My Travel Story

Hi everyone.

I made one of the biggest mistakes a man can make in my relationship, I took far to long to let my fiance know just how much she meant to me.

We have been together for almost 6 years and I proposed on Valentines Day, I am the first to admit I was a fool for making her wait this long.

My fiance has always dreamed of getting married just the two of us, she has no interest in the big white wedding and she doesn't care for the all eyes on me approach.

 We have talked often about eloping and the destination that is always top of the list is New York City, my fiance has been there before and truly believes it to be the most amazing and beautiful place on earth. I myself have never been to New York City and it is most certainly on my bucket list.

Me and my fiance both work full time and after recently going through the struggle of house hunting we purchased our first home together, this has left us with no savings and plenty of bills to pay, after lengthy discussions we decided that we would try to save as much as we could but realistically it would be several years before we could even consider trying to organise this trip.

I would be both humbled and honoured to accept even the smallest amount of help that anyone can offer, it would be a wedding that my fiance would truly never forget and it might get me back in the good books for making her wait so long.
