With the gorgeous Constantia winelands mountains in Cape Town as the backdrop, just three years ago, South African model Lee-Ann Liebenberg and businessman Nicky van der Walt said ‘I do’. Lee-Ann looked radient in a breathtaking wedding gown by South African designer Gideon and with not a dry eye amongst their 80 guests, the two shared each others vows and started their life together as Mr & Mrs van der Walt.¬†As a symbol of his love Nicky give his bride a rose with the message that his love for her keeps growing just as a rose grows from a tiny bud. Later Lee-Ann loosened her hair and changed into a gorgeous Gavin Rajah creation, her second wedding dress. Spending the day with their closest friends and family, the newlyweds enjoyed their reception into the evening, put together by celebrity event panner Nick Nicolaou. To reminisce on some pics of this special day, see YOU Magazine’s coverage here:¬†www.you.co.za.
