Our Wedding Story: Seun Teniola & Qudus Adekoya

Who knew that studying was not just good for your brain but great for your heart…

Today on BN Our Wedding Story, we feature Seun Teniola & Qudus Adekoya. Seun and Qudus met one night while they were studying for exams at the university and as you can see from this feature, it blossomed into something beautiful and extraordinary.

That is the beauty of love, you never know where you are going to find it….

How Seun & Qudus Met
By Seun
We met way back in school – at the University of Lagos in 2003. I was in class one fateful night studying for an exam, he was sitting right in front of me, he turned back, saw me, stood up and asked if he could sit next to me, I laughed and I said – “No”. He ran after me when I finished studying and we became friends and our relationship blossomed from there.

The Proposal
He popped the big question to me that same year we met, but I took it as a joke because I was still in school. So he made it official in 2005. On my birthday, he asked me again; this time, on his knees. We were going out for dinner to celebrate my birthday and I was ready and wondering what was delaying him. He was already on his knees waiting for me to find him. I was so excited, I cried and I said, “YES”. I was still in school then so my parents suggested we wait till I graduated from university, completed youth service and started to work before he could take me away…My husband waited for 5 years before he was allowed to marry me and I love him so much for his love, patience and support!

    May God bless their union. Love the fact that the bride and her bridesmaids wore classy covered-up outfits without the usual over-cleavaged, bum and tum displays and still looked slamming! Thats what you can acheive with a little imagination. So tired of the garish overly-voluptuous dresses at weddings. So, this really impressed me.
