Marriage is the coming together of two souls to become one, joint by love and affection. The story of Hauwa and Yahaya is indeed a sweet one, one that affirms love at first sight. The wedding fatiha which took place at An-Nur Mosque, Wuse 2 was followed by a glamorous reception at the Maha Events Centre, Garki and was well-attended by family, friends and other well-wishers.
According to the bride, it all started when she attended Yahaya’s uncle’s 80th birthday celebration where a friend used Yahaya’s camera to take pictures.
He was overwhelmed by Hauwa’s beauty while going through the camera photos and wanted to meet her. They met on a Friday, one of the best days of the week and they became very good friends.
“I loved him from Day 1 and I knew he was the one I’d been waiting for. We started dating two weeks after and today we are married. Alhamdulilah”, Hauwa said.
“He was soooo my type. Tall, chubby, very generous, funny, jovial”, she added.
According to groom, “I like the fact that she is smart, beautiful and very expressive”.
