Why did we choose Gretna? Well it was second time for both of us and the romantic aspect of just eloping and then telling everyone we were married appealed as we had been living together for over 10 years, it had been a dream of mine for many years and luckily hubby was happy to go along with it, yes we upset a few people along the way but your wedding day should be just that the day you both want, a special day to look back on with happiness not regret!!!!
We had a simple civil ceremony last September 2014, we stayed at the Hazeldene Hotel which meant we could walk the 2 mins to the World Famous Blacksmiths for the ceremony, had Au Naturel a couple of local girls to do my hair (thanks Michelle it was exactly how i wanted it despite not discussing it previously) and make up (Laura) on the morning and of course we had Colin Carpenter do our wedding photographs who was fantastic helping to put us at our ease as neither of us likes having photo's taken, we loved them so much we had a hard time choosing for the album but soon had a list of reprints we wanted for family and friends.
It took 10 weeks of planning once we had a confirmed date and time, the hardest part was keeping it a secret from family and friends
Thanks to everyone who helped make the day special xx
