Wedding bells are ringing for former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Fiona Amuzie, and her beau Frank Iredu. The two lovebirds will be tying the knot in January 2016! The bride-to-be shares her romantic love story and some eye-catching pre-wedding photos.
If we lived in an ideal world, ours would be a story of love at first sight.
(but we don’t…)
The first time we met was at The Haven National Convention in London. It was my first time there because I had just joined the group six months before. He was leading the praise and worship when I saw him. He got my attention. Even though we both attend the same ministry, this was the first time I took any notice of him.
He later met me on the second day and introduced himself to me with that “pick up line- YOU LOOK FAMILIAR” (ladies, we all know this line, don’t we?)
Anyway, he defends it to date that I genuinely looked familiar.
Okay…next please! haha…
He asked me for my bb pin then he asked for my number (all in one breath).
We started talking and I immediately told him that I was in a serious relationship so if that’s what he’s looking for then he’s at the wrong bus stop”. Meanwhile at that time I knew my relationship was going no where. I knew I was in the wrong relationship. My mum had told me. My sister had told me and my friend had told me. I had to muster the courage to end that relationship.
I eventually did.
Whenever we spoke it was like we had known each other for a long time. There was a sense of peace, calmness and friendship that emanated from within me. Although I must confess, I kinda made it difficult because I wouldn’t let my guard down for 9 months straight. He tried to make me laugh. He was just genuinely concerned for my happiness.
I had never met someone who was so selfless. I knew how I felt about him but I would hide it for many months until I was ready.
Whenever we were together, we spoke about everything, life, God, love. He is so kind and honest.
I knew I had to decide. There was no shadow of a doubt in my mind that he was the one for me. After I sought spiritual guidance and counsel, I decided.
It was him or no other.
