Photos: Springbok Willie, Holly share first wedding photos


If the stork doesn’t come to visit, then the wedding bells ring for the Springboks’ World Cup winning team of 2023.

The Springbok fullback Willie le Roux is the latest Springbok to say yes and on Monday shared a first glimpse of his wedding with Holly Clare Nichol with his fans on social media.

“Mr and Mrs Le Roux”, the couple shared in Instagram posts along with three gorgeous photos of their big day, which apparently took place in the Western Cape.

RNews earlier reported that Willie and Holly got engaged in June 2023, three months before the Springboks traveled to France for the 2023 Rugby World Cup tournament – where they reigned supreme in a nail-biting final against the All Blacks.

Congratulations for the newly married couple poured in from everywhere, with celebrities such as Francois van Coke and Rachel Kolisi, wife of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, reacting to their photos on social media.

Famous guests included Willie’s current and former Springbok teammates Schalk Britz, Jesse Kriel and Steven Kitshoff, as well as businessman Johann Rupert.

The Le Rouxs also finished building their dream home in the prestigious Val de Vie estate in the Paarl last year.

“I’ve been dreaming about this house in my head for years and it really is everything I imagined and more. I feel very blessed to call this special place my home,” Holly previously wrote on social media about their new home.
