#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_011#BBNWonderland bride Titilope was so excited when she won the Atunbi Photography package at BellaNaija Weddings and Baileys Nigeria‘s WONDERLAND on 10/10/2015! The package includes this stunning pre-wedding shoot, wedding photography and a keepsake photo album.

Two weeks later – this past Sunday, Atunbi Adesanmi, founder and lead photographer, captured the couple in their element at the bride’s family house in Lagos. Titi and her family made Atunbi and his team feel right at home, as her lovely mother spoilt them with special Sunday rice!

Titi’s love story started out in a situation many ladies are in – she put Shola in the ‘friend zone’ for over a year, and then lied she had a boyfriend when he asked her out … how time flies, they are getting married in December.

Enjoy their pre-wedding shoot and love story !

Our Love Story
by Titi, the bride#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_041We met at a karaoke bar. Naturally I do not give my number out in random places, and I think it’s stupid to give a fake number when you can just be honest; but some weird feeling in me (plus my friend eyeing me at the corner) made me do it.#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6543We then started off as friends. Over a year later, he took me out one particular day and asked me to be his girlfriend. #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6469 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_106I probably should have started off introducing myself to you – then, I did not know what it was like to “date”. Friendship I’m great at, but dating… ‘Ki lon je be?’ (translation: what is that?).

So the weird Titi kicked in and my knee-jerk reaction made me say I was already taken. I mean I was comfortable at the friend-zone and wasn’t expecting more.Plus, I just came back from my vacation and an old crush was still talking about having feelings for me. However, Shola was determined and relentless. He teased that my “American boyfriend” wouldn’t last and went from regular friend to amazing sweetheart – I honestly couldn’t resist.#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6492#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_titil1 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_titi1aI accepted this first proposal and then the real one came the following year on my birthday. I never do anything special, but he did that for me which already blew me away. The details of that day are so hilarious, but close to our hearts; I can’t wait to tell our kids *hehe*.#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_032In short, he finally made it to one knee (after most of the alcohol had been passed out), asked me to be his wife, I said YES! #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6292 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6250We kissed, and he got up and to everyone that passed he introduced me as his wife. He is indeed a good man and I thank God every day for hooking me up big time.#BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_010 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6218 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_017 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_007 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_023 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6231 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_055 #BBNWonderland Bride Titilope & Shola Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lagos_Atunbi Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_7U7C6329

    I think jasmine meant “normal” being people we can relate to. Most of the couples featured on bella weddings seem out of this world or plastic if you don’t mind my saying so

    Couldn’t help but notice the cute engagement ring. To all my sisters and sistren waiting for that big rock, all the best with that!
    even heard some ladies go behind the guys’ back and buy another one for themselves if they dont like the one which was given when the proposal was done.

    • Titilope

      October 29, 2015 at 12:40 pm

      hahaha!
      Sometimes friendzone-ing someone doesn’t mean you do not like them enough.
      No marriage may be perfect, but one needs to be properly prepared before jumping into relationships. Take your time… good things come to those who wait/ are patient.

    Hi Titi,

    I just like your spirit, you seem really amiable.
    Friendzone-ing worked for you because your personality is magnetic. Not everyone is like that!!!

    all the best. i pray your husband find the waiting game a worthwhile one for ever. cheers darlyn.

    you may want to send us your wedding pictures

    • Titilope

      October 30, 2015 at 3:58 pm

      Hello Beabea bea 🙂
      Cool name, by the way. lol Thank you for the compliment and good wish. God bless. Husband is alright 😉 he knows what he got (and I believe it’s one of the traits he fell in love with #DontTakeNonsense lol.) Plus, we were friends, yes! Did any of us feel zoned, nope!

      @ share wedding pictures; i’ll let that to the discretion of the wonderful Atunbi and Bella Naija 😉
