Witnesses for a Gretna wedding?

We are now both over 50 and our children have flown the nest (well at university anyway). We never got married but now, after over 25 years, we have decided to take the plunge. We want to do it completely privately and so have booked the registry office in Gretna Green for just the two of us.

So - we need to get a couple of witnesses! Our wedding is at lunchtime on the 19th December 2014. We wondered, if perhaps someone out there might consider helping us out?

We know it is a strange request but if we can find someone who lives close enough for it to be reasonably convenient then it would fit beautifully with our plan (after so many years of constant company we want the time for ourselves and want this to be our day exclusively - we plan to tell the children when we are all together on Christmas Eve). We also don't want to have to pick one set of friends to accompany us.

We would be absolutely thrilled to get an offer of help.

Thanks

From previous threads others seem to have just asked passers by or tourists who were thrilled to be part of a ceremony

If you get no joy, give me a shout nearer the time. I'm down there every fortnight or so.

But usually, asking locals/tourists will suffice.
