Just just just How have you been getting on?

I will be Ghanaian marrying a man that is nigerian August in 2010. Every thing at this time is going well, aside from a couple of relatives that are slightly unhappy in-laws regarding the size of the wedding. We have been having approx 110 when it comes to and 150 for the evening day. You are able to imagine the surprise!

Whereabouts are you currently based?

NubianBride you have not got long to get at all! It should be exciting though. Whereabouts will you be engaged and getting married?

I am aware SoLucky We cant wait and I am extremely really excited. Although I keep having goals associated with operating purchase associated with time and attempting to think about something that i’ve missed down lol.

Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception place is approximately 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall resort. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?

I am aware everything you suggest about unhappy family members we now have 100 time visitors although We have placed a supplementary dining table out for all “uninvited guests” as well as present i must say i do not discover how numerous will arrive at night. We have simply told individuals who the ceremony is truly for household and friends although many think these are generally a friend that is close times lol. Therefore the is mainly for friends and my h2b has a lot of nigerian friends lol evening.

Don’t get me started in regards to the running purchase desires, At the minute i am wanting to account fully for EVERY eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd as you can not but that does not stop me personally from making list after list!

As you, i have kept an extra dining table for ‘un-invited’ guests but i am just starting to resent it somewhat as you will find people you want to invite but try not to have the space, yet we have been needing to make allowances for individuals we do not understand!

You’re regional ish to me personally! We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor household in Watford nevertheless the house is with in Edgware.

Hope that you do not mind me asking but have you been pla ning on supplying transportation involving the venue and church? I am presently undecided.

Hi ya I am planning and ghanian a belated 2015 wedding. I will be not used to the post and also pleased you guys have begun. I will be actually fighting venues perhaps perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset given that it’s like we usually do not occur! Please exactly exactly exactly what venues have actually you plumped for? We have a believed take a seat visitor of 110 night +30/40. I might choose anywhere Herts, Essex, or Surrey but near to London. We fellowship in Chiswick. In addition like venues with architectural features for pictureque. Any assistance shall be valuable

Haha SoLucky you will be similar to me endless listings!!

Aww yeah we’re near my fiance’s home is with in Barnet.

Well we have great deal of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle that is responsible for those guests has stated he can employ a mini van. But since the place generally is no more than 10 minutes from church we advised simply getting cabs or vehicle sharing. Have you got a complete large amount of guests which need transportation? Would you ask a dependable member of the family to stay fee with this?

Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in shopping for a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings thus I began hunting for venues which allowed outside caterers. To tell the truth it is better to look for venues that enable you to definitely make your very own caterers or have actually a list of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find great deal of venues in the areas you talked about. I will e-mail you a summary of venues that I collated and aided me personally in narrowing down my place. Likewise have you considered utilizing hotels such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find many in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and enable one to make your caterers that are own. I’m making use of Favour Activities as well as on their site they usually have a summary of venues they cater at so that you should always always check them out even simply to get a summary of other feasible venues. Inform me if you’d like any longer help and you also want that e-mail. Good luck xx

Thank you for visiting the forum! Totally comprehend concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or enable you to generate your very own caterers. As you possibly can be flexible with location, this could start you as much as more areas. I will be engaged and getting married in High Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring in your caterers and chair a maximum of 110 for the wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to bring in your caterers) with as much as 200 for a night reception (though for me 200 is chaturbate a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilizing Eat Jollof London ( same group behind Jollof Pot). Inform me if anymore information is needed by you!

NubianBride – that is fab that the church can be so near! We had been planning to take a look at Hendon Hall aswell because as previously mentioned it is close to my loved ones house but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more basic, therefore we’re staying with our neighborhood church. Given that area is fairly rural there is not actually any general public transport near by, with me once again trying to plan for every eventuality, I’m wondering whether to hire a coach so we are doing the car share but. In the event lol. A really high priced in case!

I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the meals is wearing both occasions been excellent!

Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.

Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.

I’ve been in touch with our african caterers of that they have already been very useful and supportive and also have a venue that is good on their site.

The best venues are thinking about with gorgeous historical architectural features are listed below. However I desire they certainly were within reasonable economic means and that permits for external african/ caribean catering.

Banqueting hallway London

Kew Gardens, in order to name a couple of.

I’d like to go far from the accommodations and marquees if posible.

I’ve seemed around watford (since this is where We many many the full time lol) but We questioned the drive from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need to break up the days e.g. Ceremony on Friday and reception Saturday. Will discover! As you of you talked about i believe it could be ideal to shortlist then decide.
