I will be Ghanaian marrying A nigerian guy in August this present year. Every thing right now is certainly going well, aside from a few slightly unhappy loved ones and in-laws from the size of the marriage. We have been having approx 110 when it comes to and 150 for the evening day. It is possible to imagine the surprise!

We’re engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic north london, finchley and our reception location is mostly about 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall resort. Where abouts have you been engaged and getting married?
I’m sure everything you suggest about unhappy loved ones 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. I’ve simply told individuals who the ceremony is actually for family members and friends although most think they’ve been a friend that is close times lol. So that the night is principally for buddies and my h2b has lots of nigerian buddies lol.
Do not get me started in regards to the operating purchase ambitions, At the minute I’m wanting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd from making list after list because you can’t but that doesn’t stop me!
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 neighborhood ish to me personally! Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor household in Watford however the family home is in Edgware.
Hope that you don’t mind me personally asking but they have you been pla ning on supplying transportation involving the church and location? I am presently undecided.

Well we’ve a complete large amount of away from town visitors nevertheless my uncle who is in control of those guests has stated he’ll employ a mini van. But due to the fact location generally is just about 10 minutes from church we recommended simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Have you got a complete large amount of visitors which need 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 to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I began looking 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 actually a list of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find large amount of venues into the areas you talked about. I am able to 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 example Holiday Inn and Hilton, you will find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and invite you to definitely make your very own caterers. I’m utilizing Favour occasions and on their site they will have a listing of venues they cater at so that you should always always always check them out even merely to get a listing of other feasible venues. Inform me you would like that email if you need any more help and. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Entirely comprehend concerning 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 am 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 when it comes to wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to carry in your caterers) with as much as 200 for an night reception (though I think 200 could be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are utilising Eat Jollof London ( exact exact same group behind Jollof Pot). Inform me if you’ll need anymore information!
NubianBride – that is fab that the church is really so close! We had been likely to check out Hendon Hall also because as previously mentioned it really is close to my children house but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more neutral, therefore our company is staying with our chaturbate regional church. Whilst the area is fairly rural there is not actually any trains and buses near by, therefore we are performing the vehicle share however with me personally again attempting to arrange for every eventuality, I’m wondering whether or not to hire a mentor. In case lol. A really costly in case!
I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the meals is wearing both occasions been great!
