations from Gretna Flower Basket – the perfect way to put your stamp on the wedding venue.
Next, the important bit – catering! A delicious array of food was available to sample from canapés, prepared by our very own chefs and wedding cakes by Jenny’s Cakes, to delicious sweet treats supplied by Glen Urr Ice Cream and So Sweet Trees. Our sugar levels were kept up during the day so a huge thank you for the free samples – yum!
Soon to be brides were drawn to the display of elegant wedding gowns courtesy of Carol’s Bridal Boutique and the glistening jewellery by Nicolson & Coulthard. Our in-house salon, Spoilt at Smith’s, demonstrated how to create flawless bridal makeup which gave our brides lots of inspiring ideas.
For the grooms, Weddings Silver Lady Wedding Cars and Tartan Carriages showcased a range of lavish transport options to get the couple to their venue.
Visitors enjoyed dancing on a pixel LED dancefloor from Northern Star Events whilst listening to popular hits from Stephen Chatterton’s Jukebox.
The day was enjoyed by all and was a huge success for Gretna Green.
