I would like to relate with brides become which may be preparing comparable days to mine which will be a Ghanaian & Nigerian collaboration. I will be planning for a belated 2015 wedding, We nevertheless have actually a great deal to complete! Exactly How are you currently getting on?

Hi Cocoabean, firstly congratulations!

I will be Congolese engaged and getting married up to a Nigerian thus I will surely connect with regards to fusing two cultures together!

There is certainly a thread for “2015 brides” regarding the African/Caribbean Forum and there’s lot more as much as date articles with comparable brides.

I will be May 2015 so a few months to get and will thankfully state i actually do maybe not have that much left to complete though there are things i have to do but can not be done until nearer the full time.

Just just exactly How will you be getting on?

I will be Ghanaian marrying A nigerian guy in August this season. Everything at present is certainly going well, aside from a few relatives that are slightly unhappy in-laws in the size of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 when it comes to and 150 for the evening day. The shock can be imagined by you! 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 exactly how we need it 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 are you currently engaged and getting married?

I am aware SoLucky I cant wait and I also have always been extremely very excited. Although I keep having dreams associated with the operating purchase associated with the time and attempting to think about something that i’ve missed down lol.

We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception place is all about 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall resort. Where abouts have you been engaged and getting married?

I am aware that which you mean about unhappy loved ones we now have 100 time visitors although We have placed an extra dining table out for many “uninvited guests” as well as current i truly do not understand how numerous will generate later in the day. I’ve simply told people who the ceremony is truly for family members and buddies although many think they’ve been a friend that is close times lol. And 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 desires, At the minute i am attempting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon sense informs me its absurd as you can not but it doesn’t 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 slightly as you will find individuals we wish to invite but do not have the space, yet we have been being forced to make allowances for folks we do not understand!

You’re regional ish to me personally! We are 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 that you do not mind me personally asking but they have you been pla ning on providing transportation between your church and location? I am currently undecided.

Hi ya I am Ghanian and preparing a belated 2015 wedding. I will be a new comer to the post and also delighted you dudes have begun. I will be actually experiencing venues maybe maybe not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset since it’s like we try not to occur! Please exactly what venues have actually you selected? We have a believed 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 will be valuable

Haha SoLucky you’re exactly like me endless listings!!

Aww yeah we have been near my fiance’s home is in Barnet.

Well we’ve a complete lot of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle that is in control of those guests has said he can employ a mini van. But due to the fact location generally is just about 10 minutes from church we advised simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Are you experiencing great deal of visitors which need transportation? Can you ask a family that is reliable to stay fee for this?

Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings thus I began trying to find venues which allowed outside caterers. To be truthful it is better to look for venues that enable you to definitely generate your caterers that are own have actually a list of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find great deal of venues within the areas you talked about. I could email you a summary of venues that I collated and aided me personally in narrowing down my place. Also provide you seriously considered utilizing resorts such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and permit one to make your caterers that are own. I’m making use of Favour Events as well as on their site they will have a summary of venues they cater at therefore you should always always always check them out even simply to get a summary of other possible venues. Inform me if you want more assistance and also you 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 permit you to generate your caterers that are own. As you’re able to be versatile with location, this could start you as much as more areas. I’m 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 for the wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry in your caterers) with as much as 200 for an night reception (though in my experience 200 could be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilizing Eat Jollof London ( exact same group behind Jollof Pot). Inform me if you will need anymore information!

NubianBride – which is fab that the church is indeed near! We had been likely to check out Hendon Hall as well because as previously mentioned it is close to my children home but my fiance preferred to get hitched someplace more basic, so our company is staying with our neighborhood church. Given that area is fairly 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 meals is wearing both occasions been great!

Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.

Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.

We have been in touch with our african caterers of that they have now been very useful and supportive and now have a good location list on their site.

The perfect venues are considering with beautiful historic architectural features are listed below. However I want these people were within reasonable monetary means and that enables for external caribean catering that is african.

Banqueting hallway London

Kew Gardens, in order to name a couple of.

I would really like to go out of the accommodations and marquees if posible.

I’ve appeared around watford (since this is where We many many enough 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. Will discover! As you of you pointed out it is thought by me could be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.
