Tiesto, real name Tijs Michiel Verwest, shared a snap of himself kissing the beauty in the middle of a field full of pink and white roses.

He added the simple caption: “Love of my life 21-09-2019”.

Vogue have reported that the pair were joined by just 80 guests at the swanky five-star resort Amangiri.

Annika told the publication: “A city that we both love a lot is Las Vegas, so we started looking at venues there, but we soon decided we wanted it to take place somewhere remote.

“We explored the option of throwing a party in the desert outside of Las Vegas.

“But when we got into that more, we knew it was going to be too complicated to pull off. That’s when we thought of Amangiri.

She added: “I felt overwhelmed with emotions because we have been in love for so long and thinking about this day forever, and then it was finally here.”

The model met Tiesto at a New York City restaurant in 2015, getting engaged last November.

Speaking of their first meeting, Annika added to the publication: “We started hanging out for the next two months, and when Coachella came around, we decided the day before to go together.

“We spent the weekend running around the festival and having the best time, just the two of us.

“When we didn’t get tired of each other for one second, and even flew back to New York City and still didn’t want to leave each other, that was when we both knew.”
