Love is one of the most beautiful things that a person can experience. When this beautiful love leads to a “happy ever after”, we can’t help but celebrate it! Today, we’re all about the #MyHartsTreasure22 wedding.
Though Faith and Dagogo may have crossed paths over a decade ago, their love story didn’t take effect until some years after when fate brought them together again, this time through a mutual friend. From sweet poetry to a meeting which became a date… the two have now ultimately become one!
After their traditional wedding which was filled with colour and love, the lovebirds went ahead to seal the deal in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony with friends and family present to witness and celebrate with them. Faith was an alluring bride in her elegant wedding dress and Dagogo came through dapper and suave. Their love story and beautiful wedding photos are sure to make your day.
Enjoy the #MyHartsTreasure22 white wedding and love story as shared by the couple below.
Their love story as shared by Dagogo:
In a way I think I met Faith before she met me. On my very first day in Ireland, 12 years ago… Faith was part of the group that came to the airport to welcome my set. She was actually one of the very first people I spoke to. I remember saying to her how cold it was. Her response was, “haven’t you travelled outside Nigeria before?” Keep in mind this was October, mid-autumn. I said I had, but usually during the summer, and she said “you should travel more.”
I’ll never forget that meeting. Looking back at it now it seems so ominous. We were in separate cities for the better part of 6 years even though I always knew of her as we had a lot of mutual friends. In 2017, when I moved to Dublin where she was, and with both of us recently single… We met again at a mutual friend’s house. I remember she looked so beautiful, and I did something I wouldn’t normally do, I said to her “you look so beautiful”.
I remember she had a camera with her and I was actually looking for a filmmaker to collaborate with. We arranged a “meeting” which ended up being our first date. She was so kind and so caring. She asked me genuine questions about myself and was so interested in what I had to say. I was done after that, I fell for her hard and five years later we’re here.
Nothing beats mama’s love!
Here’s Faith’s side of the story:
Dagogo has an airport story of how we met but my earliest memory of us meeting is in 2017 at my best friend’s event – Rhema 365 in church. He did one of his poems “Lantern smoke” and I thought to myself, “this man is good”.
An exquisite bride in all her glory!
A month or so later, sometime in May 2017. We met again at the same best friend’s house but this meeting was different. Almost as if it was a scene from a movie as I could not stop telling my other two best friends about it. 😅 We exchanged numbers on that day as he told me about his poetry gigs and how he would like us to make videos for some of his poems as I had my camera on that day. I showed him some photos I had taken. I decided we met on a different day so we could discuss even more what he wanted to achieve with the videos.
Let’s head over to Dagogo as he also gets ready for the big day…
On the said day of the meeting, we agreed to meet at a coffee shop since it was supposed to be a quick meeting but he was late and I was hungry so I decided we go to a restaurant instead because I don’t function properly when I am hungry. Lol. Well, we arrived at the restaurant and the meeting turned into a QnA session where we asked all manner of questions. A quick meeting lasted for nearly 2 hours as we had burgers, dessert plus cocktails and a long chat. He walked me home, we said goodbyes and the rest is history.
Time to exchange those vows…
It’s Mr and Mrs now!
The joys of ever after!
It’s reception O’clock!
