It is not unusual to find Brides and grooms exchange handwritten notes on the morning of their weddings, but this note from a Lagos bride is the sweetest!
Damilola Daodu who got married to the love of her life, Jimmy, two weekends ago, wrote
“To the love of my life, i am so happy that today i officially become your wife, i am so grateful for your life and i am so happy to be your wife, you are my king and you are my world”
Videographer, Lanre Esho who captured the beautiful moment had this to say “We love to post dance videos and very candid moments of an event but we cannot ignore the essence of a union. The words we vow on that special day, lives with us for the rest of our lives. Dami danced, grooved and partied hard, but also expressed herself with some strong words. One of those weddings we had outmost pleasure capturing.”

The happy bride
Here a few tips on how to write the perfect note to your groom on your wedding day too 🙂
There are no rules — but there are details.
“The best thing is to be open, honest, and speak from your heart,” explains marriage therapist Dr. Jane Greer. “Tell your partner how much you love them and especially why you love them, and what makes them so special, exceptional, and important to you.”
Make a list of everything you want to convey first, so you don’t leave something out.
“Some things a bride may want to say to the groom in her letter are how thrilled she is to be starting their life together, how happy she is to have found a soulmate with whom to share her life journey, and how delighted she is that he made her his choice and found in her the love and commitment that she shares with him,” Greer offers as examples.
Write it when you’re feeling inspired, but when you have several minutes to dedicate to the task.
“The night before or the morning of could both work, depending on the bride,” Greer says. “Sometimes, it can be smart to do it ahead of time so it doesn’t get lost in the hustle and bustle of the day. But on the other hand, you could do it after the wedding itself — you may have more special details and moments you may have shared during the wedding to weave into the letter and make it more meaningful.”
