Tayo, the bride is a Nigerian while the groom is an American. They got married recently and we could not but share their cute wedding photos. The bride tells us how they met and how their love started. Read below…
Oliver and Tayo met in Year 7, at Archbishop Michael Ramsey Technology College back in 2003. As fate would have it, they were placed in the same tutor group, and because they both have last names beginning with the letter ‘A’, spent most of their educational life sitting right next to each other. It wasn’t until their school trip to Isle of Wight in 2006 that they really got to know each other. Whilst on the trip, Oliver was given the task of approaching Tayo in order to find out if she fancied Santiago, Oliver’s best friend. It was at this time Oliver developed feelings for Tayo. After receiving Santiago’s blessing once they returned to London, he decided to ask Tayo out. Her first response was “no”, which she immediately felt terrible about. That night she phoned Oliver to see if he was ok; His mum answered the phone and after handing it to him, they began talking endlessly, initiating a beautiful friendship.
From then on, Oliver and Tayo were inseparable, they spoke on the phone almost every night and spent all their break time together. It was something they looked forward to every day. Oliver walked her to the bus stop and even joined her family church. They became closer, talking about literally everything under the sun; hopes, dreams, music, and football of course. The next 6 months would see them become best friends. On April 27, 2007, after school (under the trees), Oliver snuck up behind Tayo with a beautiful gold necklace, placed it around her neck and quietly whispered in her ear, asking if she would be his girlfriend. Of course she couldn’t say no! (He had jewellery this time!) Tayo turned and jumped into him arms! The rest as they say, is history!
We’ve had such an amazing eight years, God has truly blessed us! We can’t wait to embark on the next step in our journey: Marriage! (Oliver: “And then babies!”) We are happy to announce we will be getting married at our secondary schools’ chapel and it is an absolute honour to be the first wedding at the rebuilt site. The memories we created at school are treasured forever in our hearts and being able to return to were it all began and take our vows in front of you all, is a dream come true!
