It is nearly 50 years since we first opened our doors, originally in the town of Annan, a few miles north of Gretna Green. In 1992 we moved to our current location, opposite the Gretna RegistrationOffice, establishing one of the first full time Wedding Bureau's in the UK. We organise not only Gretna Green weddings but also many large scale castle weddings throughout Scotland.
The Mill Forge stands in its own two acre grounds, two miles from Gretna Green and boasts thirty-three en-suite bedrooms, a private wedding ceremony venue, a restaurant with three function rooms andextensive gardens. The design of The Forge allows you the best of both worlds, as you can walk down the aisle to the anvil where your wedding will take place in true Gretna Green tradition. The wedding ceremonies are performed by either a minister or a registrar.

Located on the Scottish / English border, Gretna Green is world famous for its runaway marriages and in the mid nineteenth century there was much rivalry between the various marriage houseproprietors. The Gretna Chase Hotel was built by John Murray, an extremely successful businessman in the marriage trade, and tenant of Allison's toll-bar. Completed in 1856, Murray built the hotel opposite the toll-bar. It proved very popular with clients, being the first in the area to offer stabling for horses.
The release of white doves at your wedding symbolises the commitment between a husband and wife to support and love each other for a lifetime. Many couples include doves as a way to express their loveand devotion to each other. The Bride and Groom may each hold a white dove. After giving each other a kiss they release them together to symbolise the beginning of their new life together. Or alternatively you may wish to release the birds from a decorated cage or basket.

I never set out to be a photographer; it is something that has slowly developed over a number of years from being the annoying child with the throw-away Kodak taking ages to get the composition 'justright' through to the teenager being inspired by stunning Swiss scenery on a school geography trip and now an experienced wedding photographer whose real enthusiasm still lies with beautiful landscapes. Many hours and days can be spent trying to capture the 'perfect' image.
