Her veil fit­ted in at the cen­tre of her slicked-back hair. In the post he wrote: “Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you Ch­es­ney van Niek­erk! So blessed to start this next ad­ven­ture with the girl of my dreams!” Van Niek­erk is an Olympic and world cham­pi­onship gold medal­list and holds the world record at 43.03sec.
