Lovebirds, Shola and Adeshina met on the 31st of August 2012 and got married a few weeks ago.

Check out these photos from their court wedding, Nikhai and wedding reception.

Their love story:

I hope you know that every time I tell you to get home safe, stay warm, have a good day, or sleep well what I am really saying is I love you. I love you so damn much that it is starting to steal other words’ meanings

The lovebirds met through one of Shola’s friends, Lamide. She had just got back from that fateful afternoon when Lamide visited her and while chatting up, he teased her about her boyfriends.

When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us. I love you the most

More like “awon oko e nko” and she replied saying she had just a boyfriend not boyfriends.

He teased her further by saying “Is he one of all these pencil jeans guys in School?” and she said No.

“I don’t do Pencil guys, they are not always matured”

And that’s how the name Adesina came into their discussion.

I want you. All of you. Your flaws. Your mistakes. Your imperfections. I want you, and only you

“I have a matured guy for you then. He saw your photos on my phone and he really wants to meet you, he likes you alot..he is melting for you”

and she teased him in yoruba saying “hehe, let him melt till Jesus comes o”

I could never say how much I like you, and just how special you are to me. But I can say that my world is all smiles whenever I am with you. I love you a lot.

The discussion kinda ended there until 4days later. Lamide called again to tell her that Adeshina was pestering him on her case….so Shola eventually agreed to have him give out her phone number to the ‘melting’ guy.

you captivated my soul, now everyday I want you more

And then he called!

“Around 7pm on the evening of that same day, my phone rang and when I picked it up, the caller turned out to be Adeshina.  He said “Babe, I am Adeshina, got your number from Lamide…” I was angry because he used the word ‘babe’…but after he apologized, we started talking.

I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything

He said ever since he saw my picture on Lamide’s phone he had not been feeling fine and I responded by asking him to go and see a medical doctor so that the Doctor could help fix him up…and then he said that, “What I mean is that I have been thinking about you since I saw your photos, you make my heart go ting-a-ling-a-ling, you dey make my heart go kedike…”

Sometimes, it’s hard to find words to tell you how much you mean to me. A lot of times, I don’t say anything at all. But I hope someday, you’ll understand, having you is what I live for

Unfortunately for him, I was in a relationship then so I told politely told him off and asked him to stop thinking about another Man’s girlfriend.

If I knew I would be falling in love with an angel, I would have searched for you harder and found you sooner.

But he didn’t quit, he replied by saying that he was sure he will stay date me eventually.

I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

He started calling me all the time and we would gist endlessly for hours…eventually i fell in love with him! He was able to talk me out of the previous relationship i was in..i broke up with the other guy and chose Adeshina…and I do not regret the decision.

I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.
Thinking of you keeps me awake. Dreaming of you keeps me asleep. Being with you keeps me alive

Things got on fast between us, and today we are married!

Court wedding:

I look at you and see the rest of my life in front of my eyes.”
