Judith and Kingsley met unexpectedly!
Kingsley was helping his cousin who was getting married to sort out her friends by ensuring they all get to her wedding venue hitch-free, but little did he know that he would be meeting someone who would forever be part of his life. It was a long distance relationship and they both ensured they worked it out perfectly- every day was a learning curve for the lovebirds. Because they took some ample time out to plan their W-day themselves, this brought them even closer together as they wanted nothing but a perfect personalized wedding that reflected their styles.
The couple’s love story is a very interesting one and this makes us believe that LOVE can be found anywhere.
Our Beautiful Beginning
We met 5 years ago at his cousin’s traditional wedding. I was visiting Nigeria for the holidays. The bride asked him to bring me and some other folks to the venue as I didn’t know my way around. I remember vividly a simple compliment from me to him “nice shoes,” sparked a friendship which later turned into romance and despite the odds that were stacked against us (distance et al) here we are today. By the way, I genuinely liked his shoes, and honestly had nothing else in mind, Lol but I guess Kingsley saw it as his green light.
The Awesome Proposal
I initially had plans of proposing to her on a boat cruise I was organizing for her birthday with some friends but that plan went kaput due to bad weather or something (can’t remember), nonetheless, I’m glad it happened because according to her she always wanted an intimate proposal.
He proposed to me 2 years ago in Lagos at exactly midnight on my birthday. Just the two of us, him on both knees, a heartfelt speech and him asking me to be his wife. I said yes! (obviously) and with tears in our eyes, we both got on our knees & prayed to God to guide and protect us through this journey.
