The lovely and talented couple who would have been married for 32 years by November shared some intimate details about their big day, over 30 years ago.
Joke Silva gets major points for getting to the church before the groom, which rarely happens. She tells Punch, ”I wasn’t early to church; I was right there on time but my husband was two hours late. I didn’t have a sleepless night because I slept very well,”
It turns out from her statement that he was tired due to his bachelor’s eve, the night before their wedding.
Olu Jacobs reveals a teary detail from the wedding saying, ”After getting dressed and was about leaving for the church service, my mum called me to her room and prayed for me and I still remember every word of the prayer. Funny enough, I didn’t cry until when she started crying while I was leaving later in the night and her tears made me cry too.”
Well done Uncle Olu and Aunty Joke, we wish you both so many more years of love and happiness.
