#BBNWonderland – Baileys Nigeria and BellaNaija Weddings‘ enchanted event on 10/10/2015 still lives in our hearts.
We loved meeting 33 beautiful and accomplished #BBNWonderland brides from all over Nigeria, and we are happy to celebrate with them on their weddings.
#BBNWonderland bride Yinka calls her husband Rotimi “Temi” because, as she says, “he’s mine” 🙂 They met at work, and on their very first lunch date, he said he would marry her. Yinka literally ran away after the lunch came to a close, but they kept in touch. Finding out he was older was another hurdle, but she found herself missing him, and the rest is history.
His proposal was creative, but let’s not spoil it, read the sweet story below!
The happy couple got married on the 6th of December 2015 at Time Square Events Center, Ikeja, Lagos.
How We Met
I was assigned to handle a training in Temi’s office. As I was going up the stairs, he was coming out of his office and our eyes met. In my head I’m like, “yeah! He’s cute but he is probably married”, so I smiled politely and went to do my training. I half expected to see him during the training but he did not turn up!
Two days later, he walked up to me and offered lunch. I was hungry so I said yes. During lunch he said he was single and right there and then, he said he wanted to marry me. I just smiled, ate his food and literally ran away.
We kept in touch after that, but when I found out he was way older and this made me uninterested.
I travelled the week after and I knew it was my opportunity to get rid of him, but somehow I found myself missing him, so I called him and the rest they say is history…
I came to Nigeria in June for my sisters wedding and that period was also one of his friend’s birthday. There was a couple’s game and we were addressed as Mr & Mrs Adebayo. I was so shocked that I did not know when I said, “we are not married yet”, but the next thing I know, Temi was down on one knee with no ring in his hand and a very charming smile, and he said,“Yinka I want you to be my Mrs., I want you to be Mrs. Adebayo”, I promise you, I had never felt happier in my life. This man is all I have ever dreamed of. The love I have for him amazes me.
BellaNaija Weddings & Baileys Nigeria wish Yinka and Rotimi a beautiful married life!
