Neil Patrick Harris shares adorable wedding anniversary message

Joe Williams September 8, 2015

The former How I Met Your Mother star shared the post to mark one year of marriage to his husband, David Burtka.

The Oscars host shared his love for Burtka by posting a ridiculously sweet message to his long-term love onto his Instagram account.

“One year ago today I had the pleasure of marrying David Burtka,” he wrote.

“I’m so happy that I did – he’s a truly wonderful man. Here’s to many more laughs and adventures…!”

The Gone Girl star tied the knot last year to his partner of over a decade – with whom he has twins – in an intimate ceremony in Italy.

The pair’s daughter Harper served as the flower girl, while son Gideon was supposed to be the ring bearer.

Speaking his decision to marry, he said: “We were not trying to do it to elicit any kind of reaction from anyone. We had been together over 10 years.

“I think when our kids got to the age when they were having reasonable conversations, where they’re asking lots of ‘why’ questions, then it seemed [important] to be able to have a real clear-cut explanation of who their daddy is — that he’s my husband, it was easier than partner or boyfriend or something like that.

“I just wanted to be able to say nice things about David, to David, in front of the people that matter the most to us.

“It was less about a proclamation and more about a declaration that I was able to share in front of our kids, and that he could do back for me.”

Patrick Harris later revealed that Elton John sang their first dance, and that the castle was a perfect setting for their “I do’s”.

The pair have previously featured in their first fashion campaign together, as well as posing for a insanely cute recreation of the classic Lady and The Tramp restaurant scene.

The family are also renowned for their annual Halloween photographs – and did not disappoint with last year’s Batman-themed effort.
