Hi Cocoabean, firstly congratulations!
I will be Congolese engaged and getting married to a Nigerian and so I will surely connect when it comes to fusing two countries together!
There clearly was a thread for “2015 brides” regarding the African/Caribbean Forum and there’s much more as much as date articles with similar brides.
I will be May 2015 so a few months to get and certainly will fortunately state i really do n’t have that much left to accomplish even though there are things i must do but is not done until nearer enough time.
Exactly How have you been getting on?
I will be Ghanaian marrying A nigerian guy in August in 2010. Every thing right now is certainly going well, aside from a couple of somewhat unhappy family members and in-laws from the size of the marriage. We’re having approx 110 for the and 150 for the evening day.
The shock can be imagined by you! I am still getting a couple of digs that are little hey-ho its our time and our spending plan lol, therefore we’ll get it done how exactly we are interested a lot of the some time make allowances elsewhere. Whereabouts have you been based?
NubianBride you have not got long to get after all! It should be exciting though. Whereabouts are you currently engaged and getting married?
I am aware SoLucky We cant wait and I also have always been extremely really excited. Although we keep having goals regarding the operating purchase regarding 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 venue is all about 10 minutes away at Hendon Hall Hotel. Where abouts are you currently engaged and getting married?
I understand everything you suggest about unhappy family members we now have 100 time visitors although i’ve placed an additional dining table out for many “uninvited guests” and also at current i must say i do not understand how numerous will arrive later in the day. I’ve simply told individuals who the ceremony is truly for family members and good friends although many think these are generally a friend that is close times lol. And so the night is principally for buddies and my h2b has plenty of nigerian buddies lol.
Aren’t getting me started in regards to the operating purchase goals, At the minute i am wanting to account for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd since you can not but that does not stop me personally from making list after list!
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 you want to invite but do not have the space, yet our company is needing to make allowances for folks we do not understand!
You’re regional 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 house is in Edgware.
Hope you never mind me personally asking but they are you pla ning on providing transportation between your venue and church? I am presently undecided.

I will be actually fighting venues perhaps maybe perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I will be therefore upset as it’s like we usually do not occur! Please exactly what venues have actually you selected? I’ve an calculated sit back visitor of 110 night +30/40. I might choose anywhere Herts, Essex, or Surrey but near to London.

Are you experiencing a complete great deal of visitors which need transportation? Might you ask a dependable member of the family to stay cost with this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. I recall the battles in to locate a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I began in search of venues which allowed outside caterers. To tell the truth it is better to look for venues that allow you to definitely make your caterers that are own have a selection of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find a complete great deal of venues into the areas you pointed out. I will e-mail you a listing of venues that I helped and collated me personally in narrowing down my place. Also provide you seriously considered using resort hotels such as for example getaway Inn and Hilton, you will find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and invite one to make your caterers that are own. I’m making use of Favour occasions as well as on their web site they will have a directory of venues they cater at so you should 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 you also want that e-mail. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Entirely realize concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or enable you to make your very own caterers. You up to more locations as you can be flexible with location, this may open. I’m engaged and getting married in High Elms Manor in Watford, they charge ?3 per person to bring is likely to caterers and chair a maximum of 110 when it comes to wedding break fast (so a maximum of ?330 to bring is likely to caterers) with as much as 200 for a night reception (though I think 200 could be a little tight! ). They do however charge corkage (which we negotiated down). We are employing 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 really so near! We had been likely to take a look at Hendon Hall aswell because as stated it is close to my children house but my fiance preferred to get married someplace more basic, so our company is staying with our regional church. Due to the fact area is very rural there is not actually any general public transport near by, with me once again trying to plan for every eventuality chaturbate mobile, I’m wondering whether to hire a coach so we are doing the car share but. In case lol. A really costly in case!
