  • Description

    Several shots of picturesque, romantic scenes at Gretna Green, Dumfries, Scotland. L/S of Mr Macintosh (the proprietor of Gretna Hall walking down steps and greeting a young couple as they step out of a car. They walk inside the Hall.

    Good L/S's of the Hall. M/S's of the wedding service underway at the nearby Blacksmith's. The couple kneel down next to an anvil whilst the Marriage-smith conducts the ceremony. He suddenly strikes the anvil with a hammer which signifies the moment the husband is to put the ring on his new wife's finger. The commentator says 'And they live haphazardly ever after'
