Congratulations are in order! After a romantic and lavish rehearsal dinner, former Miss South Africa and Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters has married former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow in an “intimate sunset ceremony” surrounded by their family and friends at the La Paris Estate in Cape Town.
The starlet kept it all local with a dress, hair and makeup by local service providers.
Following nearly two weeks of pre-wedding festivities and celebrations, former Miss South Africa and Miss Universe titleholder Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and former NFL player Tim Tebow have officially tied the knot.
The pair landed in South Africa a few weeks ago and Demi began her trip by having the bachelorette experience of a lifetime surrounded by her besties at the Sun City resort in North West.
They then made their way to the Western Cape for their breathtaking wedding ceremony at La Paris Estate in Cape Town.
Demi tied the knot in a custom-made David’s Bridal gown which she reportedly paired with diamond and pearl earrings from Marion Rehwinkel Jewellery, as seen in the exclusive photos she and Tim sold to America’s People Magazine for an undisclosed amount.
The ceremony included elements from both American and South African cultures and traditions – something that was really important to both Demi-Leigh and Tim. “We’re both very traditional,” Nel-Peters told PEOPLE. “We wanted to look back at the wedding and see that it was intimate, elegant, and traditional. We definitely wanted it to be something that we could look back on and know that nothing was dated. We want to remember this day for the rest of our lives.”
Guests were treated to a delicious meal which included steak, mussels, assorted cheeses and pasta including a salad made of baby spinach, bacon, berries, cucumbers, vinegar and olive oil. “It’s such a simple salad,” Demi-Leigh admits, “but we eat it all the time and it’s delicious. So we wanted it to be part of the wedding.” The wedding cake was a Keto-friendly cheesecake and neither the bride or the groom saw the cake before the ceremony. “We choose a cheesecake,” Demi-Leigh says. “That way, Tim can stick to his diet.”
