For Melinda Bam and Adriaan Bergh, Mr and Ms Right also turned out to be Mr and Miss South Africa.

The cherry on top of their already picture perfect love story is that Adriaan was crowned Mr South Africa 2011, and Melinda walked away with the Miss South Africa title that same year. 

How often does that happen? 

The couple, who met at the University in Pretoria in 2008, announced their engagement in 2013, following a holiday in Dubai - and the following year they were married. 

Adriaan told YOU that it was love at first sight when he first saw Melinda, saying: "I slapped my friend on the back and told him one day she would be my girl." 

Based on their Instagram feed, the couple has unlocked the secret formula to a happy life, and often share photos of their adventures together - It's like paging through a fairytale!

As if they're not cute enough already, the pair also recently welcomed a French Bulldog named Rover to the family. 

Melinda and Adriaan enjoy travelling and often let us in on their travel diaries through the lens of Instagram. Some of the places they've visited include Greece, Switzerland and Maldives.
