Get ready for a long ride with Onome and Lolu’s beautiful love story and wedding photos which happened a few months ago.
From their ‘Formal and beach side‘ pre-wedding photos to the ‘Igbo bride meets her Yoruba groom‘ traditional wedding photos and of course the white wedding courtesy of Ice Imagery , we have got you covered.
The groom, Lolu, shares with us their love story:
How They Met: It had been a relatively boring day and all a young man who just defended his project could do was sleep. I got a call from my pal Nubi about a party at Ikeja GRA, “oh well, this should be fun” I thought to myself as I got into my bro’s car and headed to Ikeja. When we arrived, there was a pretty lady in a pink top and blue jeans there to greet us in. We got in, had a few drinks, met a few people and two hours later was on my way home. I stopped by the lady in pink to thank her for inviting me and I picked the scent of her fragrance, “you smell nice” I said and she smiled back saying thanks. Little did I know she would one day be my wife.
The Proposal: It was a Sunday afternoon and I was meant to be back in Port-Harcourt, at least that’s what she thought. I made a surprise visit to her at home knowing she would be back from Church, and found my way to the living room where she was watching a movie on her laptop. That was surprise No1. I bought a couple of stuff for her – two jumpsuits, a chicwizz sandwich (which she absolutely loves) and of course the ring. With each passing hour I gave one gift after the other till it was only the ring left. Surprise No2.
Of course I kept the ring out of sight till it was about time for me to leave, I then got on one knee and pulled out the ring. She sat there staring at me for about a minute, then she said “Lolu, I hope this is not some kinda joke?” Of course I laughed and said “No baby, would you marry me?” Surprise No3!!
Of course she said Yes, if not we wouldn’t be writing this, would we?
Advice to other Couples: Take your time, have fun, enjoy the moment, pray together
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
