Loretta and Niyi remind me of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor; beautiful, powerful, stylish, classy yet very down to earth and simple. The first thing that catches your attention about Loretta is her beauty then her simplicity and as you get to know her more; her spirituality shines forth. She is such a complete woman; a Proverbs 31 Woman, a Daughter of Zion.
Niyi on the other hand is a gentleman to the core; there is no pretense or faking it in this dude, what you see is what you get and above all, he has such a beautiful heart. Everyone is drawn to Niyi; he has been that way since primary school. I celebrate you both and I pray that God will continue to bless and keep you.
Enjoy their pre wedding pictures and story...
In my opinion, three years is a long time to get to know someone. Somehow Niyi made it seem a lot shorter. I met him towards the end of Uni and at a point when I had no plans to be in a relationship. My focus then was getting a degree and moving on to greater heights. BUT! We happened and everything in me felt at peace with him. Also being the spiritual type, I was more than certain he was the one.
Fast forward 2 months, we planned our first official date in January of 2013. We agreed to meet up at Euston station while I was on my way from Manchester to spend the weekend with a friend and now bridesmaid, Susan Omeiza. Ever the gentleman, Niyi after dinner offered to drive me all the way to her house in shooters Hill as he didn’t feel comfortable with me taking the public transport on a snowy and cold wintery evening. I was intrigued by the gesture and obliged to his request…
When I saw her for the 1st time, I kind of said to myself Whao! Who’s that cute young thing! At first I wanted a friend we had in common to play cupid but then I thought naa… I can do this! We randomly started chatting and I instantly found myself captivated by her innocence. I went and stalked her social media platforms and I saw pictures of her and a guy whom I at the time thought was her boyfriend and I was like ouch…with that sinking feeling hard on my knees… in my mind I was like “that was over before it started!”
..A short while later we randomly got chatting again and I asked “so how’s your boyfriend? The fine yellow paw paw I saw in one of the pics in your profile” Naturally with everything crossable in my anatomy crossed, hoping she’d say “oh he’s just a friend”. I got my Eureka moment as he thankfully turned out to be her only brother.
