Wedding bells for idol Jacques
F YOU were among the many whose hearts fluttered and who dreamed that one day they would woo and wed blond former gymnast and operatically trained singer Jacques Terre’blanche, star of M-net’s Idols and Survivor South Africa: The Maldives, you might be a little disappointed to learn the hunk has now tied the knot.
The recording artist recently married model Charne Slee in a fairy-tale wedding and heat magazine was allowed exclusive access.
Melinda Shaw, the editor-inchief of the magazine, says the power pair exchanged vows at Diep In Die Berg, a pictureperfect venue in Pretoria.
Commenting on the bride’s dress, Shaw says Slee and Terre’blanche were at a bridal expo last year when they both stopped in their tracks.
“Jacques immediately said that it was the one. The ivorycoloured dress is an Ian Stuart design made from French lace and Italian silk,” adds Shaw.
“It took three months for the dress to be made and imported from London, leaving the final fittings until two days before the wedding.
“Jacques, in turn, was dressed by designer Diaan Daniels.”
Shaw says Slee was not only calm and composed on her big day, but also insisted on helping with all the finer details – like dressing the flower girls herself.
Also revealed in the fivepage spread on the wedding in this week’s heat magazine are details on Slee’s final walk to the altar and how she lost 6kg before the big day.
Moving on to something worth catching on Dstv tonight… consider switching over to the History Channel for a good episode in the second season of the popular series,
IMUD MEN, in which Johnny Vaughan and Steve Brooker continue digging, delving and unearthing interesting things along the banks of London’s River Thames and beyond.
Follow them as they have a muddy good time in their hunt for buried treasure and hidden history.
The Thames has been the lifeblood of London for thousands of years as a major site for trade, crime, industry and war. For food, drink, death and debauchery, and even as
PICTURE: HEAT MAGAZINE/WALDO SWIEGERS the capital’s giant rubbish bin.
Britain’s most iconic river is one of the world’s richest archaeological sites and the Society of Thames Mudlarks has been finding the treasure there since 1976.
Mudlarks are the only people legally allowed to dig on the foreshore of the Thames, but now-licensed Mudlark and official “Mud God” Brooker will show Vaughan the tricks of the trade.
They will recover the “rubbish” and artefacts from the thick, black mud in which it they have lain enveloped for years, even centuries, to reveal a unique and original perspective on London’s rich history.
Armed with metal detectors, trowels and shovels, the pair dig along the banks of the Thames uncovering a whole manner of artefacts.
This leads them on a quest through the streets of the capital and to the Museum of London to unlock the secrets of a remarkable past.
