You made the right with your by saying "I do" and now let us document your day.
When we think of love. The only true expression we have is what is defined by Webster as love is having a strong liking for someone or a strong passionate affection for someone person. When I think of Bimbo & Deola it reminds of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet XLIII.
With family and friends in toe at Aja Restaurant to give Bimbo the ultimate surpise. And in saying all this Adeola asked that one question, “Will you”? and she said “I do”. Congratulations on your engagement.

Brief history provided by Wikipedia.
On 1 October 1960, Nigeria gained its independence from the United Kingdom. Nigeria’s government was a coalition of conservative parties: the Nigerian People’s Congress (NPC), a party dominated by Northerners and those of the Islamic faith; and the Igbo and Christian-dominated National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC) led by Nnamdi Azikiwe, who became Nigeria’s maiden Governor-General in 1960. Forming the opposition was the comparatively liberal Action Group (AG), which was largely dominated by the Yoruba and led by Obafemi Awolowo. The cultural and political differences among Nigeria’s dominant ethnic groups: the Hausa (‘Northerners’), Igbo (‘Easterners’) and Yoruba (‘Westerners’), were sharp.
An imbalance was created in the polity by the result of the 1961 plebiscite. Southern Cameroon opted to join the Republic of Cameroon while northern Cameroon chose to remain in Nigeria. The northern part of the country was now far larger than the southern part. The nation parted with its British legacy in 1963 by declaring itself a Federal Republic, with Azikiwe as its first president. When elections were held in 1965, the Nigerian National Democratic Party came to power in Nigeria’s Western Region.
After scouting for days for a prestine location. I found a location which had history and culture. My shoot location was none other than Roswell Mill. Capturing these memorable moments with these children were not easy, but after getting them comfortable in front of the camera became easy.
The Roswell Mills are best known for their role in producing supplies for the Confederacy during the Civil War. They made “Roswell Gray” fabric to be sewed into Confederate military uniforms. Because it was of great importance to the South’s military supply chain, General Gerrard, a Union official working under the purview of General Sherman, seized the mill on July 5, 1864.
