KFA Events Centre Wedding, Lekki | Moyo + Tunde
It only took a glance at her picture on a friend’s Phone. What ensued after was beyond ordinary admiration.
Moyo and Tunde actually got married in 2007 in the United States. This is their Nigerian Wedding.
Theirs happened to be our first wedding of the year. But I’ve been so busy to blog it.
It was a very beautiful eventful day, from the coordinated touch of the Zapphaire Events Team and the grand decors by the BTG Decors to their lovely guests. And the couple keen attention to details, we had shutter crazy moment, capturing every bit of them. I absolutely enjoyed working with them. Thanks Dipo Orimoloye for working with me on this one.
How We Met ~ Moyo
In early January 2005, Tunde saw my picture with my brother’s friend and fell in love right away LOL. He thought I was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. After seeing the photo, he had a strong feeling I would one day be his wife, and he already started referring to me as such!
He got my number from my brother’s friend and we got talking… We spoke about everything under the sun, the weather, my friends, his friends, my future, his future and DANG! We started talking about OUR future… within weeks, I had grown so fond of him and he had same feelings for me too. He would usually “mark register” before heading off to work every day despite that we were hours apart.
I gradually discovered Tunde and I were so alike in many ways, “He is the most lovable, sweet, understanding, caring and kind man I ever met”. The more we spoke, the more we were eager to meet each other. We found ourselves stealing to talk to each other during hectic work hours rather than just when we were lonely! I was looking forward to him coming to Nigeria, as I had never seen him except in pictures.
Then the eagle landed in Lagos and I was all shades of nervous. We were to hook up at a restaurant on Awolowo road Ikoyi and I remember trying on about a hundred different outfits (now that’s exaggerating it LOL) just to look good for him. He got there long before me and by the time I got to the restaurant, he was waiting for me outside! As soon as I saw him, I lost control of my car, and I went up a culvert. He took his intervention for me to gain control!
I found Tunde extremely patient and humble and his dashing looks made it easy to fall completely in love with him.
So we finally met and I must confess that the day was magical. “In no time our love deepened and we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Without any doubts, hesitations or regrets, we went for it.”
By the summer of 2007, we were married at the Registry and I relocated with him to New York, where we lived happily together with our 2 lovely children till we relocated to Nigeria in 2012. Upon the birth of our 3rd child in 2013, we started planning our Traditional marriage and Nikkai ceremony and to Almighty Allah be the glory for the journey so far.
I am thankful for a wonderful hubby, best friend, bae, boo, homie and lover in Tunde. And I am also extremely thankful for my beautiful kids.
