I’m sure 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.

Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception location is mostly about 10 mins away at Hendon Hall resort. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?

I understand everything you suggest about unhappy family relations 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. We have just told people who the ceremony is truly for family members and good friends although many think they truly are 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.

Don’t get me started in regards to the operating purchase desires, At the minute i am wanting 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!

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 personally! We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor household in Watford however the house is with in Edgware.

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

Hi ya I am Ghanian and preparing a belated 2015 wedding. I will be a new comer to the post as well as delighted you dudes have begun. I will be actually suffering venues maybe perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset as it’s like we usually do not occur! Please exactly just what venues have actually you opted for? We have an approximated sit back visitor of 110 night +30/40. 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’re the same personally as me endless lists!!

Aww yeah we have been close my fiance’s house is with in Barnet.

Well we’ve great deal of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle that is in control of those guests has stated he’ll employ a mini van. But since the place generally is just about 10 minutes from church we proposed simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Have you got lot of guests which require transportation? Can you ask a family that is reliable to stay cost with this?

Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in hunting for a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I began to locate 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 selection of African/Caribbean caterers you should use. You can find great deal of venues in the areas you pointed out. I’m able to email you a listing of venues that I collated and aided me personally in narrowing down my place. Have you considered utilizing accommodations such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you will find a number of in Herts/Essex that appeal to African/Caribbean weddings and invite you to definitely generate your very own caterers. I’m using Favour Activities as well as on their internet site they usually have a directory of venues they cater at which means you should always check them out even in order to get a listing of other venues that are possible. Inform me if you’d like any longer assistance and also you would really like that e-mail. Good luck xx

Welcome to the forum! Entirely understand 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 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 maximum of ?330 to bring is likely to caterers) with as much as 200 for a night reception (though in my experience 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 anymore information is needed by you!

NubianBride – which is fab that the church can be so near! We had been likely to take a look at Hendon Hall aswell because as previously mentioned it really is close to my children house but my fiance preferred to get hitched someplace more basic, therefore we are staying with our regional church. Whilst the area is fairly rural there is not actually any general public transport near by, therefore we are performing the vehicle share however with me personally yet again wanting to policy for every eventuality, i am wondering whether or not to hire a mentor. In the event lol. A really high priced in case!

I have had a few friends utilize Favours, the foodstuff is wearing both occasions been excellent!

Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.

Thank you NubianBride and SoLucky08.

The perfect venues are thinking about with stunning historical architectural features are listed below. However I desire these were within reasonable economic means and that enables for external african/ caribean catering.

Banqueting hallway London

Kew Gardens, in order to name several.

I’d like to go out of the accommodations and marquees if posible.

We have seemed around watford (since that is where We many many the full time lol) but We questioned the drive from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need certainly to break up the times e.g. Ceremony on Friday and reception Saturday. Will discover! As you of you pointed out i believe it could be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.
