BN Weddings: How has married life been?
Yawa & Yaw: Hahaha a lot work! You hear before you get married that it really isn’t easy, but you never really process it till you are actually in it. However, it becomes easy when you place God first in your marriage…the work load lightens up.

BNW: How do you keep romance alive?
Y & Y: We love to travel… visit new places and experience different cultures. This gives us the opportunity actually spend time some more alone time. However, spending time together watching our favorite TV shows is the one thing we look forward to at the end of each weekday 🙂

BNW: Looking back, if you could change anything about the wedding planning process what would it be?

BNW: Do people treat you differently now you’re married? Do you feel different (being called Mrs…)
Y & Y: Not really. We have amazing friends and family members that understand that we place ourselves first in all things and that we are our number 1 priority.
Yawa & Yaw Sarpong | 1 Year Wedding Anniversary | Ghanaian | Leslie Marie Photography | BellaNaija 010 Yawa (Wife): What I have noticed more of…is that people actually call me by my new last name more often than my first. It actually sounds nice and some getting use to lol.

Yawa & Yaw Sarpong | 1 Year Wedding Anniversary | Ghanaian | Leslie Marie Photography | BellaNaija 009 BNW: What advice do you have for fellow newlyweds?
Y & Y: Don’t sweat the small stuff, forgive easily, be patient and love unconditionally. Most importantly, don’t have high expectations from your partner, they are only human and sometimes can not meet those expectations, so enjoy the little moments and always remember why you said ‘I do’ on your big day.Yawa & Yaw Sarpong | 1 Year Wedding Anniversary | Ghanaian | Leslie Marie Photography | BellaNaija 007

BNW: For the single people out there, any advice for those seeking partners?
Y & Y: Be patient and always have a positive attitude and energy, it will eventually land you an amazing person.Yawa & Yaw Sarpong | 1 Year Wedding Anniversary | Ghanaian | Leslie Marie Photography | BellaNaija 008.Sep 26, 2014
BNW: Best advice you’ve received …
Y & Y: “Enjoy each other.”
