Pretoria got its own love bridge during September 2014. The bridge is already loaded with lots of symbolic locks... and you kan still add your own lock to the bridge!
A lock is a symbol of eternity, safety, protection... and what better way to let someone know that you "lock" your love to him/her with an engraved lock on a love bridge?
Unfortunately it's not possible for everyone to fly to Paris, France for a weekend to put their lock on the Pont des Arts and toss the key in to the Seine. This romantic practice has travelled throughout the world and thanks to the initiative of Liezel van der Merwe, INTIEM magazine's managing editor, couples can now also do it in South Africa!
Love Bridge is FREE and open to the public in Magnolia Dell in the heart of Pretoria. Enjoy a cappuccino at Huckleberry’s and put your lock on the bridge.
Buy your own lock at any hardware stor like Builders Warehouse, and get it engraved at most jewelers or engraving businesses. Marriage Week made use of Trophy and Medal Boutique in Garsfontein, Pretoria.
