Wedding The Lodge Bethal

We at The Lodge Bethal was privilege to witness a very unique wedding.  Henk Griesel had asked Madelyn Rossouw numerous times to get married and she just was not ready to take the big step.  When she finally decide now is the time she called me to help her to plan a surprise wedding for them.  Every little detail was done so secretively that Henk did not suspect a thing. As there home is far away, he had to be lured to Bethal under the assumption they where attending a fundraising!  Saturday three December 2016 she asked him to join her at The Lodge Reception to greet us. Just there and then in the lobby without notice she gave the most romantic speech to him, and then ask him if he would be her husband. He was stunned and could barely say yes!  Little did he know the wedding would happen within minutes. Once Henk got over the shock of getting married, they walked on rose petals to where the Minister was waiting for them to unite them into marriage.  After they signed the registry, we celebrated with snacks and bubbly champagne with them to a long and happy marriage.

Grasslands Bethal

BETHAL – Lede van The Lodge Bethal het op Donderdag, 5 November 2015 ’n Indiese aand by Grasslands aangebied ten bate van Solidariteit Helpende Hand se Bethal-tak.

‘n Oud-Bethaller, mnr. Prakash Nagar van Namaskar Restaurant, het gesorg vir die Indiese geregte.

Hy het op Bethal grootgeword en was voorheen die eienaar van Poco Foods, voordat hy na Pretoria verhuis het.

“Ek het nou my eie Indiese restaurant en geniet elke oomblik daarvan.”

‘Chicken Tikka’ en ‘Seekhkebab’ was die voorgereg, terwyl die hoofgereg in drie etes opgedeel is.

Die eerste ete was ‘Butter Chicken’, die tweede ete ‘Lamb Masala’ en die derde was garnaalkerrie saam met Basmati rys.

Saam met elke gereg het inwoners ’n ander wyn gekry om saam met die ete te geniet.

‘Milk Dumplings’ en roomys is as nagreg bedien en gaste het dit omtrent geniet.

Volgens inwoners moet daar meer sulke funksies op die dorp gehou word.

Mnr. Clive Odendaal van Cape Legends het die wyn geborg en mense meer oor die verskillende soorte wyn ingelig.

Mnr. Kevin Dell en sy vrou, Annelize, van The Lodge Bethal het almal vir hulle hulp en ondersteuning bedank.
