And the award for the most ROMANTIC GROOM OF THE CENTURY goes to…..


The pastor had just finished preaching the usual sermon on LOVE. The next item on the agenda was not on the agenda. It was a surprise. The minister brought up a lady that was to sing a very special song dedicated to the bride from the groom. The bride seemed surprised because it wasn’t in the to-do list of the planned wedding.

The lady began to sing. I think she was related to Beyoncé, Whitney Houston & Celine Dion because she sang with so much grace, anointing & talent that….

“Like oil upon your feet,
like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you……”

She sang with such grace and anointing that I I felt goose bumps all over me

Suddenly but not surprisingly, I witnessed the bride’s face leaking water. She was touched by such a romantic gesture. I was capturing the moment from a little distance off with my 50-200mm lens on an olympus E1 camera. I was shooting at the 200mm end of the lens.

The bride’s face was leaking, the groom was smiling, the atmosphere was romantic & I was crying. Wait a minute, I WAS CRYING. I was so touched by the beauty of the song and the groom’s gesture of love that I thought the song was dedicated to me. I’m sure even Jesus must have wept at the sound of such a beautiful voice singing such a beautiful song; only that it wasn’t dedicated to Jesus or the photographer. The teary session lasted for about 15 seconds for the bride & 45 seconds for the photographer.

Anyway I thought that was really romantic of the groom. Although that was back in 2007, I have not met a groom that pulled off such a surprising romantic stunt till date. And the award for the most ROMANTIC GROOM OF THE CENTURY goes to Dr. LANRE AJAYI

Hope the romance is still as hot as I witnessed it on your wedding day.

    OMG!!! I love love love that song. So, I can relate to the bride on that. I would almost faint if I were in her shoes.
    I hope the romance is still as sizzling. 🙂
