Our Story

If you haven’t heard our story yet, where have you been living for the last 13 years? In short – aimless, shaggy (ex-) philosophy student (English) gets first “real” job as “Bird Trainer”. Meets gorgeous, vivacious Marine Scientist (Afrikaans) (also, confusingly, working as a “Bird Trainer”). December 26th, 2007: Bird Training Philosopher, working and thirsty, suggests ‘after work drinks’. Work mates cheer. Only person to actually show up is gorgeous Bird Training Marine Scientist (who also, incidentally, found the only open pub). Luckiest day ever. The rest is history…almost.

When Doug and Monique met...
That day everything changed...

Ons 'verlowing'

Dertien jaar later, sit ‘n niksvermoedende man (nog steeds ‘n bietjie scruffy) en rustig visvang. Toe spring ‘n pragtige meisie uit die bosse en vra of sy ‘n vraag kan vra. Die man, nou verward want die meisie het al reeds ‘n vraag gevra toe sy gevra of sy ‘n vraag kan vra, se “Ja, okay.” Toe fluister die meisie, so saggies soos ’n muis, “Wil jy met my trou?” Gelukkigste dag ooit. En nou is ons hier. Om meer geskiedenis te maak. Ons sal geëerd wees as julle almal saam daar kan wees vir die begin van ons volgende reis…

RSVP

Please RSVP by no later than 30 April 2021 (we’ll send a reminder closer to that date). We have chosen a lovely, intimate venue which does carry with it some space limits. As a result, we can only accommodate 60 people and have had to make some very tough choices on who to invite and who to keep on the waiting list. If you are certain you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can fill those seats with other friends and family. Also, when you RSVP, please provide us with your postal address so that we can send a formal invitation to that address as well.
