Moments shared with you are my happiest!

 
So, meet our beautiful couple of the week – the Arks – On air personality and writer Ese Walter and Cool FM Abuja presenter Benny Ark.
Yeah,
we know you have seen some of their wedding photos on the blogosphere but KFB brings you their exclusive love story and never-before
seen wedding photos.


Like every other love story where Boy meets girl and  fall in love,  the ‘Arks’ started out as ‘hello’ ‘hi’ friends until they exchanged contacts one fateful day and then months after, they are man and wife 🙂
The Abuja-based radio personalities had their traditional wedding on the 8th of March – Benny’s birthday
and had their white wedding on the 29th of March – Ese’ birthday, how
sweet!
Narrating their beautiful love story, the excited groom, Benny, in an exclusive interview with KFB said “The first time we met
was at Cool FM studio. Ese used to be a guest on a show before mine and I
saw her a few times. We didn’t say more than hello in all occasions.
The first time we had a real conversation was when I ran into her at a
plaza where her Mum’s children’s shop is located. Or rather, she ran
after me when she saw me getting into my car.

“I
want us to be that couple that really does stay together. Where
everyone is like, “Wow, they’re still together?” I never want to stop
falling in love with you. And I want to be able to look beside me and
have you next to me anywhere that life decides to take me. I love you so
much.

Our first words:
Her first word to me was a question, she asked if I was Benny Ark and
mine was an answer yes…lols! We struck up a conversation and exchanged
numbers.
Months after that conversation, we are man and wife 🙂  When I am with her, I feel like am over the moon! I
love my life, I love my wife, my heart has found its home within her heart!!!”

How he proposed:
“I knew I was going to propose to Ese when I realized I couldn’t do life
without her anymore and wanted us to continue life together. The
proposal came as a surprise to her over a dinner with her sister and
husband, her friend (chief bridesmaid) and mutual friends of ours. I
called them up and told them my plan to propose to Ese.

They were in the
restaurant when we got there and Ese had no idea the proposal was going
to happen. Just before we started eating, I decided to say a prayer
over the meal and the prayer was my asking Ese to marry me.

Whoop, I’m off ‘that’ market

She said and
I quote, “I’m going to have to think about that.” Well, turns out the
thought paid off and here we are today, man and wife. team BE :)”

I will be your strength as you have been mine, desire your best and highest good to manifest itself in your life. I ❤ You

Gushing about her soul mate and bunny of life, Ese says “We started from the bottom
now we here. Benny
is my lover and best friend, he makes me tingle. He never gave up on
me. At some point he was the only one in my life who kept believing even
when I didn’t believe in myself.  He is my everything. He makes me come
alive. He wakes up the gifts in me. He is my one, my only, my
protector, my cover, my king, my lord! I
love him with every fiber in my being.”

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness

“I turned to face him…he caught my wrist…the little space between us boiled my
blood…I’m not thinking
straight, I took a deep breath.

He brought his face towards mine and said to me “You are mine”

There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

We are the perfect couple”

  1. This is so nice. I love that Ark name. So cool. Gotta admit though that whenever i see or read about ese what ist comes to mind is her escapade with coza's pastor biodun fatoyibo #nuffsaid

    1. Yeah love the Ark name too tho it's funny. All the while i tot they met in COZA cos there was a time Benny was attending COZA. Congratulations! Mr and Mrs Ark.

    2. @Aisha Yes he was one of the No. 1 Protocol Officer of COZA ( not just Protocol member) he anchor events too like this Val event in Church) not just Protocol officer in COZA even Protocol Officer to Past. Biodun himself.
      Congrats to them. Wishing them all the best #nuffsaid

    3. At 8:55 ypu seem to know alot about him. Tell us more pls. Why dd he leave? And pls someone shud remind that pastor,that we're still waiting for his robust reply ooooo.

    4. Yeah, they were both COZA members then but they ddnt know each other I guess. IU am waiting for that day when blogs and commenters would remove the COZA tag from Ese as if that is all she is and let her move on with her life.

    1. Smart Benny, he went in for a kill and got a pretty fish Ese. I love how they got married on their birthday dates. TOO SWEET.

    2. Wedding on their birthdays really made sense, I like that. Meaning they wil marking their wedding anniversary and birrhdays on same day.

  2. I can't wait to get married, all these love stories keep hitting on me. HML Ese and Mr Ben. This is a good piece of protoplasm you got here Ese.
    Good luck and God bless

    1. I wish them both a happy married life, I pray that God who has begun a good work in them will be faithful to complete it, Amen!
      On a side note, looking through both her white wedding and traditional wedding pictures, I have a sneaking suspicion that she is pregnant, although the bump is barely visible, it is definitely there. I may be wrong though, but that is what my eyes can observe, just stating my opinion.
      Nevertheless, a happy married life to them! I am happy that Ese got the last laugh at the end of it all, God always fights the battles of his children!

  3. Good to hear Ese is now married, God bless her home. Hope she has forgiven COZA because that's the beauty of christianity.
    Long live your marriage
    Long Live Pastor Biodun's marriage!!
    Long Live the Body of Christ!!!

    1. I rily respect this Benny guy. He must really love Ese for real to be able to accept her. Ese pls hold on tight to him and don't ever let him go. Your marriage shall be fruitful amen. Your photographer ddnt caption breath taking moments though.

    2. You need a photographer to caption those breath taking moments at your wedding, try Akinyatomi or duduguy #ThanksMeLaters

  4. Kemi dis is is lovely, I always look forward for dis on mondays. Great job honey. Congratulations to d arks, may God bless ur union. Morning everyone.

  5. Kemi dis is lovely, I always look forward for dis on mondays. Great job honey. Congratulations to d arks, may God bless ur union. Morning everyone.

  6. I am happy for these two. I recall that some ladies that were abusing her last year and today those ladies are still unmarried…..they think guys like us are after the holier than thou girls…..next stop beverly osu.

    1. Comeon Sly.
      Ese I am proud of you, you were bold enough to confront the Pastor, and you were also courageous enough to move on with your life. You are a strong woman and admire you.

    2. Against all odds…. She came out victorious. Whatever her story is true or false i am still happy for her. All the best in your marriage.

    3. No one is a saint, everyone of us have our secrets perfectly hidden from the ears of the world, if we can all come out to purge ourselves clean, our reward will be more. Congrats to both of them. I am sure Benny has the largest of hearts to look beyond her past.

  7. Kemi i know you dont approve negative comments but i meant no hard feelings when i said who wears a blue suit for weddings these days? If you like dont approve this one too. Love the bride's gown and maids gown. Uti is fyne sha. I can like to hook up with him if he is still single.

    1. Ishy Monkey… why do u wana hook up with him when u'v already criticized his blue suite? You better tell that young man hanging around your life yes now before you clock 30 if not, Gobe go enter your story oooo.

    2. There is notjing wrong with using blue suites, it's d new trend in town. I see you havent bn attending weddings much. Black is starting to fade. Grooms now use red, yelloe, white, cream and other cool colors.

    3. Authentic and fashionable groims use BLACK biko. Cant even imagine my precious groom in a red or another bright colored suit. Doesnt make sense pls

  8. I am surprised that some silly people here r still referg to her past affair with Pastor Biodun.
    Pls this pretty woman is married now to a great man who brings out the best in her and pastor biodun too is still with his wife, let us wish all of them the best and learn what we can from their experiences rather than referring to it pls.

  9. I pray your marriage will withstand every persecution and tides that comes knocking on your door. Congrats Mr and Mrs Benny Ark.

  10. Never look down on anyone, for those ladies that looked down on Ese then mocking her, she is married today while they r still single

  11. Congrats Ese, there is hope for every girl out there. no matter what, Redemption places you over what people think of you and how you should be, over how it is but how it should be!
