Let us help you plan your dream Gretna wedding

Step 1 - Choose your wedding date
Step 2 - Select the type of ceremony (civil or religious)
Step 3 - Choose your wedding ceremony venue

We recommend the Anvil Hall, a stunning wedding venue. See the video below. We are one of the closest hotels to Anvil Hall which is within a short walking distance. We are also the closest hotel to the Registration Office.

Other popular venues include:
Registration Office - approximately 5 minutes drive away
Old Blacksmiths Shop - approximately 5 minutes drive away Gretna Hall Blacksmiths - approximately 5 minutes drive away
The Chapel - approximately 5 minutes drive away
Mill Forge - approximately 4 miles away (10 minutes drive)

 Step 4 - Organise the Official Documents (M10 marriage forms). These forms should be completed and returned to the Gretna Registration Office, Central Avenue, Gretna, together with fees, up to 3 months and no later than 28 days prior to your wedding. You can book your wedding at the Registration Office for up to a year in advance for an extra fee.

Step 5 - Your wedding day service - We pride ourselves in giving a personal service for your special day. We can arrange and advise you on local facilities available for your big day such as photography, Rolls Royce, horse and carriage, video, kilts, piper, florists, hairdressers, wedding cakes, and all the 101 things to make your special day come true.

Step 6 - Your wedding reception - calculate how many guests will be attending your wedding meal. Weddings and private functions, large or small are catered for in one of our two tartan carpeted function rooms, seating for up to 50 guests. A disco can be arranged for your evening entertainment (subject to availability & terms and conditions). A disco within the hotel will be a private function for your guests only, so you don't even have to worry about sharing the evening with others outwith your party.

Step 7 - Accommodation - book your accommodation. We have 2 four poster bridal suites for you to choose from. Click here to book your accommodation.

Step 8 - Work out a figure of what your wedding will cost you. (We can asssist you on this). To secure a wedding function and accommodation, please note that a deposit is required to secure the booking. Deposits paid are non-refundable and non-transferable. We recommend that an insurance policy be taken out to cover your wedding.
