She’s Walking Down the Aisle at Fifty! Gladys & Ian’s Pre-wedding Shoot



We absolutely love unique love stories.

The gorgeous bride-to-be, Gladys is counting down to walking the aisle with her lover, Ian this Saturday. You know what makes it even more beautiful, just as she is looking forward to getting married, she is also counting down to celebrating her 50th birthday.

Yes, you read right, the golden 50. Their love story reminds us that there is no age limit to finding love.

So it is a count down to the #GladysIan1319 wedding happening tomorrow. The bride-to-be, Gladys shares how she feels getting married for the first time at 50. Read all about it below:

Media Room Hub shared this statement for the couple:

The feeling of getting married for the first time at fifty is indescribable and we can tell you guys that her husband to be, Ian feels on top of the world to have her by his side. Despite their pasts experiences, Gladys and Ian never for a second, gave up on love and it’s so amazing to see two hearts bound by love agree to stay by each other forever.

Like JoyBell C. Says, “You can talk with someone for years, every day, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever. Connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”

    Bellanaija, please and pleasee… your site has become so difficult to navigate. It’s great that you’re trying to upgrade and all, but it shouldn’t make visiting your site seem like a chore. You’ve surely noticed how you get less and comments on your posts. Kindly do something!

      Yes , I totally agree with you. This used to be my favourite site. But now you can hardly click to read stories its frustrating. Please check and do the needful.

      I thought so too. It should be better not worse. The stories are all over and hyper confusing.

      I thought the new layout was a mistake, but here we are few months later, and it’s still up. I wonder how people can ruin a good thing. BN, if no one has told you, we are telling you now. This layout is terrible! It is hard to navigate your site and new stories are not obvious!

    @Ebi, thanks for this. This is my first comment since this new site – i hate it and i know most people do. Its just hard to navigate and less fun to look through. The old blog style format is the best …with the number of comments visible at the side of the posts. This is just awful. Also, the way they keep emphasizing her age in this post – is it an achievement to walk down the aisle at 50? Na wa ooo…we find meaningful love when we find it …… Meanwhile, the babe is smoking hot though …that was my take away, though I didnt like the sheer top with bra under – you are too hot to make that kinda extra effort na …. Bye….
