Last month, Adam and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. There’s no denying that it’s all been a bit of a rollercoaster since we said ‘I Do’ but on the whole, I think we’ve done alright so far. Year Two brought along a house move, plenty of ups and downs and pretty much everything in between, however, we developed a much stronger relationship as we began to really settle into married life.
I’ve talked quite a bit on the blog about the fact that Adam and I eloped to NYC in 2016 to get wed but realised that I never really touched upon why. With our second wedding anniversary just around the corner, I thought I’d share our reasons with you.

Wedding season is upon us again and most of us have at least one or two special days to attend over the summer months. Our record high was being invited to no less than nine weddings and two christenings back in 2013, so you can imagine the amount of clothes shopping involved.
Along with expense of gifts, accommodation and travel, finding inspiration for fresh new looks can become tiring and there’s only so many times I can get away with wearing the same dress in our small social circle.
In October 2016, Adam and I eloped to New York City and tied the knot at City Hall. I use the word ‘elope’ in a loose sense of the word, given that this decision was not spontaneous nor a secret. We had carried out a little research online beforehand and found that the legal requirements to marry in the state of New York rather daunting. Therefore, I have put together this guide to hopefully help simplify the process for other people who may be considering doing the same thing.
