Hi Cocoabean, firstly congratulations!
I will be Congolese engaged and getting married to a Nigerian and so I really can connect when it comes to fusing two countries together!
There is certainly a thread for “2015 brides” regarding the African/Caribbean Forum and there is certainly a complete much more as much as date articles with similar brides.
I’m May 2015 so a few months to get and may fortunately state i actually do n’t have that much left to do even though there are things i must do but is not done until nearer enough time.
Just exactly How have you been getting on?
I will be Ghanaian marrying a man that is nigerian August in 2010. Every thing right now is going well, aside from a few somewhat unhappy family members and in-laws regarding the measurements of the wedding. We’re having approx 110 when it comes to time and 150 for the night. The shock can be imagined by you! I am nevertheless getting a couple of small digs but hey-ho its our time and our spending plan lol, therefore we’ll do so how exactly we are interested a lot of the time and make allowances somewhere else. Whereabouts are you currently 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 know SoLucky We cant wait and I also have always been extremely very excited. Although we keep having desires associated with the operating purchase for the time and wanting to consider something that i’ve missed out lol.
We’re 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 will you be engaged and getting married?
I am aware that which 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. We have simply told individuals who the ceremony is actually for family members and buddies although most think these are generally a friend that is close days lol. And so the night is especially for buddies and my h2b has plenty of nigerian buddies lol.
Aren’t getting me started in regards to the operating purchase ambitions, At as soon as i am wanting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon sense informs me its absurd from making list after list because you can’t but that doesn’t stop me!
As 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 we wish to invite but try not to have the space, yet our company is needing to make allowances for folks we do not understand!
You’re neighborhood ish to me personally! We have been engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor home in Watford however the house is in Edgware.
Hope that you do not mind me personally asking but they have you been pla ning on supplying transportation between your church and location? I am presently undecided.
Hi ya I am Ghanian and preparing a belated 2015 wedding. I’m not used to the post and also delighted you dudes have begun. I will be actually fighting venues maybe not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset as it’s like we try not to occur! Please what venues have actually you opted for? I’ve a predicted take a seat visitor of 110 night +30/40. I would personally choose anywhere Herts, Essex, or Surrey but near to London. We fellowship in Chiswick. In addition like venues with architectural features for pictureque. Any help will be valuable
Haha SoLucky you’re exactly like me endless listings!!
Aww yeah we have been near my fiance’s house is in Barnet.
Well we’ve large amount of away from city guests but my uncle that is in control of those guests has stated he can hire a mini van. But since the place generally is no more than 10 minutes from church we proposed simply getting cabs or vehicle sharing. Have you got large amount of visitors which need transportation? Could you ask a dependable member of the family to stay cost with this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings therefore I began in search of venues which allowed outside caterers. In all honesty it is better to look for venues that enable you to definitely make your caterers that are own have actually a selection of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find a complete lot of venues within the areas you talked about. I’m able to e-mail you a listing of venues that I helped and collated me personally in narrowing down my location. Also provide you seriously considered utilizing accommodations 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 you to definitely generate your own caterers. I’m making use of Favour occasions as well as on their site they will have a listing of venues they cater at therefore you should always always check them out even merely to get a listing of other venues that are possible. Inform me if you want more assistance and you also want that e-mail. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Totally comprehend in regards to the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or permit you to make 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 High Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring is likely to caterers and chair a max of 110 when it comes to wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry is likely to caterers) with around 200 for an evening 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 anymore information is needed by you!
NubianBride – which is fab that the church can be so near! We had been planning to take a good look at Hendon Hall also because as previously mentioned it is close to my loved ones home but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more basic, so we’re staying with our regional church. While 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 once more wanting to arrange for every eventuality, i am wondering whether or not to employ a mentor. In the event lol. A tremendously high priced in the event!
I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the food is wearing both occasions been good!
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 now been very useful and supportive while having a good location list on the site.
The best venues are considering with stunning historic architectural features are listed below. However I want they certainly were within reasonable monetary means and therefore permits for external caribean catering that is african.
Banqueting hallway London
Kew Gardens, simply to name a couple of.
I wish to go out of the resort hotels and marquees if posible.
I have appeared around watford (since that is where We most many the full time lol) but We questioned the commute from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need to break within the times e.g. Ceremony on and reception Saturday friday. Will dsicover! As you of you talked about it is thought by me could be perfect to shortlist then come to a decision.
