A True Love Story: The fashion designer, the church choir and the altar – Tunde and Tomi

Aww, music, the church and the God factor!

That’s the summary of today’s True Love Story.

Our couple of the week, Tomi, a top fashion designer and Tunde met in church where they are both choristers and got married in June, 2015.

Tomi, never expected she’d date or marry anyone in the choir. They formed a bond so strong and sealed it at the altar recently in a lovely wedding ceremony.

How/where we met:
Tomi:  Church choir. I would be busy singing my part (alto) or taking the lead of the song only to find this not – so – familiar face starring at me. He would stare so hard till I would notice him. I found it annoying at first but then it caught my attention and then finally….. He stole my heart. I never even thought I’d date anyone in the choir.

A couple that slays together…
The missing rib and the soul mate

As a matter of fact, I was already contemplating changing to a church where I’d meet better prospects! LOL. Every week that I planned to stop attending rehearsals, then my choir director would send me a song and ask me to score it for our next ministration. Singing, especially ministering in church gives me joy so it was difficult to leave, I eventually just stayed.

I love how you love to make me happy
I eventually met Tunde and we started dating. He came across as an open and sincere person. He didn’t hold back on things that he probably could have. It’s one of the things I admire a lot and that put my mind at rest about him.

Oh,  the things your music and voice does to me…

When you sing, nothing else matters
With this song, i thee wed

Despite the odds, our love for each other and the close friendship that we shared kept us going.

Tunde takes over the Narration:
I didn’t think Tomi had any feelings for me. It would have been a dream to assume she’d agree to date me but of course I didn’t rule out the possibility of us becoming friends. So I started scouting day and night for an opening, (a window of opportunity), to at least be seen. It seemed like I didn’t exist to her- either as a member of the choir or a member of the congregation or even a human being. Lol!


In you I have found joy and peace to last me a lifetime


I adore the way you look at me
“I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself but for what you are making of me.

So I kept hoping for that window of opportunity to at least let her know that I exist. As people dedicated to the service of God and knowing the importance of seeking God’s counsel in everything we do, we inquired of the Lord and waited several months for his clearance.

Oh, that joy of coming home and having you waiting already

We eventually got it, so I  decided I wanted to have her ride with me through every phase in the journey.

I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
“In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.
I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”


Tomi: The proposal happened a few months into the relationship; on our way from a church service we both attended together, he parked the car, turned to face me and said, “Tomi, are you willing to go on this journey with me? It’s going to be long, a bit rough and tough.” I wasn’t quite sure what he meant but I replied, “Yes”. The ring came later and I still said, “Yes”!

Tunde: I really looked forward to the proposal, and rather than the conventional way of popping the “will you marry me?” question, I simply told her there was a journey ahead of me I would sincerely love for her to follow me on ’till the very end…  She seemed confused at first, not understanding my words. Then came a beautiful smile on her face when she finally understood. “Yes, I will,” she replied.
