Renew your wedding vows at Gretna Green

Celebrating a special wedding anniversary? Looking for the ultimate gift?  

If you're looking for the perfect way to celebrate an important occasion or reaffirm your love for each other, then arrange a unique, Scottish Anvil Blessing right here at Gretna Green, the Original Home of Romance. Ideal for vow renewals and special anniversaries, our Anvil Blessings & Handfastings take place over the famous Gretna Green blacksmith's anvil, placing you right in the historic footsteps of centuries of couples before you. And, just a stones-throw away from 4-star Smiths Hotel, an Anvil Handfasting is a fantastic addition to your luxury hotel stay.

With an Anvil Blessing & Handfasting, you will experience your own unique ceremony with a traditional Scottish handfasting using our official Gretna Green tartan sash, boxed after the ceremony to take home. Plus, with brilliant upgrades available, such as fizzy afternoon tea or a Gretna Green hanging heart ornament, you can tailor your experience to suit your own special day.
