I will be Ghanaian marrying a man that is nigerian August this present year. Everything right now is certainly going well, aside from a couple of somewhat unhappy family members and in-laws from the measurements of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 for the time and 150 when it comes to night. You can easily imagine the surprise!

Our company is 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 understand that which you suggest about unhappy family members 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 just told people who the ceremony is truly for family members and friends although many think they truly are a good friend these times lol. And so the night is primarily for buddies and my h2b has lots of nigerian buddies lol.
Do not get me started concerning the operating purchase desires, At as soon as I’m attempting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd as you can not but it doesn’t stop me personally from making list after list!
As if you, i have kept an extra dining table for ‘un-invited’ guests but i am starting to resent it somewhat as you can find individuals you want to invite but do not have the space, yet our company is being forced to make allowances for folks we do not understand!
You’re neighborhood ish to me personally! We’re engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner then a manor household in Watford nevertheless the home is in Edgware.
Hope that you don’t mind me personally asking but they have you been pla ning on supplying transport amongst the church and place? I am presently undecided.
Hi ya I am Ghanian and planning 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 maybe not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset since it’s like we usually do not occur! Please just exactly just what venues have actually you opted for? I have a predicted sit back visitor of 110 +30/40 evening. I would personally 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 will be exactly like me endless lists!!
Aww yeah we’re near my fiance’s house is in Barnet.
Well we’ve large amount of visit the link away from city visitors but my uncle that is responsible for those guests has stated he can employ a mini van. But considering that the venue generally is just about 10 minutes from church we advised simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Are you experiencing a complete 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 trying to find a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings therefore I began shopping for venues which allowed outside caterers. To be truthful 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 need to use. You can find a complete large amount of venues within the areas you talked about. I’m able to e-mail you a listing of venues that we helped and collated me in narrowing down my location. Also provide you considered utilizing resort hotels such as for example getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and enable one to make your very own caterers. I am utilizing Favour occasions as well as on their internet site they will have a summary of venues they cater at therefore you should always always check them out even simply to get a summary of other venues that are possible. Inform me you would like that email if you need any more help and. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Entirely realize in regards to the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or enable you to generate your very own caterers. You up to more locations as you can be flexible with location, this may open. I will be engaged and getting married in High Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring is likely to caterers and seat a maximum of 110 when it comes to wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry in your caterers) with around 200 for an night reception (though I think 200 is 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 anymore information is needed by you!
NubianBride – that is fab that the church is indeed near! We had been planning to check out Hendon Hall aswell because as previously mentioned it really 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. While the area is very rural there is not really 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 the event lol. A very high priced in the event!
I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the meals is wearing both occasions been good!
