It perhaps came as no surprise that Jeannie D’s wedding resembled something fit for a Top Billing episode.

The South African television presenter, radio personality, businesswoman, model and actress tied the know with her Prince Charming in an ceremony surrounded by friends and family late last week.

The occasion took place on Friday, 26 January, at the couple’s home on the Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town.

Jeannie had kept the identity of her now husband private until the big day.

However, social media posts uploaded by guests in attendance indicated that the 41-year-old was now ‘Jeannie B’.

After some investigation by The South African website, it has been confirmed that the lucky groom is Capetonian Brandon Bekker.

Bekker matriculated from SACS in Newlands in 1991.

He played Craven Week rugby in his matric year and represented Western Province in rugby, squash and waterpolo.

He obtained a BA degree from Stellenbosch University, during which time he played first team rugby for Maties.

After working at Dimension Data – among other companies – as an Enterprise Account Manager and Sales Director, Bekker moved to Mimecast in January 2008 where her enjoyed several roles in his 15 year employment.

His time at Mimecast culminated in his appointment as Senior Vice-President EMEA (Emerging Markets Europe and Africa).

Bekker confirmed on his LinkedIn page that he left the company in May 2023.

In his farewell post, Bekker wrote that ‘he would be taking a long break and enjoying the opportunity of re-designing his life away from the corporate world’.

Jeannie and Brandon reportedly met through mutual friends ‘some time ago’ but kept their relationship under wraps.

It was only at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France that pictures started to surface that love was in the air.

INSIDE THE LUXURY WEDDING 

In picture posted by guests on Instagram, the Bekkers said their “I do’s” while overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

STUNNING DECOR – AND WEDDING CAKE

Jeannie’s colourful and tropical decor likely reflected her Portuguese heritage.

GUESTS HAD A BLAST TOO!

In a clip posted by Juliana Vasconcelos, wife of Top Billing’s Janez Vermeiren, guests were seen dancing the night away on the dance floor to live entertainment.

In a post in December 2023, Jeannie shared a picture of herself and her bae at a themed Peaker Blinders party.

She liked a comment that read: “You found your prince that you so deserved! Trust me they better at 50!”
