Onome and Akinlolu got married last weekend, 25th April, 2015, and here are a few photos from their intimate traditional wedding, courtesy of Ice Imagery. I shared their beautiful prewedding photos weeks ago, see HERE. They had some of the cutest save the date ideas! READ their love story, how they met and the proposal below…enjoy!
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 I 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.
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, if not we wouldn’t be writing this, would we?
Congratulations you two! Wishing you a blessed marrige.
