There are two things I learnt about Upington. It is freaking hot up there and one should just ignore people who wake you up at 3:00 in the morning by knocking down your door! Other than that my time up in Upington was a pleasant one! Conrad and Maryke were wonderfully generous hosts who made sure that I had everything that I needed. I was flown up and even given a nice little Polo from Conrad’s family’s VW dealership to drive around in!
The wedding was held at Bezalel, a charming venue just outside of Upington on your way to Keimoes. They set up the most gorgeous little picnic tents and made sure each guest received a nicely packed “boks vol goeters”. The guys got very stylish hats and the ladies red lipstick for the grand occasion.
The large number of guests at the wedding was testimony to the fact that Conrad and Maryke are what one would describe in Afrikaans as “mens se mense”. Warm, friendly and entertaining!
Conrad en Maryke, baie dankie vir ‘n baie aangename tydjie in jule mooie dorpie en by julle lekker troue! Mag julle huwelik ‘n baie geseende ene wees vol God se rykste genade, liefde en vrede! Mag die lewe julle lekker laat lag en mag julle elke dag meer en meer verlief raak op mekaar! Blessings xxx
