Cape Town – While Paris is begging tourists to say it with selfies rather than locks, Pretoria is inviting couples to declare their everlasting commitment on a brand new ‘bridge of love.’

From 6 September onward love birds will be able to attach a pad lock to a brand new specially designed bridge at Huckleberry’s in Magnolia Dell.

The construction of the bridge is a joint project between Marriage Week South Africa and Cool Capital 2014 Biennale and hopes to put Pretoria on the romance map for couples from around the country, and even the world.

According to Liezel van der Merwe, organiser of marriage week in South Africa, the bridge was inspired by Paris’ famous Pont des Arts, where couples attach specially engraved locks to declare their everlasting love.
