Wemimo and Temitope – #NaGodalltheway!

I love love stories. And when I see a beautiful one I latched on it.

My brother from another mother got married last Saturday and I couldn’t be prouder.

They are not like Chelsea FC who do not stand a chance of winning the league. Temitope and Wemimo won the Matrimonial league on November 14, 2015. The city of Illorin knew some people were in town.

After a decade of topsy turvy friendship, they gathered family and friends and sealed the deal. But the journey that led to the beautiful day was not without its challenges. They were young and so were their passions, and so were their nerves. Many times they quarreled. Many times they fought. Ten years of being boyfriend and girlfriend would do that to you. But one thing was clear to both of them – they were inseparable. The indefinable something that draws a moth to flame kept drawing them to each other. And last Saturday, we celebrated time-tested friendship. We celebrated passion and undying love. We celebrated Temitope and Wemimo.

Enjoy their love story in these pictures.
