Published

Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.49Last month we featured Foluso George & Tunde Leye‘s pre-wedding photo shoot inspired by their professions.

The bride Foluso @yoursfashionably is a designer and she made all her outfits for the shoot and for her wedding including a stunning two-in-one wedding dress – a mermaid gown with a tulle pink skirt for a ball gown effect.

The groom Tunde is a writer – he writes fiction on his blog tlsplace.wordpress.com, and has a self-published novel, Golden Sands. He also sings.

The creative couple met on Twitter and it’s been “happily ever after” since 🙂

We’re delighted to share their wedding today with some commentary from the bride!

Before that, here’s some wedding advice from the bride,

  1. Get a planner, can’t be over emphasized!
  2. Make a priority list e.g. things you’d never be able to change after the D-day against things you can still do later
  3. Buy comfortable shoes but make sure they are super gorgeous!
  4. If you can afford it, have options on certain accessories
  5. Things may not always go as planned, get a grip, the most important thing is getting married!
  6. Most importantly, fast and pray ‘cos the devil is always lurking around when good things are about to happen!

BN Weddings wishes Foluso & Tunde a beautiful married life!

Tunde: “When something is made for you, every detail fits perfectly.”
On the 20th of September, God willing, I’d be marrying this beautiful girl I met on Twitter! She’s a fashion designer and definitely the one for me.

Foluso: “From fans to friends to future partners”

How We Met
I first knew of Tunde in April 2012 when my cousin had sent me a link to his blog, (they were friends from church). It was his debut online series ‘Finding Hubby’. I fell in love with his writing moreso, it was a very relatable story, but since I’m not an avid reader, I stopped going to the blog when the story ended.

Then in December finally, after that same cousin of mine had given me a thousand reasons to join Twitter, I found one more – I was going on there to get first hand info about my Ex. And then I found Tunde Leye, I’m like “oh the writer!”. So I started following him.

One afternoon, late April 2013, he had tweeted about bad network, hence was in an awkward position in another room in his apartment.

I replied the tweet saying that I was also in the same position in my brother’s room for the same reason. So he responded asking if I was a cousin of Tinu George’s having seen my name, I answered in the affirmative and that was how we got talking.

He said immediately (as though he had been waiting for the opportunity) that he’d plan a meeting soon and within three weeks of chatting everyday, we met on May 12 at La Mango, GRA Ikeja.

Things I like about Our Meeting

1. I like that I found him when I wasn’t even looking, even when he and my cousin were friends, we never got introduced and things just played out on their own.

2. There was ‘no long thing’. On our first date, He told me straight up he wanted something really serious. And that was well understood because from our chats he had identified the difference between ‘dating’ and dating seriously.

The Proposal
by Foluso
It happened on the afternoon of Saturday March 15th, it was two weeks to my 30th birthday.

Foluso & Tunde | The Tailor and Writer Pre Wedding Shoot | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija Weddings 0.L.P-16(1).02

I was home relaxing although in the midst of workmen because my mum was remodelling the house, mostly for our introduction scheduled for Easter Monday, wedding plans were in the works so I knew a proposal was coming soon but I really thought he’d make it a birthday something.

That’s why when he showed up, I didn’t suspect anything. Naturally we just started chatting about the introduction party. I had mentioned that I hadn’t told my friends yet since he hadn’t proposed officially and in that instance, he got up and said I should come to my studio to give him the books (that I had borrowed from him for a shoot).

Foluso & Tunde | The Tailor and Writer Pre Wedding Shoot | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija Weddings 0.L.P-8.13

I was wondering ‘cos he had come many weekends after the shoot and I had told him to sort out his books but he didn’t listen. Well, I followed moments after and typically, I continued with what I was saying about not having told my friends since he didn’t respond and was seemingly engrossed with his books. Then he justed started laughing and I’m like “what’s funny?”, then he goes “you’ve not told your friends about our introduction and you still don’t have a ring on your finger…awwww”, raising my hand and really laughing.

Foluso & Tunde | The Tailor and Writer Pre Wedding Shoot | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija Weddings 0.L.P-9(2).14

I moved away from him forming sulking since he was making fun of me. Then he pulled me to himself and said “oya sorry lemme sing for you”. I’m like, “I don’t want to hear any song”, rolling my eyes in my mind-

“wetin concern singing for this matter now?” He said he was serious as I sometimes ask him to sing, so I said ok. He held me close with my head on his shoulder and started singing Luther Vandross’ ‘Dance With My Father’ whilst stroking my hair and kissing my face, did the last verse in his own words “…I would love to be your husband as long as I live. Now I’m going on my knees…”

and it was in that moment I saw the opened box with the ring in front of me, it happened so fast I didn’t know where it came from. Then he went on one knee and slid it on my finger. I was too surprised to talk.

What I Like About Our Proposal
Even though I was expecting a more dramatic proposal knowing the kind of things he writes about, I ended up loving the way it turned out- more private and intimate.

  1. I like that it happened in my house and in a room which holds many memories for me. Its the same room I had cried myself to sleep many times heart broken. It’s also where I launched off my dream of fashion designing, moving from a bedroom to a fashion workshop.
  2. I like that he honoured my late dad in his own way with the song. He asked if I knew why he chose that song and I nodded.
  3. I like that I was truly surprised for the first time ever! Because I always figure things out somehow. Even though I knew the proposal was coming, he pulled it off when I least expected!

Foluso’s Advice for Singles

  • When it comes to relationships, you can’t be too careful. Don’t fight it and don’t generalise. Let God take care of you.
  • Comparison is the killer. Don’t compare your relationship with another. Be patient and understanding.
  • Pray together. Possibly, set aside a day when you fast together. It works!

Tunde’s Story
How We Met
I had known about Foluso for about a year before we first talked. Like destiny, different people in different areas of my life knew her closely, but we had never met.

First, her cousin Tinu was my very good friend from the church I grew up going to and she always talked about going to Foluso’s house. I had even seen pictures of her and thought, all these fine girls sha. ‘Take one’, I didn’t listen to the nudging.

Foluso & Tunde | The Tailor and Writer Pre Wedding Shoot | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija Weddings 0.l-p-45.20

Then one of my colleagues grew up with her. I was very good friends with this colleague and I had seen Foluso on her DP a couple of times as well. ‘Take two’, I still didn’t listen.

Then I discovered she was very close friends with a friend’s cousin. We talked about her, but I still didn’t hear.

Thankfully, in spite of my ‘non-hearing’, social media brought her to me. Like a blessing in disguise, MTN’s epileptic network led me to tweet about it. She responded, and all the previous bells rang in my head. So began three weeks of chatting non-stop. By the time we met at La Mango, I knew it was her and I asked her out. So, my writing brought me my wife.

“My dress oh my dress! First, let me say that I really didn’t plan to make my dress myself, but the hubby encouraged me to, he thought it’d be good for business. And since I knew the kind of dress I had in mind had to be custom made, I took the challenge!

I’ve always known I didn’t want something all the way conventional and it had to be versatile too! Hence, my pink and white two-in-one dress it’s having everything – being the princess bride and still getting to show some curves in mermaid style.Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.14 Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.15 Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.9 Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.17c Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.18 Foluso & Tunde Leye | Yoruba Lagos Nigerian Wedding | Laphy Photography | BellaNaija 0.18a“One of the highlights of my wedding was walking down the aisle. It was very emotional for me since dad wasn’t there to walk me so my brother did and gave me that hug I’d never forget just as we got to the altar before taking my place beside Tunde who had been peeping.”

    48 comments so far, and not one on how fine the brides brother is! That’s strange for a Bellanaija wedding post these days.
    The 2 in 1 wedding gown is a total dream. Good job! Congratulations to the couple, they look so in love. May God bless their marriage with all their hearts desires and more.
