How we met
By the bride, Temi:
Sometime in 2020, I posted a picture on my Instagram story and he sent me a DM saying ‘Temisan’ and in my head, I’m like who’s this one, have we spoken before? So I opened the message and I didn’t see any previous messages and I thought, Maybe I’ve probably spoken to this guy before and deleted his chat so let me just reply. It was during the lockdown period and we got talking, we didn’t know ourselves but we talked like we had known ourselves for the longest and were just reuniting.
We actually attended the same university but we never met then. Conversations with him were amazing and I didn’t want to ever stop talking to him. He kept on telling me how I’m his wife and we’d get married someday but I’ll always laugh it off. We started dating in 2022. We met for the first time in Lagos that same year and it was all love. He proposed to me on Christmas Day and here we are today.
How we met
By the groom, Olamide:
We got talking in 2020 when I sent her a DM and she replied (Thank God). It was during the lockdown so I invested in getting to know her and she’s the sweetest person ever. I just knew she was my wife (I was too sure). Fast forward to when we first met in 2022 (we had just started dating then), when I picked her up from the airport and I was stunned. Her photos didn’t do her justice… she looked even more beautiful in real life. She’s the kindest, sweetest, most gorgeous, thoughtful and most beautiful woman ever. My missing rib and gentle dove. I had to ask her to marry me the same year.
