Celebrity Weddings At The Mill Forge

Celebrity weddings can cause quite a stir in a small town like Gretna Green. Here we take a look at some of the celebrity weddings which have taken place in The Mill Forge.

Celebrity weddings make you think of A-list guests, the wedding story and photographs sold to magazines and diva-like demands. As one of the country's most popular wedding ceremony venues we have experienced celebrity weddings first hand and seen both the good and bad side of celebrity weddings.

 

Celebrity Weddings - Kerry Katona

Kerry Katona famously married her taxi driver boyfriend Mark Croft on the 14th of February 2007 in The Mill Forge.

Miss Katona was a former member of girl band Atomic Kitten and in 2004 she won the ITV show I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here before embarking on a TV career which saw her feature in reality shows about her life.

The wedding was arranged in secret by the groom with the help of a Mill Forge wedding planner. OK magazine had bought the rights to their wedding and ran a feature as well as providing the wedding photographer. Her celebrity status meant that there was a large number of journalists and photographers all trying to get an exclusive picture or scoop the story. A number of security men were hired to protect the couple's privacy and make sure that the press did not interfere with any other weddings taking place that day.

Miss Katona and her groom were married by a minister in a simple religious wedding ceremony and afterwards had a wedding reception with their small party of friends and family before retiring to their bridal suite. Sadly because of the presence of all the journalists she spent most of her time with us in her bridal suite away from the glare of the cameras.

 


Celebrity Weddings - John Wark

Former Scotland, Ipswich and Liverpool footballer John Wark was married at The Mill Forge to Karen Taylor on the 25th of April 2009. A former PFA Players Player Of The Year and European Young Player Of The Year, he also had a small part in the film Escape To Victory alongside such names as Sylvester Stallone, Pele, Michael Caine and Bobby Moore.

He and his bride Karen chose The Mill Forge as their wedding venue, stayed in our ensuite accommodation and had a wedding reception with us. Pictures were taken by one of the local wedding photographers and they also hired a Scottish wedding piper. When he came to get married he came without any of the celebrity trappings and was very down to earth mixing with others in our conservatory bar and taking time to speak to the people who recognized him.
