How they met:
I’ll always remember the day we met and how what was supposed to be a random evening turned out to be the day that will change everything!…
It was one lazy Sunday where I decided to have a lie in and head out to an evening service later on. After googling local churches in the area, I finally found one and yaay it was a Hillsong…I’d never been, so was pretty excited. I went and invited my friend to join me like halfway through. So my friend came at the end of the service and dropped a text saying he was at the church exit…so I scurried off to meet him and on my way out couldn’t help but notice this really good-looking, neatly dressed guy talking to a bunch of girls happily rocking their chairs and giggling throughout the convo. I remember thinking “yeah yeah, all these guys that come to church to look for babes” (true hater..lol)…Finally, I found my friend and was quite excited as I hadn’t seen him in a while. I said we should go grab some food and that was when he told me to chill as he came with a friend….so there we were chilling until Mr friend came…yeah, you guessed it…it was Mr really good-looking, neatly dressed guy! Lol
We exchanged pleasantries and all headed out to dinner together. Boy, was I taken aback by the demeanour of this guy I had sized up like what, 10 mins ago! His Very unassuming, humble, selfless and gentle character came as a surprise (well, you can’t blame me). We talked about everything at dinner…the usuals, life, relationships blah blah…somehow we got talking and he asked me to come out to dinner the following weekend…and the next and the next…like literally hung out every weekend after that…before I knew it, I found myself living this fairy tale with a guy I believed only existed in my wildest dreams! Let’s just say God does make dreams come true indeed! I found the love of my life and so lucky to be in love with my best friend and the most amazing person I know! super excited about where this journey takes us Fo…let the love story begin!…
From how we met, being in a committed relationship to marrying Temi just leaves me on a high. I knew I wanted to start this journey with “my Temi” as I fondly call her. We had planned a holiday to Spain in September and I thought it was the best time, also considering that it was going to be her birthday weekend. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the trip. I was so so gutted. The resort had really nice views overlooking the sea and I had thought everything out – so perfect in my head. Now although I had a scheduled trip to london a few days later, I knew that wasn’t going to make it better. I was really in for it!
A few days into my holiday, I started looking out for the perfect plan b. I reached out to a videographer and he came up with so many proposal themes and ideas. I remember he wanted us to go paddling and then pop the question. I was like no way, true to Temi, we would have had our boat capsized. And so it happened, we were home and it just felt like the right space and time. I asked Temi to be my wife, and she said yes whilst doing the chicken dance, laughing and crying at the same time. We just knew it was time to start something new. The only way is up for us Temi. Loving you has been the best thing yet. It’s an honour to have you in my life.
Such a lovely couple! Congrats you two, wishing you all the best in your marriage.
