Gretna Green is a small town, but every year 5,000 weddings are celebrated there. In Scotland, everyone knows Gretna Green.

It must be said that the story of Gretna Green is surprising! As far as I know, the story goes back 250 years. At the time in England, a law forbade couples under 21 to marry without the consent of their parents.

So, in order to get married, young lovers fled to Scotland, where the law was not enforced. And the first village after the border was … Gretna Green! Since then, the tradition has been preserved. And Gretna Green is still a Scottish romance hotspot!
