Gretna Registration Office

The marriage rooms at Gretna Registration Office in Gretna provide an elegant setting for civil marriages and civil partnerships.

Gretna Registration office was opened in 1991 and was then extended in 1997.  This new building was designed by Peter Nelson and his team from Architectural Services, Dumfries and Galloway Council, after winning an in-house design competition. His inspiration came from oriental concepts and the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

They are among the most modern in the UK, combining all the elements of elegance and choice you would wish.

When you decide to be married with us, your day is our pleasure.

You can be married in the Annandale Suite from as little as the basic statutory registration fees, for larger wedding parties of more than 8 persons there is an additional charge of £96.  This fee will increase to £106 for all ceremonies taking place from 1 April 2020.

The Solway suite has been decorated and furnished in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, probably the most famous and original architect of the early 20th Century.

Mackintosh was born in Glasgow in 1868, and in 1896 he became involved in commissions for Miss Cranston's famous Tea Rooms. At the turn of the century he designed the high-backed chairs now associated with Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

He developed the "Glasgow Style", which has been reproduced throughout the building.
