Nimi & Olaoluwa are getting married and their wedding is being planned by Nigerian wedding planner, LH Events. Read their love story and see pictures from their pre-wedding shoot photographed by Felix Crown.
Sometime in September, Laolu woke up one morning and said Nimmie, I want to marry you. He knows I don’t like surprises, and even before getting me gifts, we talk them through together. So in my head, I’m like ‘yeah, let the plans begin’.
I took a meeting with and hired our wedding planner (She’s the best btw) sometime in November and practically got the ball rolling.
On the 18th of December, I was in the spirit to enjoy my office’s end-of-the-year party which I had so much looked forward to as I was a part of the planning committee.
A few hours into the event, I got a call from his brother telling me that Laolu’s car was stolen, and he had been beaten badly. I rushed out of the party, confused and panicking, literally threw off my wig, and was speeding to meet up at where he was supposed to be.
With the car still running, I rushed out of the car and ran right into the house to check on him, and to my utmost surprise, I saw most of our closest friends and family all gathered in a beautifully decorated space and ‘My guyyy’ literally down on one knee officially asking for my hand in marriage.
Ah, Laolu got me!
I ran out of the space to catch my breath, feeling every form of emotion, with tears rolling down my eyes first knowing he was okay and of course catching me unexpectedly.
I came back in and said yes to the love of my life.
I cant wait to do forever with you, Olaoluwa.
