In a few words, all we can say is that this couple is so beautiful and so is their love story.
Diane and her forever love, Rex tied the knot last weekend in Ghana and it was such a beauty. Today we will be enjoying every bit of their love story and pre-wedding shoot by Kwaku Nickolarz Photography.
Here’s how it all started according to the bride, Diane:
This isn’t the regular “when I met him I knew”?. Looking back, I was stubborn to what now is certainly God’s plan. God was patient with me despite my stubbornness and kept pulling me to that same lane interestingly?.
I met Rex the first time when I was at a reception after a program. He gave off the whole “fresh-obroni-guy-slurring” vibes, which weirdly bored me. I never had a liking for fair guys so on the first day we met in my head I was like “dude you won’t ever get the chance, relax”?. We kept crossing paths at other programs, sometimes we chat on-and-off and conversations will die down again. Probably because life was going on for both of us elsewhere. Little had I known that my life would be voluminously turned around.
Fast forward; I walked away from a 4-years toxic relationship which was leading me nowhere and was rendering me “blind as a bat with love” because I didn’t listen to advice from family and friends nor see the “red flags” from the said person. I turned a page and readjusted my focus more to my son and more to my career; giving up on love entirely. But no, God didn’t see it that way I guess; I encountered a work-block and needed advice and the only person I could have called for that help was Rex (I was so adamant because I didn’t want to give off some “mixed vibes” to him). He gladly met up with me and sorted it out for me and then we heard that awkward silence that led to the question that I then didn’t want coming; “So how’s life?”
Another fast forward, here I was with Rex not believing how love is easy and so light not heavy nor difficult; a feeling of calmness and positivity filled my life which pushed me to be better in all aspects of my life. After introducing each other to our families it was so overwhelming and beyond our human comprehension; both families have been friends growing up in the same quarter since kindergarten! In fact back-dating our families’ friendship with our grandparents even ?. Rex proposed 6 months after we made our relationship official and 6 months down the line of time, we are walking down the aisle, about to start the next chapter of our lives. More importantly to me, he accepted me and my son Charlie as one: a huge responsibility a man with no guts can just talk.
How do I feel? I’ll say I feel like there’s been some divine alignment in my life. I can vouch I didn’t see this coming one bit! Not even a clue! God’s timing is just right and perfect… never fret one bit; in the darkest times of my life, in my losing season, in my teary nights, He knew, He saw and he worked it out for me.
