Hi Cocoabean, firstly congratulations!
I’m Congolese engaged and getting married to a Nigerian therefore I really can connect when it comes to fusing two countries together!
There clearly was a thread for “2015 brides” from the African/Caribbean Forum and there clearly was lot more as much as date posts with comparable brides.
I will be May 2015 so a couple of months to get and certainly will fortunately state i actually do perhaps not have that much left to complete even though there are things i must do but is not done until nearer enough time.
Just exactly How are you currently getting on?
I will be Ghanaian marrying a man that is nigerian August this season. Every thing right now is certainly going well, aside from a couple of somewhat unhappy family members and in-laws regarding the size of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 for the and 150 for the evening day. You are able to 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 get it done the way we want to buy a lot of the some time make allowances somewhere else. Whereabouts are you currently based?
NubianBride you have not got long to get after all! It should be exciting though. Whereabouts will you be engaged and getting married?
I am aware SoLucky We cant wait and I 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.
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 resort. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?
I understand everything you suggest about unhappy loved ones we now have 100 time visitors although i’ve put an additional table out for many “uninvited guests” as well as current i truly dont understand how numerous will generate at night. We have just told individuals who the ceremony is truly for family members and good friends although many think these are generally a good friend these days lol. So that the night is especially for buddies and my h2b has plenty of nigerian friends lol.
Aren’t getting me started in regards to the operating purchase goals, At the minute I’m 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 if you, i have kept an extra dining table for ‘un-invited’ guests but i am just starting to resent it somewhat as you can find individuals we wish to invite but do not 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 nevertheless the home is in Edgware.
Hope that you don’t mind me personally asking but have you been pla ning on supplying transportation amongst the church and place? I am presently 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 suffering venues not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be so upset as it’s like we try not to occur! Please just exactly what venues have actually you opted for? We have an approximated take a seat visitor of 110 night +30/40. 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 will be similar to me endless listings!!
Aww yeah we have been near my fiance’s house is with in Barnet.
Well we’ve a complete great deal of away from city visitors nevertheless my uncle who’s responsible for those guests has said he will employ a mini van. But as the location generally is just about 10 minutes from church we advised simply getting cabs or vehicle sharing. Are you experiencing great deal of visitors which need transportation? Can you ask a dependable member of the family to stay cost for this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I started 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 a list of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You will find lot of venues within the areas you pointed out. I am able to e-mail you a summary of venues that I collated and aided me personally in narrowing down my place. Also provide you seriously considered using resorts such as for example getaway Inn and Hilton, you can find many in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and enable one to make your caterers that are own. I’m utilizing Favour occasions as well as on their web site they redtube.zone will have a range of venues they cater at which means you should always always check them out even in order 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 concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or permit you to make your very own caterers. You up to more locations as you can be flexible with location, this may open. I am engaged and getting married in tall Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring is likely to caterers and chair a maximum of 110 for the wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry in your caterers) with around 200 for an evening reception (though for me 200 will be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilising Eat Jollof London ( 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 likely to check out Hendon Hall aswell because as previously mentioned it really is close to my children house but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more basic, therefore we’re staying with our neighborhood church. Whilst the area is fairly rural there is not actually any trains and buses near by, therefore we are doing the automobile share however with me yet again attempting to policy for every eventuality, i am wondering whether to employ a mentor. In the event lol. A really high priced in case!
I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the meals is wearing both occasions been excellent!

We have seemed around watford (since that is where We most numerous enough time lol) but We questioned the commute from Chiswick to Watford Or i might need to break up the days e.g. Ceremony on Friday and reception Saturday.
