Hi Cocoabean, firstly congratulations!

I will be Congolese engaged and getting married to a Nigerian therefore I really can relate when it comes to fusing two countries together!

There clearly was a thread for “2015 brides” in the African/Caribbean Forum and there’s much more as much as date articles with comparable brides.

I will be May 2015 so a few months to get and may fortunately state i really do perhaps not have that much left doing even though there are things i have to do but can not be done until nearer the full time.

Exactly just How have you been getting on?

I will be Ghanaian marrying A nigerian guy in August this season. Everything at this time is going well, aside from a few relatives that are slightly unhappy in-laws from the size of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 for the time and 150 when it comes to evening. You can easily imagine the surprise! I am nevertheless getting a couple of digs that are little hey-ho its our time and our spending plan lol, therefore we’ll take action the way we want to buy most of the some time make allowances somewhere else. Whereabouts have you been based?

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

I am aware SoLucky We cant wait and I also am 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’re engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception place is mostly about 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall Hotel. Where abouts have you been getting married?

I understand everything you mean about unhappy family members we now have 100 time guests 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 have simply told individuals who the ceremony is actually for household and good friends although many think they’ve been 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 purchase desires, At as soon as i am attempting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd since you can not but it doesn’t stop me personally 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’re regional ish to me! Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor home in Watford however the home is with in Edgware.

Hope you never mind me personally asking but have you been pla ning on supplying transportation amongst the venue and church? I am currently undecided.

Hi ya I am planning and ghanian a belated 2015 wedding. I will be not used to the post and also delighted you dudes have begun. I will be actually fighting venues perhaps maybe not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I’m so upset as it’s like we usually do not occur! Please just exactly just what venues have actually you opted for? I’ve a projected 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. We also like venues with architectural features for pictureque. Any help will be valuable

Haha SoLucky you will be exactly like me endless listings!!

Aww yeah we’re close my fiance’s house is in Barnet.

Well we’ve lot of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle who’s in control of those guests has stated he can employ a mini van. But since the location generally is just about 10 minutes from church we advised simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Have you got lot of visitors which need transportation? Would you ask a reliable member of the family to stay fee with this?

Welcome Shi and congratulations. I recall the battles in shopping for a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings thus I began trying to find venues which allowed outside caterers. In all honesty 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 should use. You can find large amount of venues into the areas you pointed out. I could e-mail you a listing of venues that I 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 will find many in Herts/Essex that appeal to African/Caribbean weddings and permit one to generate your very own caterers. I’m utilizing Favour Activities as well as on their web site they usually have a summary of venues they cater at and that means you should always always check them out even merely to get a summary of other feasible venues. Inform me if you want more help and you also would really like that e-mail. Good luck xx

Thank you for visiting the forum! Entirely comprehend in regards to the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or permit you to make your very own caterers. As you are able to be versatile with location, this could start you as much as more areas. 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 is likely to caterers) with as much as 200 for a night reception (though in my experience 200 will be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilising Eat Jollof London ( 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 likely to take a good look at Hendon Hall also because as stated it really is close to my children house but my fiance preferred to get hitched somewhere more basic, therefore we’re staying with our regional church. Due to the fact area is very rural there is not actually any trains and buses near by, so we are performing the pornhub automobile share however with me personally once more wanting to arrange for every eventuality, i am wondering whether or not to employ a advisor. In case lol. A really high priced in the event!

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

Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.

Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.

I’ve recently been in touch with our african caterers of that they have already been very useful and supportive and possess a good place list on the web site.

The ideal venues are thinking about with breathtaking historic architectural features are listed below. However I want these people were within reasonable economic means and therefore enables for external african/ caribean catering.

Banqueting hallway London

Kew Gardens, merely to name several.

I wish to go away from the resort hotels and marquees if posible.

We have appeared around watford (since this is where We many many the full time lol) but I questioned the drive from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need to break up the times e.g. Ceremony on and reception Saturday friday. Might find! As you of you talked about i believe it will be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.

SoLucky08 High Elm Manor appears really lovely and just exactly what a deal that is amazing! Great to learn that Jalloff Pot are behing Eat Jallof London them online under their old name because I was trying to find.
