over the anvil

Laurie and Dave, married in the old blacksmith's shop, Gretna Green on June 21st 2007.

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! :)
