I’m Ghanaian marrying a man that is nigerian August this current year. Every thing right now is going well, aside from a few relatives that are slightly unhappy in-laws regarding the size of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 for the and 150 for the evening day. You are able to imagine the surprise!

I am aware SoLucky I cant wait and I also have always been extremely really excited. That I have missed out lol although I keep having dreams of the running order of the day and trying to think of anything.
We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception venue is all about 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall resort. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?
I understand that which you suggest about unhappy relatives we now have 100 time visitors I really dont know how many will turn up in the evening although I have put an extra table out for those ”uninvited guests” and at present. I’ve simply told people who the ceremony is actually for family members and good friends although many think these are typically a friend that is close times lol. Therefore the is mainly for friends and my h2b has a lot of nigerian friends lol evening.
Do not get me started in regards to the operating order ambitions, At as soon as i am wanting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon sense informs me its ridiculous from making list after list because you can’t but that doesn’t stop me!
It slightly as there are people we would like to invite but don’t have the space, yet we are having to make allowances for people we don’t know like you, I’ve left a spare table for ’un-invited’ guests but I’m beginning to resent!
You’re regional ish to me personally! Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor home in Watford however the house is with in Edgware.
Hope that you don’t mind me personally 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 a new comer to the post and actually delighted you dudes have started. I’m actually experiencing venues maybe perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset as it’s like we don’t occur! Please just exactly what venues have actually you opted for? I’ve a predicted sit back visitor of 110 +30/40 evening. I might choose anywhere Herts, Essex, or Surrey but near to London. We fellowship in Chiswick. We additionally like venues with architectural features for pictureque. Any assistance will be valuable
Haha SoLucky you may be exactly like me endless listings!!
Aww yeah we have been near my fiance’s house is in Barnet.
Well we’ve a complete large amount of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle that is in control of those guests has stated he can employ a mini van. But as the place generally is just about 10 minutes from church I proposed simply getting cabs or vehicle sharing. Are you experiencing great deal of visitors which need transportation? Would you ask a dependable member of the family to stay in fee for this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. I recall the battles in to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I began to locate 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 directory of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You will find great deal of venues when you look at 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 location. Likewise have you considered utilizing resort hotels such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find a number of in Herts/Essex that appeal to African/Caribbean weddings and permit you to definitely make your very own caterers. I’m utilizing Favour occasions as well as on their site they will have a summary of venues they cater at therefore you should always check them out even in order to get a summary of other feasible venues. Inform me if you want any longer assistance and you also want that e-mail. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Totally realize concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or enable you to make your caterers that are own. As you are able to be versatile with location, this might start you as much as more areas. I’m engaged and getting married in tall Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring is likely to caterers and chair a max of 110 when it comes to wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry is likely to caterers) with as much as 200 for a night reception (though for me 200 could be a bit tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilising 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 close! We had been likely to check out Hendon Hall also because as stated it is close to my loved ones house but my fiance preferred to get hitched someplace more neutral, so we’re staying with our regional church. Whilst the area is very rural there is not actually any trains and buses 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 case lol. A really costly in case!
I had a few buddies utilize Favours, the foodstuff is wearing both occasions been good!
Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.
Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.
We have recently been in touch with our african caterers of that they have now been very useful and supportive and possess a venue that is good on their site.
The perfect venues are considering with breathtaking historic architectural features are listed below. However I want they certainly were within reasonable monetary means and that enables for external african/ caribean catering.
Banqueting hallway London
Kew Gardens, in order to name a couple of.
I wish to go out of the resorts and marquees if posible.
We have seemed around watford (since that is where We most numerous enough time lol) but We questioned the drive from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need certainly to break within the times e.g. Ceremony on Friday and reception Saturday. Will discover! As you of you pointed out it is thought by me will be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.
