I will be Ghanaian marrying A nigerian guy in August this present year. Every thing right now is going well, aside from a few relatives that are slightly unhappy in-laws in the measurements of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 when it comes to and 150 for the evening day. You are able to imagine the surprise!

Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception location is approximately 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall Hotel. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?
I’m sure everything you suggest about unhappy loved ones we now have 100 day 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. We have just told individuals who the ceremony is actually for family members and good friends although many think they have been a friend that is close times lol. So the is mainly for friends and my h2b has a lot of nigerian friends lol evening.
Do not get me started concerning the operating purchase aspirations, At the minute i am wanting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its ridiculous since you can not but it doesn’t stop me from making list after list!
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 are regional ish to me! We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor house in Watford nevertheless the home is with in Edgware.
Hope that you do not mind me personally asking but they are you pla ning on supplying transportation involving the venue and church? I am presently undecided.

I will be actually fighting venues maybe perhaps perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset as it’s like we usually do not occur! Please just exactly what venues have actually you selected? We have an approximated take a seat visitor of 110 +30/40 evening. 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 might be exactly like me endless listings!!

Well we’ve a complete large amount of away from city visitors but my uncle that is in control of those guests has stated he’ll employ a mini van. But due to the fact place generally is just about 10 minutes from church we recommended simply getting cabs or car sharing. Are you experiencing large amount of guests which need transportation? Might you ask a dependable member of the family to be in fee with this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in shopping for a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings therefore I started in search of venues which allowed outside caterers. To tell the truth it is better to look for venues that enable you to definitely make your caterers that are own have actually a list of African/Caribbean caterers you should use. You will find large amount of venues in the areas you talked about. I am able to e-mail you a summary of venues that we helped and collated me personally in narrowing down my place. Have you seriously considered utilizing resort hotels such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and invite one to generate your very own caterers. I’m making use of Favour occasions as well as on their site they usually have a summary of venues they cater at so that you should check them out even in order to get a summary of other feasible venues. Inform me you would like that email if you need any more help and. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Totally realize concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or permit you to generate your caterers that are own. You up to more locations as you can be flexible with location, this may open. I will be engaged and getting married in tall 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 max of ?330 to bring in your caterers) with around 200 for an night reception (though for me 200 could be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are employing Eat Jollof London ( exact exact same group behind Jollof Pot). Inform me if you want anymore information!
NubianBride – that is fab that the church is indeed near! We had been planning to take a good look at Hendon Hall also because as stated it is close to my loved ones house but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more basic, therefore our company is staying with our local church. Because the area is very rural there is not actually any trains and buses near by, therefore we are doing the automobile share however with me personally once more attempting to arrange for every eventuality, I’m wondering whether or not to employ a mentor. In the event lol. A tremendously high priced in case!
I had a few friends utilize Favours, the meals is wearing both occasions been excellent!
Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.
Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.
We have been already in touch with our african caterers of that they have already been very useful and supportive and now have a venue that is good on the site.
The best venues are thinking about with stunning historic architectural features are listed below. However I desire they certainly were within reasonable financial means and that permits for external african/ caribean catering.
Banqueting hall London
Kew Gardens, in order to name several.
I’d like to go far from the resort hotels and marquees if posible.
We have appeared around watford (since this is where We most many enough time lol) but We questioned the drive from Chiswick to Watford Or I may need certainly to break up the times e.g. Ceremony on and reception Saturday friday. Will dsicover! As you of you talked about it is thought by me will be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.
SoLucky08 High Elm Manor appears really lovely and just just exactly what a deal that is amazing! Great to learn that Jalloff Pot are behing Eat Jallof London because I became attempting to see them online under their old title.
Thank you for for your efforts and we therefore want you good luck with organising and planning. We shall help keep you posted that which we decide.
