Our Wedding Story: Rolake & Tolu | Duduguy Photography

BellaNaija Weddings



Yay! Wedding bells are ringing so sweetly on BN Our Wedding Story today! Rolake and Tolu are not only a fun gorgeous couple they’re also the best of friends! Their wedding was such an exciting time – you can feel the love and joy from the pictures and video of their first dance.



How We Met
We met while in the University of Lagos sometime in 2003. A mutual friend introduced us and well, let’s just say it wasn’t love at first sight; she thought he was arrogant, he thought she talked too much.
Fast forward a couple of weeks. It turned out we were in the same faculty but he was a year ahead and in a different department. We got talking and realised we had so much more in common. Anyone who knows Tolu will agree that the guy has a silver tongue…there’s something suave about the way he talks and I could listen to him forever. Okay, so I fell for him.

The Proposal
Okay, so Tolu and I left Nigeria in 2011 for our Masters in the UK. We decided to visit Paris and Tolu left me to plan the entire trip; I picked the travel dates and our itinerary so I really wasn’t expecting anything ‘special’ outside the plan. On the train to Paris he gave me a pink envelope with a poem he had written for me in a card, but this was not completely unusual cos he does sweet things like that from time to time. The next morning, he gave me a second pink envelope with an even nicer poem about us. In my mind, he was just catching the romance of Paris.
Later that night, after a long day touring Versailles, we ordered room service and after dinner he gives me a third envelope, but this time it was a letter, handwritten in silver ink. It was the sweetest letter ever, talking about our history, how we met and the sweetest memories of us. Then the final lines in the letter just took me to a whole new level:

“So today, I ask you for your all; for keeps for always; to make more memories with you as you take your place as Queen of my Castle, the Herald of my future and Mother of our legacy”

My first thought was “hmmmm, shay this young man doesn’t know how serious this his letter is” … and then, I heard our song playing in the background “Alicia Keys – If I Ain’t Got You” at this point the tears just started rolling, in fact flowing! Then Tolu sat down and puts me in his lap, kissed my forehead, wiped my tears and asked me “Do you know what comes next?” Before I could answer, he showed me a tiny box wrapped with a cute bow and asked me to open it. I removed the bow and the silver wrap, then he takes the box from me, goes down on one knee, opens the box and says “Morolake Yoyinsola, my best friend and better half, will you marry me?”

By now I was crying even harder but I managed to say Yes, nodding my head. Then he took my finger and slips the most beautiful ring on it, and held me until I stopped crying.

Like I said, the guy is good at what he does.

For their traditional engagement, Rolake shone in a stunning sequin aso-oke gele with matching accessories. The groom Tolu looked handsome by her side in a khaki and red agbada andd fila. Family and friends were all smiles as the bride’s family accepted the groom’s proposal, to pluck a precious flower from their home.

On their wedding day, the bride wore a show stopping custom mermaid style gown by Couture by Brenda adorned with lace appliques on the bodice complete with clear crystals and embellishments, a silver diamante adorned belt and real feathers lacing the neckline. The groom looked dashing in his custom suit by Mai Atafo, lined with lilac trimmings. The bride later changed into the perfect red sequin dress – which she loved! The couple danced till dawn with their dearest friends and family and looked absolutely dashing while rocking into their newlywed life.

The couple’s advice for intending couples – be best of friends!

9 years is a long time and we have learned a lot about each other to know how to manage our strengths and weaknesses. It’s all about the unity of purpose. Mutual respect for each other and constant communication are essential.

It is easy to get caught up in the boyfriend/girlfriend stereotype without really becoming friends and in my opinion, true friendship is the essence of lifetime relationships.

BellaNaija Weddings wishes the couple the absolute best in love and life!

Rocking First Dance!

The bride says this was the highlight of her wedding day!

“We started out with our song; “If I ain’t Got You”, by Alicia Keys (the same song he proposed to) and then mimed through six other songs which basically told a story of us; boy meets girl, girl fronts, boy tries harder and finally girl falls for him. Each song had quirky punchlines. It was borderline cheesy but we had so much fun…i’d say its better in video!”

    Am not the one that gets blown away by the “fantasy” proposals…all that he proposed at the top of the Eiffel tower business. Once I see that, I just glaze over it and scroll down to the pictures.But this proposal story right here got me! It was so true and heart-felt, bros put true effort into it i must say. This is probably one of the best proposal stories I ever heard. That being said, I wish them the ultimate best in their marriage. Its true when they be best of friends, it really does make for long lasting relationships.
    And that dress! The bride nailed it! She wore the heck out of that dress!

  65. intheoverseas

  101. Hey

    December 31, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Wow soo soo lovely. The proposal got me hard, not that much of a mushy person but this one right here got me! Also I always like stories where couple sorta hate themselves initially . Awwwwww sweet love!! The groom is one hot-stepper and the bride is hot and soo bold. She’s definitely not going to be one of those dulling ladies that can’t give their husband a common dirty lap dance with a sexy outfit. By far one of my best weddings on BN. May God bless and keep their home

  102. Roseline

    January 15, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    The prosposal got me; the groom is definitely a romantic and i love this one. The bride is bold and look like a no nonsense woman.wish the happiness and no regret.
