“Both Our Parents have been Married for 70 years Combined. We plan to top that”- Haneesa and Umar’s Love Story + Pre-Wedding #Neemar2018

BellaNaija Weddings



The love story of Haneesa and Umar had us smiling from ear to ear. We love love so much.

The groom-to-be met the bride-to-be through his family who always teased him by calling Hannessa his wife. It took Umar three years to be able to convince Haneesa to be his forever love and when he did they both never looked back.

Here is a little back story of how they met. Too cute!

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Haneesa and Umar a love filled life together.

How We Met
By The Groom, Umar

Haneesa and I have an unusual story, considering that ‎everyone in my family had met her long before I did and they always told me they have a wife for me.‎ She attended the same secondary school as my youngest sibling and on visiting days, as I was told, my sisters referred to her as “Umar’s wife”.

Three years! That is how long it took me to convince her to be my wife. No thanks to distance and divine events but what was constant and most amazing was our intellect, kindness, mutual respect and care for each other.

We met for the first time at an urban cafe for breakfast and I remember being at peace and in love. ‎ I got a nod from “meeting her parents”.

Proposal Story
Our proposal was very intimate while we were on vacation in Dubai. ‎ The rest is a love story that we have promised each other to keep, devoid of life’s challenges as we take this leap of eternal love.‎ Both our parents have been married for 70 years combined. We vow to top that by the special grace of God.
