The registration office at Scotland's wedding capital, Gretna Green, is celebrating it's 25th anniversary.

It opened in 1991 and there have been more than 100,000 weddings there - in the busiest year more than 5,000 couples tied the knot.

Everybody thinks if you get married in Gretna, you must be 16-years-old. I can't remember the last time we had a 16-year-old here, that just doesn't happen.

You get people that have been married second time around and people with a big family connection here, where their mums and dads have been married."
