When Ijeoma sent us photos from her Igbo Traditional Wedding to her husband, Ogaga, we knew we were in for a treat! The traditional wedding took place in Nnewi, Anambra State, and Akara Ogheneworo Photography was there to capture all the beautiful moments.
Read how they met, shared by the bride:
Ijeoma: I went to meet a friend after work, who insisted that I accompany her to a work event. I reluctantly followed her, since she promised we would be there just for a short while . At the event I sat quietly as I was a little bit under the weather, but I couldn’t help noticing this “Morris Chesnut like” looking happy chap dancing away and I thought “someone’s happy”. Coincidentally, some minutes later, the happy dude aka Gaga came up to me, chatted briefly and asked for a dance. I politely turned him down because I didn’t have “energy ” for him; I was having a headache and definitely not in a dancing mood.
Fast forward to some months later, I went to the gym to bring sexy back lol and I saw the same guy there, but this time he just kept staring and staring, making me feel a bit self conscious; I noticed he was even lifting weights heavier than he could carry “lool”. He walked over to me at some point to say hi, and being in a better mood, we got talking. That was how we became gym buddies; we got so close to the extent that on one occasion Gaga even followed me to the aerobics classes where he was the only male ‘lol’. We kept seeing regularly at the gym and from there our friendship progressed, till one day Gaga suggested we hangout outside the gym.
At this point some of his swag and sweet mouth had rubbed off on me and I was happy to take our friendship outside the gym. He would always do the sweetest things, yet he would be forming Warri boy. Three years later our friendship is waxing stronger and I am about to get married to the love of my life and start our journey till forever after…………….
