Is there a better excuse for why you should renew your wedding vows than it being your wedding anniversary? Making it through another year of marriage is well worth celebrating – it may have been crazy, challenging, fun, or a year full of finding compromises together. Celebrating another year of being married should be fun and if you share a love of all things raw & outdoorsy – is there anything more romantic than renewing your vows at sunset?!

3) You want to reconnect as a couple

Setting aside some quality time to do something you both enjoy bonds you as a couple and renewing your vows at sunset in Wales can certainly help you do just that! Turn it into a full blown adventure, relive the fun & joy with a second honeymoon and pick one of these perfect love shacks in North Wales to get that adrenaline flowing again or enjoy some (or all!) of the 15 best things to do in Snowdonia on your honeymoon – I know I would!

4) You feel like you need to exchange new vows

Maybe the vows you made first time round aren’t relevant to you both anymore. You may have changed or grown as people or gone through some ups and downs over the past few years; your relationship will have developed deeper and so you may feel that you want to exchange a new set of vows that better reflect how you both feel about one another.
