Tanit’s modelling agency in South Africa refused to divulge the venue of the wedding but, judging by the photographs of her bachelorette party, it’s clear some of the celebrations were in Cape Town.

The photographs she shared on Facebook showed her at a gypsy-themed party on Clifton beach with her mother, sister and friends.

“Surrounded by my girls, my mom and sister . . . we laughed, cried, danced and ate amazing food. What a night to celebrate true love and being a bride-to-be. My girls mean everything to me and I am so grateful for their love and support -- especially my sister, who threw this amazing gypsy-themed party. What a magical night . . . “ she wrote.
