The secret admirer that became the soulmate | Read Temitope & Olawale’s love story (First wedding photos)

Temitope and Olawale got married last weekend and their wedding photographer, Klala has just shared first photos with us!

Also read their beautiful love story as told by the bride below:I would say destiny brought us together as the story I’m about to tell defines the word destiny.

Wale had been my secret admirer since the year 2007 after he saw me walk past the football pitch in Lagos state university college of medicine. He was a medical student and I had gone to visit my cousin. According to him, he had asked his friends if they knew me and fortunately for him, one of them happened to be my neighbour which made him think he had won a jackpot, lol..

So many years passed during which he tried reaching me through his friend, facebook, phone calls, yahoo messenger, bbm but I wasn’t available.
Fast forward to 2010, wale posted an Italian statement “tu se tutta la mi a vita” as his personal message on bbm and I had a translator on my phone which I downloaded because I always wanted to learn foreign languages. The statement means “you are all my life”. Hmmmn, I decided to ask him who was his life not because I was interested in knowing but because I wanted him to think I understood italian, lol.

Anyway,  the day wale got that message from me asking him who was his life was one of the happiest and most shocking days of his life as that was the first time I ever messaged him. Apparently, his life was AC Milan football club as he’s a very big fan. Not anymore though, as I’m now his whole life. He was a happy man as I was his Italian teacher for the day and  he seized that opportunity to ask if he could get me a gift for teaching him Italian which I rejected but after so much persuasion I accepted and he got the opportunity to meet me in person where our love journey started.

We started dating in 2011 and we have brought so much joy to each other. In year 2013, wale asked me to be his wife and here we are. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Now see photos from the wedding:
