Maureen and Frank met when they were not looking for Love!
Their meeting was meant to be because after they got introduced to each other by a mutual friend, there was a spark and the two started falling in love with each other unexpectedly. Love surely had its way and they were literally awestruck about how they complete and complement each other perfectly. Their love blossomed into more than they could ever have imagined. The two inseparable friends decided to give love a chance and they will be saying their ‘I Dos’ soonest.
For the romantic proposal, it was a perfectly planned and an intimate one. For their pre-wedding shoot, the lovebirds’ jetted away to Dubai to have a classic engagement shoot they will forever live to cherish.

Our Love Story
It all started when I moved to Lagos a few years ago. Our mutual friend thought it nice to help me speak with him (my husband-to-be) to at least drop me off at work since we stayed a stone throw away from each other. We always had the most basic conversations at least for a couple of days.
One day I told him I was off to Ghana for the weekend and coincidentally he was going to be there too…That’s where our love ship sailed.
I tried playing hard to get and wanted to stall for a bit since I had just come out of a relationship. Until he told me he had to move to Italy for work. At that point, I knew a big part of me was going to miss him, so I said yes to officially date him.
The long distance wasn’t really felt as I traveled frequently to visit him in Italy. We would then use the opportunity to take vacations together.
Months went by and he moved back. I’ve always wanted to have a party on my 25th birthday so it wasn’t really a surprise when my friend from Ghana flew down and all my siblings from Port Harcourt. I was planning the party with him and has no clue he had a proposal in mind. He popped the question at the party that we both planned.He had everyone hold up a letter of this sentence – MAUREEN WILL YOU MARRY ME – while he held on to the question mark ?
Of course, I said YES.
With my lover, friend and companion, I know love has no end for us. I’ve had really good times with him since we met and forever can’t wait to host our amazing love life.
I am Maureen Cookie, soon to be the wife of the greatest man alive, Frank Moore
