South African rugby player Willie le Roux is officially off the market!

 The Springbok fullback married his longtime partner Holly Clare Nichol in Franschhoek a few days ago. 

Holly, who officially changed her name to Le Roux on Instagram, wore a gorgeous custom-made gown designed by Veil Bridal Couture's Christine O’Kennedy.

She shared several pictures of her wedding dress on social media.

"Mr & Mrs Le Roux," she wrote. 

Willie, who was dressed by FRANK Bespoke, told Sarie magazine that he felt like the luckiest man in the world.

"I was happy, emotions were running high. When Holly was walking down the road I thought, ‘Wow, can one man be so lucky?’"

Willie and Holly announced their engagement in June 2023. "Everything," Holly said about the romantic picnic proposal.

The couple, who are currently on honeymoon in Mauritius, has already bought a house together. Holly revealed in a 2022 post that they built their dream home. 

"Over a year and a half later and we’ve finally moved into our home! Building a house from scratch is no easy feat but if you have the right person by your side and, an experienced team to put your ideas in place then you can really create something quite unique," she wrote

Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Le Roux!
