Slyvia and George’s pre-wedding photos are stunning, we love their outfit, the vintage feel and definitely the chemistry. Their love story also is as amazing as their photos. Their uncle and aunt thought they would be perfect for each other and despite the distance, they were! The countdown to #SG19 officially begins. Let’s start with their love story. The groom-to-be George shared their sweet story when he said:
“Being the first and only son, my parents always expressed their desire of wanting me to marry a Nigerian girl but since we lived in Panama it was close to impossible to meet Nigerians there, and I also wasn’t interested in a long distance relationship. On this particular day, my uncle sent me pictures of a girl and asked me if I liked what I was seeing, I told him she was beautiful but I guess she lives in Nigeria.
He informed me that she lived in Saint Kitts where she was schooling at the time. I had no clue where the country was located as I had never heard of it before so I googled it and found out it was a small island not too far from Panama, I was both surprised and excited with my findings.
I got her number from my uncle and called her for the first time, I actually thought the call was going be short and probably awkward as I didn’t know what she thought about me but it turned out better than I initially expected. I remember us talking for a long time over the phone that day and I really enjoyed our conversation and wanted to talk to her every day. After a month of talking every day, I finally decided to visit her and meet her in person, so we made plans towards that. When the day came I was so nervous and excited to finally meet her.
When I saw her for the first time what caught my attention was her beautiful smile, she had one of the prettiest smiles I had ever seen. We had an awesome time together and by the end of my 1-week trip I asked her to be my girlfriend and she said yes. We started our long distance relationship and I would go visit her every month. Months later she came to Panama to meet my family and they all loved her as well. Fast forward to a year and a couple of months after, we went together to London for the first time and at the London Eye, I asked her to marry me to which she said Yes!
