We absolutely adore men who pay attention and ofcourse go out of their way for their women. John definitely came through with this proposal and we’re so excited for these two love birds ! Read their exciting proposal story below as narrated by their photographer, be inspired!
How he proposed:
Ojuewa referred to London as her favourite city (even though she hadn’t been before) and had always wanted to visit along with other locations in Europe. So John (her boyfriend) arranged a weeklong trip for them to Amsterdam -Birmingham in England to visit family – London and Paris.
On Friday 23rd March 2018 they were in London which also happened to be Ojuewa’s 25th birthday. They both love photography and take a lot of pictures but Ojuewa mentioned previously that she takes so many pictures of things but didn’t have any nice ones of herself. John payed attention to this and told her that he would book a photoshoot for her birthday while they were in London.
When John and I were planning the proposal he mentioned that he had noticed that Ojuewa likes white backgrounds (who says guys don’t pay attention to details), so I thought of South Kensington as an area for the birthday Photoshoot. I sent him a a list of exciting, scenic restaurants in London for him to propose at and we mutually chose @coppaclub as our favourite.
The Coppa club were amazing with all communication and even let us have a dome to ourselves. My friend @lokcreative joined us to film the proposal and after we had all ordered food and drinks we went outside to taken some photographs and John down on one knee….Thankfully Ojuewa never saw the proposal coming. 🙌🏾 They were also blessed to have the one day this year that was actually sunny.
Congratulations to this gorgeous Nigerian couple Ojuewa & John from Texas.
