Vicky and James, The Mill, Gretna Green
Date: 27th October 2010
My first time at Gretna Green, well, at least since I was a wee boy. Gretna is famous for marriages because in Scotland couples have always been able to be married anywhere while in England the Church held all the cards; a bit like a trades unions closed shop! Couples in England and Wales used to elope to Gretna, just over the border in Scotland, so they could be married "in secret".
Well, those days are gone now, but Gretna remains a destination for a wedding. Vicky and James decided their day would be celebrated here, at The Mill, a purpose-designed wedding venue complete with Forge, Anvil, a water-wheel and more modern requirements such as catering, bar and disco.
Vicky is a relation, one of those 2nd-cousin-twice-removed relations to me (any relation beyond mother, father, brother, sister leave me completely confused) and I was delighted to offer to shoot her wedding. I met her husband James for the first time earlier in the year and he's a fun guy, if a bit off-the-wall, but when they are together Vicky just laughs and laughs with him and he can't get enough of her; camera or no camera.
