On the 30th of April 2016, in St Gabriel Catholic Church, Mokoka, Ibadan, Charles (groom) and Mary-Ann (bride) made a commitment before God, their families and friends, to stick together through thick and thin, through jolly and bumpy rides, till death do them part.
Reception followed immediately at Agodi Garden, Parliament Road, Ibadan.Don’t they make a cute picture!
Their traditional marriage, which took place on the 14th of November 2015, was at Ben Igwe’s compound, Nenwe, Enugu state.
We’re elated to share all their happy moments today
How They Met.
Bride’s story;I woke up early one morning in December, 2014, to a message on my WhatsApp from a strange number. And of course I replied with the usual “please who are you and who gave you my number?”
He answered only the first question “I am ordinary Charles”. This only got me angry and I immediately told him off. I had no time for such rubbish! Lol
He was however persistent and somehow I started replying his chats and even looked forward to our conversations. Of course he didn’t know this, I was still playing hard chic! Then after some weeks (few days after Christmas I think) I decided to drop by his office and see who’s been disturbing me since it was on my route. Just to be sure he wasn’t one dude with a burnt face or…. well the list is just endless. I dropped by his office, and coincidentally, I saw he was someone I had met over a year before but just joked with him and left. We talked for a few while, before I left he already said I was going to be his wife. Of course I called his bluff!
We kept on talking, then we started dating and I realized what a truly wonderful guy he is, I know everyone says this about their partner but believe me, Charles is really a wonderful guy and if I have any regrets, it’s that I didn’t date him earlier!
6 months later, he proposed and true to his words the first day we met, today, I am his wife.
The beautiful moments were captured by Victor Onuka Photography. Enjoy!
I know right! These pictures look so wonderful the wedding could easily had taken place in Paris!
Happy married life to the couple.
