Our Story


FROM GERDIE


Where do I start? How about the night we met. I was the maid of honor at my best friend Lecia's wedding. I actually met Mark the day before the wedding. We were introduced and made small talk about "the couple", but I was sure there was something more, I was hoping there might be something more and there was.

The next year was like a whirlwind while we made our long distance relationship bloom, who says it can't be done? When I moved for my work I was excited to see what this would mean for our relationship. We could see each other any time we wanted now, and we did, almost every day.

FROM MARK


Gerdie is unlike any person I have ever met. She's loving, kind, gentle, patient, and did I mention hot!? She's many more things, but those are the gifts I learned about her very quickly.

Knowing and growing closer to Gerdie has been life changing. I'm not going to say 'wind beneath my wings' because that could be used against me for the rest of my life, but she has indeed made me a better person. I love her with all my heart and look forward to the day I call her my wife.

About the Venue


Nestled at the foothills of the Zwartkops Mountains in the Cradle of Humankind, Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa is a comfortable forty minute drive from both Sandton and Pretoria.

The stillness of Kloofzicht Lodge is embodied by water as the lodge, comprising sixty suites, overlooks six exquisite fly fishing dams and the lower reaches of the Blaauwbank Spruit, which meanders through the unspoilt Zwartkops gorge. Five star hospitality and service is the trademark of Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa and can be found from our conferencing and banqueting to our wedding, leisure and spa facilities.

If you can think of anything that I don't cover in this section just let me know.
