Ife fell in love with Deji & his horrible handwriting | #DIFE2018

Ayodeji and Ife were course mates and then became soulmates. The couple shared their love story and pictures from their pre-wedding shoot with Nigerian photographer, J Gates Visuals with us.


It was a Physics 100 Level lecture at Bowen University, Iwo. A mutual friend introduced us to each other.

Bride: Efe I missed the last PHY110 class, how do I get the notes?

Efe: I have a friend (groom), he’s a ‘brainy’ he’ll have taken notes in the class.

A few hours later

Efe: Ife (bride), this is Ayo (groom) – my friend who I told you about.

Bride: Hi Ayo, please can I borrow your PHY110 note, Efe said you took notes

Groom: Here it is. Have it

Bride: Flips through the note (*what kind of horrible handwriting is this*), Efe I can’t use this note I can’t see his writing

Efe: Ehn give it back to him na…….to be continued

Honestly, I can’t remember what happened afterwards; we just became inseparable from that moment onwards. Sometimes, a bad handwriting can be very attractive. 

Days passed, weeks passed, he (groom) became my go-to person for clarifications before tests and exams. We became study partners from 100 Level and became inseparable best friends. We did everything together (including sitting together during tests and exams… lol).

He always said, ‘I would marry you someday‘, and I always replied ‘naaaaa’.

Fast forward to graduation, NYSC (same camp **eyes rolling**) and real life after all of that, he proposed in the most unromantic way – inside his car outside my house.

In (insert number of days), we are going to be married and he would look at me and say ‘I told you so!’

I’m getting married to my favorite person and I’m super excited!
