Love is such a beautiful feeling. And we at Brides are suckers for the emotion. We enjoy a good love story that leaves us teary-eyed and fawning all over ourselves, and Uyo and Rio give us that feeling.
If you think the love story is so beautiful, wait till you see the pre-wedding photos, and you’ll see why these guys have already captured our heart. We will stop talking and let you see for yourself.
Here’s the love story according to the bride, Uyo:
We first saw each other at his brother’s wedding but didn’t speak, it was more of a fleeting moment between two people. Fast forward to eleven months after, we met again at the Hilton we were both buying tickets to travel for Christmas. Our first date was two days after that, we had brunch, it was wonderful so much so that we spent the whole day together.
From then on we literally spoke every day and became inseparable. He took me to Cape Verde for my birthday after we had dated for a year and you could just tell everyone was holding their breaths to hear the big news (myself included), but Mr Man didn’t propose lol, it was an amazing trip though.
He proposed a week later where we had our first date ever, it was intimate, sweet and private. It was perfect and certainly unexpected. We got married traditionally two months later in Delta.
