Gamtoos Valley Wedding Tiaan & Carina:
Men sometimes call their wives “my other half”. That’s quite apt. Adam without Eve is like a violin without a bow. God gave Eve to Adam to fill that part lacking in him. She was to be his completer, not competitor. Marriages are made of real people in a unreal world.
Tiaan & Carina is a couple that are very real in love and very real committed to marriage.
This special wedding tool place in the Gamtoos Valley at the Kwagga NG church.
Scripture: Mark 10:6-9
The name Gamtoos catches in the back of the throat with a guttural stop so typical of the wonderfully descriptive Afrikaans language. The word probably originated from Dutch settlers, who called the Khoikhoi clan in the area ‘Gamtousch’, although others argue that it means ‘the roaring lion’ and refers to the sound of the Gamtoos in flood. Lying adjacent to the Garden Route, just over an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth the Gamtoos Valley is home to the three little villages of Hankey, Loerie and Patensie, and is a vibrant mix of citrus, potato and tobacco farming that forms a collage of cultivated fields and orchards.
Regarded as the gateway to the Baviaans Wildernis area, the valley is a treasure trove of beautiful scenery and interesting landmarks that stretch all the way up to Komdomo, where the Baviaanskloof route begins.
