Adunola & Bode Wed

How We Met
by Adunola, the bride
We met in December, 2007 through a mutual friend. I had just gotten out of a relationship at the time and Olabode was like a breath of fresh air. We were inseparable for the 3 weeks he was around for, almost like we had known each other all our lives and then he went away to complete his Masters. I had never been a believer in long distance relationships but to my surprise nothing changed. We spoke everyday (more than twice each day), talked over MSN Messenger, text messages, whatever we had to keep in touch, just like that a year went by and he was back. Fast forward four years later, in October 2012 we went away to the Gambia for a few days and there he popped the question.

The Proposal
by Bode, the groom
Due to our busy schedules, we had a 3 day break in October 2012 and decided to go away for some ‘R&R’. We flew to Banjul, The Gambia and stayed at the Coco Ocean Resort & Spa; a beautiful slice of paradise overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

The Rings! (Yes two Rings)
After several painstaking months looking for the perfect ring, I decided on what I felt was the perfect ring for an immaculate woman; designed with a multi-diamond center encircled by 4 tapered baguette diamonds and 82 round diamonds. Unfortunately I could not get this special ring to Lagos before leaving for Banjul due to some circumstances beyond my control however I hatched a cunning plan to get a second ring just for the proposal.

The Proposal
by Adunola
We were in Banjul, the Gambia for the weekend and the night before were going to leave, Bode asked that we have dinner out but I wanted to order in because I was tired. I eventually gave in and to my surprise we were having a candle lit dinner in a private cabana by the beach. The waves of the ocean, music, it was beautiful (I still didn’t think anything of it). After dinner it took forever for the waiter to bring the bill and Bode was acting a bit jittery, then I noticed a couple of waiters walking towards our table holding cards up saying, “ADUNOLA WILL YOU MARRY ME?” as I turned to Bode he was on one knee holding a ring and asked if I’ll make him the happiest man alive and be his wife and the mother of his kids. I was so shy, in tears and of course I said YES!!!

Right after, Bode said the proposal ring wasn’t the engagement ring and that I will understand when we got back to Lagos. Touch down Lagos, on the way to mine from the airport Bode was holding a small red box he opened it and there it was, The Ring! it was stunning, shining from all angles, my very own Eiffel Tower (that’s what I call it, because it looks like the Eiffel Tower)… I immediately understood why that was just the proposal ring… It was an amazing 3 days.

The bride played a big role in planning her wedding! She has this advice for other couples:
Enjoy the planning together, yes brides involve your groom in the planning the day is all about you both! Try not to sweat the small stuff, you can’t control everything. Just enjoy your day to the fullest, you only get married once (at least that’s the plan) so have FUN!

The couple was overwhelmed when they saw their friends and family share in their beautiful day, genuine joy & happiness all around…

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Adunola and Bode a lifetime of joy as One!

Traditional Engagement

The Traditional Engagement had a Russian theme to celebrate the bride’s heritage (her mother is Russian) – “From Russia with Love” with the colours of the Russian flag as the colours of the day. The decor theme was a mix of both cultures (Russian and Nigerian: Yoruba) with Vodka bottles wrapped with beads in a as the center pieces and the hostesses dressed in replica traditional Russian attires.

    Beautiful wedding, gorgeous bride. Did anyone else go goggly eyed over the little darling gnawing on her mummy’s shoulder and the bride’s (presumed) nephews fast asleep in the car? Too much cuteness!

    I like the bride for keeping her real friends. Not these fake chicks out there that make friendships based on looks and choose bridal trains based on looks. Good to see that there are some Naija people that still keep it real

    Awwww lovely wedding, May God bless their union.

    But BN you no try. After getting us excited about the creativity at the traditional (Vodka bottle center pieces, hostesses dressed in Russian attire) you now disappointed by not including pics…..Abeg duduguy and BN please bring us those pics. Always love to see when people in naija stray from the typical.

    Awwww see Adun o! I’ve known this young lady since she was a toddler, when her dad used to drive her round computer center in Unilag to fall asleep. How time flies! May God bless you and your husband and may you experience ALL the joys and good things marriage has to offer!

    As for BN and the photographer, after the drama about this ring, no close up 🙁
