|Today, I choose you to be my husband. I accept you as you are, and I offer myself in return|
Olamide and Abiodun’s beautiful love story started their journey right from primary school and Facebook further played a major role in it.
Their prewedding and wedding photos were shot by top photographer, Seun Kilanko.
Here is the story of how they met:
“Permit me to speak (or write as the case may be) for Biodun and myself, and to throw it all the way back. It all started when this cute little boy (yes, I thought of him as cute even as far back as then) was transferred from another school to not just the school I was attending, but as fate would have it, my very own primary 4 class.
I want to spoil you, encourage you and love you. I want to be there beside you as you are fulfilling your dreams – – – – encouraging you every step of the way. I want to make you laugh when you’re having a bad day. I want to make you fall in love with me every single day. It’s not always about what you can do for me but also to what I can do for you.
|Have you ever looked at someone before and thought “I really love you”. They are just talking or humming or reading a book or watching a movie or laughing or something, and there is something about them in that moment that makes you think “I just really love you”……|
|Date someone who gives you the same feeling as when you see your food coming from a restaurant….|
Biodun was super quiet and easy going. We turned out to be those 2 little kids who would “hi” at each other every now and then, even though I was silently having a major crush on him. Primary school ended and our quest for a higher level of education threw us to different parts of the country, which meant losing contact was inevitable.
|There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.|
|Nothing compares to the stomach aches you get from laughing too hard with your best friend|
|They say the real power of a man is the size of the Smile on the face of the woman next to him.. so there you go!!|
All the while though, my mind kept wandering to my little primary school crush, wondering where he was and what he was up to. Cutting the long story short, Facebook happened! – of course, we had to be one of those couples who would benefit from the genius innovation – and we got back in touch. (Go ahead, you are permitted to imagine the joyous leaps of backflips that was going on in my insides and the adrenaline rush bursting through my veins the moment I got the the friend request). I’m not sure how it happened but he found me and I’ll always cherish that he did.
|And because I could watch you for a single minute and find a thousand things that I love about you…..|
|And in the end, the Love you take, is equal to the Love you make….|
|You have bewitched me body and soul, and I love, I love, I LOVE YOU.|
|A couple that pouts together, stays together 🙂|
|There is a madness in loving you, a lack of reason that makes it feel so flawless.|
Four years ago, we officially started our journey. The Proposal Bee (as I fondly call him) had always known not to throw an elaborate-I’m-all-up-in-people’s-faces kind of proposal. I knew a proposal was brewing but I had no idea when it was going to happen, neither did I know how. So, it happened that Bee came to pick me up from work on a Friday evening to go watch the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s epic Half of a Yellow Sun novel.
|And happily ever after will be their story!!!|
|His eyes… His Hair…. His Touch… His Voice.. Him!!|
|And If I know what love is, it is because of you!!!|
|And one thing frees us of all the stress and pain of life: That’s love… So smile.. cos I’m in Love with you!!|
I couldn’t have suspected a thing because he was calm all through the duration of the movie. The movie ended and just as we were walking towards the car, Bee started with all the romantic sweet nothings. We got to where the car was parked, I turned, to my surprise, I saw a guy with a camera. Before I could figure it out, Bee was on one knee, asking me to be his wife.”
Now their wedding photos!
We say congratulations to the beautiful couple!
