Marriage in Africa




I am at a wonderful wedding at Spier called Moyo. This is a venue that seeks to bring an African theme to the evening. The afternoon began with drumming and ululating women who escorted the bride to the guests. After the vows we were danced out by the drummers. And later a praise singer opened the feast while our faces were painted in traditional style. I am privileged to live in such a wonderful part of the world.

Ah, Spier... Some of my best memories are from Spier!

Watching 'Tanie Evita Bezuidenhout' (Pieter Dirk Uys), wine tasting, picknicks on the lawns, and one very blessed lunch at Moyo.

The most recent memory was a cycle past there this weekend. What a beautiful place!

Blessings,

Hi Pete

The main reason the wedding was so wonderful was thanks to your AMAZING service!! :-) We absolutely loved every minute of it - from the serious and spiritual parts, to the lighthearted and humorous moments... You really set the tone for the day!

So a massive THANK YOU for making our wedding so special!

Love from,
Greg & Liz Hutchison
