Former Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and her American partner Tim Tebow are officially a married couple

The couple tied the knot in a romantic sunset ceremony at Cape Town’s La Paris Estate.

Demi-Leigh walked down the aisle in a custom-made dress from popular American store, David’s Bridal. The 2017 Miss Universe recently featured as a model in the bridal store’s new “clean and modern” capsule collection. 

Demi-Leigh told People magazine that she looked at 50 dresses before deciding on her final look.

“I was all over Pinterest. I wanted to find something sleek and elegant and timeless,” she told the publication.

The bridesmaids also wore dresses from David’s Bridal. 

Around 260 guests were invited to the wedding. Miss World 2015 Rolene Strauss and Demi-Leigh’s pageant coach, Werner Wessels, were on the guest list. 

The couple made sure to incorporate both American and South African influences on their big day

The menu included steak, pasta and mussels. 

“We’re both very traditional. We wanted to look back at the wedding and see that it was intimate, elegant and traditional,” Demi-Leigh told People

The groom had his own wedding cake – a keto-friendly cheesecake. 

“I’ve been looking forward to three things. The first moment I see her in her wedding dress, the first kiss and the first dance together as man and wife. It’s such a special night,” Tim told the publication. 

People magazine had exclusive rights to the wedding pictures and was the first to share an image of Demi in her wedding dress. 

The couple’s South African wedding planner, Zavion Kotze-Brereton, shared a picture of the bride and groom on Instagram

“CONGRATULATIONS Mr and Mrs Tebow @timtebow @demileighnp – it has been a TRUE honour. All I can say is WOW,” he wrote. 

Before their big day, Demi-Leigh and Tim welcomed their international guests to South Africa with two days of fun festivities.

Demi-Leigh wore a white jumpsuit by local designer, Gert Johan-Coetzee, and she wore a Anel Botha dress for her rehearsal dinner. 

Congrats, Mr and Mrs Tebow!
