Of all the beautiful things that one can find on the Instagram Explore page, the one that gets us the most excited, is love! How? Uju and Raymond’s certainly know a thing or two about that and you’ll be cheesing as you scroll on.
The lovebirds are taking this journey from the Instagram Explore page to forever as they tie the knot in a lovely white wedding ceremony. Uju made an absolutely gorgeous bride and Raymond understood the drip assignment. We love how they were able to add beautiful colours to their wedding by repping their Igbo culture. The joy and energy that filled the air was highly contagious and we could feel it by just staring at the photos. Uju and Raymond make such a perfect pair and we are so happy they get to spend the rest of their lives together!
Enjoy their white wedding photos below and see their pre-wedding shoot here:
Their love story as shared by Uju:
It was the first week of our famous Detty December in 2019 when I randomly saw a funny story on the Instagram Explore page. I responded to his story; surprisingly, he replied sweetly. We spoke and connected instantly, joked and laughed about a lot of things.
Uju showed up with a blinding glow on her big day! 😍
Fast forward to our first official date on 17th of January, 2020, he was extremely nice. I spent time with him and we had lots of laughs……OMG!! He wanted to take things to the next level but I was busy forming (meanwhile I really liked him lol women and our wahala). After several conversations, dates plus one or two friendly gbas gbos, he officially asked me to be his girlfriend on the 14th of February, 2020. Ever since then, it has been wonderful, amazing and beautiful, all thanks to God, myself and my sweet husband.
