Whoever first said that you can meet the love of your life anywhere, and at any time, knew exactly what they were saying! Today’s love story started at a party. Thanks to a mutual friend’s invite, Bukky and Tolu are at the centre of it all.
Bukky had gotten invited by her friend to a party where she met her prince charming, Tolu. This might just be a memo to those of us who don’t go out; let your hair down! 😅 Introvert jokes aside, Bukky’s beauty struck Tolu the moment he laid eyes on her. We know what you’re thinking – No. This love journey did not begin immediately after the party. The pair went on to become friends until a few years later when Cupid’s seed matured fully. The lovebirds shared with us how it all went down. Keep scrolling to enjoy and also get all the feels from their beautiful pre-wedding shoot.

Their love story as shared by Tolu:
The first time we met was in 2016, I met her through a friend who had invited her to a party we all went to. I remember staring at her thinking, “Oh wow! She’s beautiful and tall!” We didn’t talk much that day but I invited her to my birthday Barbecue where we interacted just a little bit more.
I loved her energy and I had tried to make some early moves in the weeks after the barbecue. However, I didn’t get much audience. So we stayed casual as friends. We would hang out maybe once or twice a year and just text randomly once in a while.
Here’s how Bukky’s continues their love story:
Fast forward to 2019. I reached out to Tolu to promise him I would make it for his 2019 exhibition as I had missed the 2 previous editions. He asked me out to dinner to “catch up” and we had a good time. The following week, he reached out again for dinner and we somehow started talking a lot more frequently.
It soon became obvious that this dude was shooting his shot and I found myself thinking about him a lot as I grew fond of him. He later asked me to be his girlfriend and that’s how our journey started.
