We have got their super sweet love story, their pre-wedding photos and of course, lit wedding photos to share with you, enjoy!
from the Bride, Tolu
We met in 2011, I was at the University of Sheffield at thetime, while he went Swansea University. He came to visit a friend who was attending a party at my uni and was staying over at my place. At the end of the night, he ended up at my place somehow and we started talking.
We tried dating after that, I can still remember taking long train rides to visit him (Exactly 6 hours from Sheffield to Swansea, phew). But that did not work out. We eventually had this big argument that resulted in us not speaking to each other for a while.Fast forward to after he had graduated from Swansea and moved to Warwick. I was still at the University of Sheffield.
One day, while I was in the library with a friend we got talking and she kept going on and on about some guy and it happened to be him. So I told her the whole story from the past and she made me call him to apologize.I did and we started talking again. This time around, though, I was in another relationship.
from the bride
He proposed to me at a restaurant in Lagos. He had the area cornered off so we were alone. The love for food is something we have in common.
I was trying to enjoy my meal and he kept staring at me. I was like “Babe, why are you not eating?”Later on, I realized he could not concentrate because he did not want me to choke on my ring (imagine!!). I looked down and noticed the ring on my spoon, then he got down on one knee and popped the question. Of course, I said yes!.
Fortunately, she saw it and I quickly took it out and made my proposal. It was a very special day for me and also for her, her expression was priceless.
