The romantic landscape of Scotland’s southern region of Dumfries and Galloway not only provides a stunning scenic backdrop for those looking for the ultimate wedding destination, but it also has a long and storied history as one of the UKs most popular places for elopement. Smiths Hotel and the Gretna Green Blacksmiths Shop lie in the sleepy village of Gretna Green, where English lovers would cross the border into Scotland and be married before the blacksmiths anvil, which served as an altar.
