Former South African cricketer Jacque Kallis walked the down aisle with his longtime girlfriend, Charlene Engels. However, it was not just a wedding, rather a ‘fiery wedding’. The couple tied the knot at the Bona Dea Estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus on January 14, 2019. But their wedding was on the verge of being cancelled due to wildfires that took place at their venue and ended up spoiling the same. The incident took place two days prior to their wedding. However, the couple decided to go on with their nuptials as scheduled as Charlene took to social media and shared the news.
According to a South-African news portal, around 300 stems of ‘ice-white’ hydrangeas from Spain and 200 phalaenopsis orchid plants from Singapore were arranged for their wedding rituals. The bride took to her Instagram and shared a beautiful picture of the duo, confirming the news of them getting married amidst the fire. In her post, Charlene wrote that the couple is beyond excited to start their new chapter in the book of their fiery relationship. She further teased that the couple now needs to keep the fire burning in their marriage. Well, congratulations to the beautiful couple for getting married amidst sparks.
