Me and my madam (repost)

Okay this is a repost but I couldn't get a really good shot of myself for the purpose of the theme challenge and since it's quite fitting last night I asked Tosin for her hand in marriage.

she said  YES!!!

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!! I think the picture is perfect, and I also think the two of you are made for eachother. Wishing the both of you all of God's blessings. You know its real when you've found what Carrie Bradshaw likes to call "Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-eachother love"

Congratulations, may this be the first step in the rest of your life together. If I could offer one morsel of advice, never go to bed on an argument.

Take care and again, congratulations.

You are a well-suited couple!
And you know how much I luuurrrrvveeee this shot!
Aww..congrats Jide, I want to ask you a question, would you be taking your wedding pictures yourself? I can just see you getting uneasy if your photographer is not doing something right..lol
Nice Shot by the way!

Cracking photo as always, Jide.

Ignore the marriage critics - it's a great institution if you look after it. I've just passed a quarter of a century, and I've no doubt that after 25 years, you could do the same! Good luck to you both.

Also forgot to say many many congratulations to you both, in my earlier comment yesterday. All the best. Mal
Jide Alakija: The T-shirt was from Singapore I think, it was a gift.

I was almost getting worried since you didn't say anything. Thanks Mal. Really appreciate your blessings.

Jide, I hope u remember me (Gbenga's in law).Stumbled across your shots, and they are reallly inspiring.I've been out of photography for a li'l while, but these pics begs of me to rethink - I do love Photography, and your pictures bring back the lost love.
I'll be on hols in Nigeria this Christmas, so hopefully that'll give me the chance to create!
I'm kitted up with my Nikon D200 and Leica P&S (okay in Lumix LX2 body).
Keep in touch pls, and Yes, Congratulations...She certainly looks worthy of all your effort.

superb! Love this shot! Beautiful light.. love the smiling faces too
