How We Met
from the bride, Ebun
We met in 2006. My sister was meant to go on a date but could not go without me (THOSE WERE OUR RULES…LOL!!). She insisted on her date bringing a friend; that friend happened to be Omolade. We had a blast that evening and connected instantly. However I had to leave the country for my university education, so we kept in touch. We spoke almost every day for years and always spent time together whenever I came back for holidays; he was that special person that I couldn’t “do without”. Upon moving back we decided to take our friendship to another level, we were inseparable. I would say fate and that strong bond (friendship and love) kept us together.
We have known each other for about 7years and what has kept our love is our special friendship. Apart from being lovers, we are friends. He is my best friend, I can tell everything and anything without hesitating. He is the most understanding person I have ever met. I always say love is not enough in any relationship or marriage; there is more to it. He makes me feel special, wanted and so loved. His positive vibe and hard work keeps me going.
Well well well. LOL. We always knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. On the 14th of February 2012, the Hubby called me at about 6.30am in the morning. I was still fast asleep. He said to me that he was so ill and had a bad tummy upset. I started to panic. I was like okay we need to go the hospital as he sounded in pain and very serious. He then said he actually could not sleep so decided to drive down to my house to see me and so I could take care of him. LOL. So I quickly ran downstairs to open the door. LO AND BEHOLD as soon as I opened the door he was on floor, holding his tummy (still acting) lol!! I held his hands trying to lift him up of course with my sleepy self. He told me to wait. I started getting very impatient. I saw him dip his hands into his pocket bringing out a box. I was like what’s that, he opened the box and brought the ring I had always dreamt off. It was so pretty and sparkly. I could see DIAMONDSSS!! Lol… I covered my face screaming what are you doing with tears in my eyes. He asked me to marry him. I remember saying “ARE YOU SERIOUS”… It was tears of joy. I stretched out my hands and he said you still haven’t answered my question…. I then shouted YES…
On Our Wedding Day!
From Omolade, the groom
I was the happiest man on earth. I was happy getting married to my best friend, the love of my life, the queen of my heart. We were both filled with joy on our special day; after all the drama of planning our wedding. THANK GOD FOR MAKING IT ALL POSSIBLE.
From Ebun, the bride
I was happy, excited, grateful to God for keeping us together, I felt all sorts of happiness that morning and throughout the day; especially when he looked into my eyes when he saw me. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was late to church so I knew he was going to be very upset.. I have a problem with keeping to time. When he saw me at first he was frowning but then I smiled and said calm down its our big day and that was it.. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!
Advice for other couples,
“Just take everything easy, relax, and enjoy the moment. It only happens once!”
For the traditional wedding, the couple wore the most gorgeous aso-oke, gold and wine with festive floral embroidery.
At the white wedding, the groom was the bride’s something blue, and the bride was a knockout in her strapless dress from Nigerian Label Love, Tims, and a head turning fascinator from John 3v3.
BN Weddings wishes Ebun & Lade a blessed and beautiful home!
