Onome & Lolu are a match made in heaven!
The couple, who met at a party, clearly only have eyes for each other. Their elegant marquee wedding captured by Ice Imagery was so much fun and we’re delighted to share.How We Met
from the groom, LoluIt had been a relatively boring day and all a young man who just defended his project could do was sleep. I got a call from my pal Nubi about a party at Ikeja GRA, “oh well, this should be fun” I thought to myself as I got into my bro’s car and headed to Ikeja. When we arrived, there was a pretty lady in a pink top and blue jeans there to greet us as we walked in. We got in, had a few drinks, met a few people and two hours later I decided to head home. I stopped by the lady in pink to thank her for inviting me in, when I noticed the scent of her fragrance, “you smell nice” I said and she smiled back saying “thanks”. Little did I know she would one day be my wife.
It was a Sunday afternoon and I was meant to be back in Port-Harcourt, at least that’s what she thought. I made a surprise visit to her at home knowing she would be back from church, and found my way to the living room where she was watching a movie on her laptop. That was surprise number one.
I bought a couple of things for her – two jumpsuits, a chic whizz sandwich (which she absolutely loves) and of course, the ring. With each passing hour I gave her one gift after the other until it was only the ring left. Surprise number two.
Of course I kept the ring out of sight till it was about time for me to leave, I then got on one knee and pulled out the ring. She sat there staring at me for about a minute, then she said “Lolu, I hope this is not some kinda joke?” Of course I laughed and said, “No baby, would you marry me?” Surprise number three!
Of course she said yes, if not we wouldn’t be writing this, would we? 🙂The couple fused the bride’s Igbo, Urhobo and groom’s Yoruba cultures at their traditional wedding, and went for romance with pink and white for their white wedding day.
