Happily ever after: Tolu Onabanjo weds Gbenga Runsewe

Love is indeed beautiful...

Tolu and Gbenga began their journey back in 2005 when they were both students and course mates at the University of Lagos. Many waters, they say, cannot quench love so even after they graduated, the relationship continued. They sealed their 7-year courtship by tying the knot in a lavish romantic ceremony witnessed by family and friends on 4th and 6th of October 2012 respectively.

The colors of the day were red and yellow and this ran through the entire wedding, from the decor to the cake to the beautiful floral center pieces, the bold wedding theme was unmistakable. Parasols lined the aisle of the reception and hung from the ceiling, creating a whimsical fairy tale scene, the type story books are made of.The bride looked like a princess in a fairy tale a-line dress before changing into a mermaid style dress with champagne gold detail, red and yellow corsage and a fascinator to match at the reception.

The Proposal: According to Tolu, "Gbenga and I were at a family event and after the party ended we were all gisting and then out of the blues he popped the question and I so freaking screamed YES!" Tolu has nothing but glowing admiration for her husband. She says she knew he was the one because he is God fearing, persistent, mature and caring. She was even more convinced that he was her husband when she prayed about it and felt a stronger conviction in the place of prayer.

Gbenga says Tolu is very understanding and he just had an inner conviction that she was the one.

The highest point of the day for the couple was when they were joined and officially pronounced man and wife. Their wedding was perfect and if given the chance they will not do anything differently

Bridezilla moment: Tolu switched to full bridezilla mode when it started raining at her engagement but of course everything was under control and the day turned out to be one of the most precious days of her life.
