Getting Married – Y&B

(Y&B stands for Yegwa and me, Bibi aka Neogogo)

A million years ago (Nov 10th, 2008) I put up my first ever Sugarwater blog post. In those days the blog was on blogspot and it went a little something like this:

I’m a neogogo. And this blog is going to be about all the silly inconsequential stuff that we never talk about here. And by here I of course mean Nigeria.
As my header suggests, this will mainly consist of manga, gaming, foreign films and, since I don’t have a cat, my boyfriend.
Hope you like!

So many things have changed since then. My life, my interests, me – but this post is really just to talk about one particular change…my marriage!^^

For those who follow this blog (As BigBang said: “Thank you and you.”) you may have noticed that my posting went sort of downhill for the last several months. This was mainly because of the count down to my big day which was on Feb 12th. The funny thing is that I did mean to document the whole thing. I even took the pics! But at the end of the day the wedding was huger than me and took over completely and I was lucky to even find time to breath!

But at the end of the day it’s just cool to note that the person who started on this blog as my boyfriend and then became my fiance is now my hubby! 🙂

So without to much more ado here are some pics (Scanned and one’s I stole from friends on FB), my only regret is I gained all the weight I lost while I was actively working out (sigh) but all that withstanding, we had a pretty rocking time:

My Mom-in-Law on the left!

We are flanked by my Mom and Dad (sorry! So fuzzy!)

Our Civil Ceremony, bro-in-law, sis, me, hubby (we got married thrice!^^)

If you want to see what it was really like, I have bonus Videos!!!!!!! This was done for us by my bro-in-law who is a film maker in the UK (more on that later).

Part 1.

Part 2.

So many people suffered so we could have these moments. Our parents, our siblings, our relatives and our friends. I know we can never adequately thank everyone but we’ll keep trying anyway!

Finally, many people have asked me since getting back from our honeymoon (another post!) what it’s like to be married. To them I say, since Y and I worked together and were almost always in each other’s company before, the main difference now is that we live together in our own little place.^^ So for me marriage is kinda like before but now with sleep overs! hehe!

Hopefully I will be better at posting as I get my life back in control.

Still love u all madly.

  1. CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!!! Your wedding(s) looked amazing. OMG. (Were the cameras there for memories or were they really recording you guys for the news or something lol because that’s what it looks like.) I loved your dresses, especially the traditional one.

    I read your posts earlier this week (on my phone) but I kept forgetting to come and comment D: I’m so glad your blogging semi-regularly again!

  2. Hi Paperdoll (Stellena-chan!^^)
    Arigatou Gozaimasu!!!! It was really crazy! My aunt made me the white wedding dress and believe it or not, I didn’t get it till 4am that morning and a girl was still sewing on the buttons down the back! Lol! The traditional was just fun!
    There was some news coverage because of my hubby’s Dad whose a retired statesman so that was kind of crazy too! They asked what I hoped from my marriage and I said: well, to not divorce and that’s pretty much all anyone remembers +///+!!!
    And thank you for still reading even though I’ve become so badly irregular!! Hopefully I will be able to get it together in the future. Till then I will depend on you!!!
