From ”The walk to the hostel, to Walking down the aisle”.
We bring to you Ubiedi Eguono Avon & Ejiro Junior Ariko; University sweethearts who actually started dating December 31st, 2008. According to her after so many bars like ‘”I will never break your heart”, “I will take care of you” (Ask me what a student then had to offer) she finally caved in. She says; “We didn’t have the smoothest of relationships. Everyone who knew one of us knew both of us. We were notorious for quarrelling and fighting (you could say we were very young and only falling in love I guess)”.
Even with all the youthful exuberance and years of long-distance relationship, the couple made it down the aisle. The bride refers to her king as “The man of my dreams; boyfriend of my youth, my first love, my prayer warrior and partner, my brother, my sibling,my friend,my best friend and my gossip partner”.
The couple had an Urhobo traditional and white wedding, Ughelli South, Port Harcourt Nigeria on the 19th of November, 2016. This Nigerian wedding has a beautiful love story we all envy. Many of us would love to have ended up with our high school or university sweetheart.
Here are the pictures of their wedding surrounded by family and friends; surprise bridal shower and their intimate pre-wedding photo shoot. From the amazing swan inspired wedding decor, to their wedding cake, bridesmaids mustard bridal outfits to dapper groomsmen. We are in awe of this wedding. We can see that this couple have great taste. The bride’s wedding dress and change of outfit was just beautiful. The make-up artists and photographers truly did this wedding justice.
