From Meeting in Church to Saying “I Do” at The Altar – It’s the #NJLoveStory!

Like a wind sweeping everything in its path, when love finds you, it sweeps you off your feet in the most dreamy way. Today is all about Neche and James who allowed love take the reins, leading them on a forever journey.

Seeing that the lovebirds met in church, you will agree with us that their sweet love is divine! They discovered after their first conversation that they were birthday mates-talk about a match made in heaven! It wasn’t hard for them to form a strong bond and even though time and distance tried to get in the way, love didn’t stop winning.

Today we get to see them exchange vows at their perfect wedding and we are absolutely loving the warmth their photos exude. No doubt, Neche and James are soulmates for life and this is evident in the love written all over their wedding photos. Go on and take in all the sweetness as you scroll. 😊

Enjoy Neche and James’ white wedding photos and love story below:

Their love story as shared by James:

I met Neche in church back in 2015. She had just joined the counselling department and I was a youth minister, so we often sat around each other during church service. After one of the services, we started talking and found out that we had the same birthday. We exchanged phone numbers and that was the start of a beautiful friendship.

Neche brought that pristine glow to her big day 😍

Getting to know Neche was such a pleasant experience, she had the most beautiful soul I had ever encountered and I knew I had found my wife. A few months later, I asked her to be my girlfriend. Even though we liked each other, she felt that the timing was not right because she was moving to the UK for her Master’s programme.

Surrounded with love from the best girls…

In 2018, Neche moved back to Nigeria and was working in Abuja, when the most random thing happened. She was walking to the pharmacy across the road from her office and I was driving past the pharmacy when I saw her. I stopped by and we had a lovely conversation and made plans to meet up. We started spending a lot of time together; going to the movies, having lunch dates, and exchanging phone calls and text messages. It was like no time had passed between us.

Gracefully exuding charm and beauty 😍

I moved to Canada in 2019 but our friendship continued to blossom. We continued to grow in love, despite not being in the same country. The distance only made our hearts grow fonder and in 2021, I asked Neche to officially be my girlfriend and she said yes! About a year later, on our birthday, I asked her to spend the rest of our lives growing in love, friendship and every other way, and she said yes, again!
