It’s been 13 months and 22days, but it feels like yesterday… – Tosin & Dotun

Loved you once, love you still, always have, always will

It’s Monday…..yayy! Welcome to another edition of the every Monday TLS….you have all been amazing, encouraging and ah….sweet!
We love love love our KFB couple of the week, they’re so cute!

Our KFB couple (Tosin and Dotun) of the week had their first wedding anniversary weeks ago and they were so excited. They call each other “Baby…husby/wifey, my better half” awww! Tosin Alakija and Dotun Akinbode got married on the 22nd of December 2012 and their love is still going strong!

You and I are of one heart, love you I really do.

On how the marital journey has been, the couple who presently reside in Nottingham, United Kingdom said “It has not been an easy one as we get to learn each day but our love is forever and conquers all.”

Narrating how they met, Tosin said “We met way back while still in the university, I was walking down to the
car park when he walked up to me and introduced himself.

he had spotted me quite a number of times before that day. We got
talking and it was like we had known each other for a long time, we
became friends and that was the beginning of our journey together.

The love birds! (Wedding Introduction)

How he proposed:

We went for dinner…at first I didn’t want to go but he insisted he had
made reservations and all, so off to dinner we went.

If I know what love is, it is because of you

On getting there,
we had our main course and then we got to desserts. I noticed Dotun was a
bit nervous but then I dismissed it.  I placed an order for my dessert
(he said he wasn’t having but would share from mine) and I made a quick
dash to the ladies.

When I got back to the table, I started with my dessert but then
noticed there was something under my table napkin because it was bulging
so I reached out to remove the “item” under it and there it was – the
cutest little box ever.

Here’s how we have fun!!!
we’re most alive when we are together
We love each other every step of the way!
Our happiest moments are the ones we spend together
We go together like copy and paste 🙂
When we first met, I had no idea you’d become this important to me.

For a second I was clueless but then I saw Dotun on one knee, then it hit me – that Dotun was about to propose!

I heard him say how he would love to spend the rest of his life with me
but didn’t get to hear every other thing he said because
I was in tears and so excited. I managed to hear the part where he popped the question – “Will you Marry Me?”
I said YES and the rest like they say is history.

Now we leave you to enjoy their very lovely wedding photos (photography by Dudu guy) 😉

Yeah, yeah it’s my day
2day my love story starts with ‘once upon time’ and ends with ‘happily ever after’
The last tea ama take as a bachelor
When I’m with you, I forget the world for a while
We’ve exchanged rings cos they bind our love 2geda like our hearts do
You make me smile…
Just looking at you gives me joy
No matter  the rain or sun shine, our love will stand a test of time
We have the greatest pre-nuptial agreement in the world. It’s called love
We are a work in progress with a lifetime contract.

You’re d reason why i become stronger but still you are my weakness
Every love story is beautiful but ours is our favorite 🙂
We’ll fall in love with each other everyday of our lives

Pakurumo ko jo da a da
Oya whine for me girl….
I love my baby, that’s my baby, treat my baby right…
Making you smile is part of my daily routine of letting you know you mean d world to me
Every moment spent with you is like a beautiful dream come true
You are d first person who has bn able to make my heart beat faster & slower at d same time
Within you I lose myself, without you i find myself wanting to become lost again
It was not my lips you kissed but my soul
Daddy-daughter dance
Mother-son dance
Some love one, some love two, I love one and that is you
You are my happily ever after
Throwing of the bouquet
We lean on each other’s strengths and forgive our weaknesses
