Love is such a powerful force. How it cuts through cultural barriers and brings not just two people but two families together as one will always be one of our favourite things about love.
Indian beauty, Rekha and her Nigerian prince charming, Dolapo met at a get-together while at the university and decided to take the forever train. The lovebirds tied the knot in a beautiful traditional wedding and all the colours came out to play. It was so lovely to see how they infused their Indian and Nigerian roots and believe it when we say nothing beats this gorgeous blend of love and culture.
Amidst all the beauty the sweethearts served us, what shone through the most was the love that these two share. It was evident in every smile, every hug, and every stare into each other’s eyes. We bet you will love every photo as much as we do!
During my senior year of college in the U.S. at Brown University in Providence, I met Rekha through a mutual friend who had brought her to a get-together before a concert. From the moment we locked eyes, I knew I felt something shift, even though I couldn’t quite figure out what it was. After spending most of the evening chatting away, we went on our first date a couple of weeks later after which I recall telling my housemates that we would get married one day. We soon discovered we shared a passion for the arts, as I was actively pursuing a music career and Rekha was in the process of founding the arts program at the school where she taught.
