High School Sweethearts who met 14 years ago tied the knot over the weekend the same place where the groom asked the bride to be his girlfriend.
They met in junior secondary, at Archbishop Michael Ramsey Technology College back in 2003. As fate would have it, they were placed in the same reading class, and because they both have last names beginning with the letter ‘A’, spent most of their educational life sitting right next to each other.
The first time he asked her out, her first response was “no”, which she immediately felt terrible about.
That night she phoned Oliver to see if he was ok; His mum answered the phone and after handing it to him, they began talking endlessly, initiating a beautiful friendship. From then on, Oliver and Tayo were inseparable,
On Sunday, January 19th 2014, Tayo returned to Heathrow Airport after spending three months working at an architecture firm in Nigeria. Totally jet lagged and unaware of the situation she proceeded to the exit wondering, “why’s this guy in a suit?”.
Not too long after, Oliver was on one knee in front of the entire airport, asking for her hand in marriage.
The tears flowed, hugs, kisses, and “Of course, a big Yes! Yes!” It was amazing, their friends surrounded them and total strangers clapped and cheered.
