Nicky & Cris's Real Wedding

Cris and Nicky met at an exhibition and stayed in contact. When Cris moved to Cape Town with her one year old twins the friendship really blossomed. Cris supported Nicky through a difficult time, and they realised they’d fallen in love. The couple married in a civil ceremony after Cris proposed. 

Cris & Nicky-The Happy Couple

Nicky and Cris first met at the CITCC when Cris had travelled there for an exhibition. Their relationship truly took off when Cris moved nearer to Nicky and supported her through a difficult time.

Cris presented Nicky with an engagement ring which had been created by one of the parents from the preschool that Nicky runs, where Cris is a teacher. The couple gave the goldsmith an old white gold ring, which he transformed into a beautiful ring with a diamond in a tension setting.

Cris proposed to Nicky on New Year’s Eve, just as the countdown was taking place. She got down on one knee in front of all of their friends and as the new year rolled in, Nicky said yes! Cris jokes that Nicky made her wait until 2013 to answer her 2012 proposal!

After a nine month engagement, the couple married in a beautiful, purple-themed wedding.
