Famous for runaway weddings, the Gretna blacksmith and his anvil have become the lasting symbols of weddings still held here. As a "forger", the blacksmith marries hot metal to metal over the anvil, in the same way the anvil priests forged a union between couples who had eloped in love.
The first wedding I've shot - it was a lot of fun, both the days and the photography!
Big congratulations to the wonderful couple, may this be the last time you two get married! :)
