‘It will be 16 years this year, which feels crazy in so many ways. I often think about us and the glue that binds us together. Every relationship is so unique and different; what works for one couple may not for another.
‘It’s a bit like developing your own personal recipe that you adapt together and personalise along the way.
‘I love nothing better than finding out what my friends/parents believe the secret to their relationship success is – and would love to hear your wisdom too!
‘Mine would have to be remembering to carve out real time for each other within the madness of everyday life; everything from making time to talk over dinner at home to date nights. Whatever you do to keep the spark alive, keep it up!’
Alongside the sweet message, Holly shared a photograph of herself and Dan kissing on the beach, as well as a shot of her walking down the aisle on her wedding day.
Holly previously gave an insight into her ‘fairytale’ wedding day as she reflected on the occasion while marking her and Dan’s 15th anniversary last year.
She told how she and Dan had snuck into the marquee ahead of the ceremony and shared a sweet moment together simply taking in the beauty of the day.
In a post on Wylde Moon, Holly wrote: ‘It was a magical, nervy morning getting dressed with my mum and my sister, and I’ll always remember the moment my dad walked in when I was ready to go and he burst into tears, it immediately set me off.

‘I’ll never forget the overwhelming feeling of love that hit me as I walked into the church and everyone turned around and smiled, that’s just unforgettable!
‘Lastly, I remember sneaking a peek into the marquee with Dan whilst we were having a moment to ourselves, and being bowled over by how beautiful it looked and smelt.’
Giving advice to newlyweds, she also urged people not to take their partners for granted and told them not to live in ‘parallel lanes’ to one another.
Holly originally dated TV producer Dan while working on Saturday morning children’s show Ministry Of Mayhem, before exchanging vows in 2007.
Ahead of her 16th wedding anniversary, Holly has been enjoying a family getaway to Portugal with Dan and their three children – Harry, Belle and Chester.
The family have been enjoying some quality time together at their £2million holiday home, where they spend most summers.
When Holly returns from her long holiday in September, This Morning will be centred around her, after ITV bosses decided not to make a big money hiring to replace Phillip Schofield.

The Daily Mail revealed Holly will have rotating co-hosts when she fronts the under-threat show from Monday to Thursday, rather than chiefs poaching a bigger star from a rival show or channel.
Insiders at This Morning say that they will mostly be Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle, though Holly will be joined sporadically by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond, who currently host on Fridays and holidays.
It means that Holly’s dream that she would be paired with Alison, 48, is over because she is too busy to commit to working four days on the daytime show, insiders said.
Holly is to sign a new contract ‘any day now’, which will be even more lucrative than the £700,000 deal that she is already on, it has been claimed.
