Pretoria Wedding Venue: Real Weddings – Romantic Classic

Nicky & Shawn – 23 November 2013

“To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.” – Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our wedding. Intundla is beautiful and serene and offered everything we needed for our Romantic Classic Bush Wedding. Our guests kept telling us what a lovely venue Intundla is and they are very eager to return. Thank you to the staff at Intundla for making our day so special.

Shawn and Nicky van der Meulen got married at Intundla Game Lodge & Bush Spa on Saturday 23 November 2013.

Shawn & Nicky’s Story ~

For Shawn the attraction to Nicky was instantaneous, the beautiful blonde single girl that had just come from a long-term relationship. For Nicky apparently not and she needed to be reminded of who Shawn was when their mutual friend Othelia very subtly had to enquire if Nicky was interested in getting together. They met often enough and generated some sparks but despite their shared love of the bush, birds, music and Lions rugby … stayed friends for a while.

She’s my best friend and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.” 


“The more time we spent together the more I realised how in love I was with the introverted, bush loving lawyer.”



But Shawn is an over-achiever and after only one year of him pining for the love of his life Nicky finally surrendered her heart and 7 years later they tied the knot on their memorable wedding day at Intundla Wedding Venue.
