We have been 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 are you currently engaged and getting married?
I understand that which you suggest about unhappy loved ones we’ve 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 simply told people who the ceremony is actually for household and good friends although many think these are typically 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.
Aren’t getting me started concerning the operating order goals, At as soon as i am wanting to account fully for EACH eventuality, conmon feeling informs me its absurd as you can’t but that does not 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’re neighborhood ish to me! Our company is engaged and getting married in a church that is catholic pinner after which a manor home in Watford nevertheless the home is with in Edgware.
Hope that you do not mind me personally asking but have you been pla ning on supplying transportation involving the venue and church? I am presently undecided.

I will be really experiencing venues maybe maybe perhaps not catering for AfricN/caribean weddings. I’m therefore upset since it’s like we don’t occur! Please what venues have you opted for? We have a projected take a seat visitor of 110 night +30/40. I might prefer 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 may be the same as me endless listings!!
Aww yeah we have been near my fiance’s house is in Barnet.
Well we’ve a complete large amount of away from city visitors but my uncle who’s in control of those guests has stated he can employ a mini van. But due to the fact place generally is no more than 10 minutes from church I recommended simply getting cabs or automobile sharing. Are you experiencing large amount of visitors which need transportation? Would you ask a dependable member of the family to stay in fee for this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. The struggles are remembered by me in trying to find a venue that catered to African/Caribbean weddings and so I started in search of venues which allowed outside caterers. To tell the truth it is better to look for venues that enable you to definitely make your caterers that are own have actually a directory of African/Caribbean caterers you need to use. You can find a complete large amount of venues within the areas you talked about. I will e-mail you a summary of venues that we helped and collated me in narrowing down my location. Also provide you seriously considered utilizing resorts such as for example getaway Inn and Hilton, you will find many in Herts/Essex that appeal to African/Caribbean weddings and enable one to make your caterers that are own. I’m making use of Favour occasions as well as on their internet site they will have a summary of venues they cater at so that you should always check them out even simply to get a summary of other possible venues. Inform me you would like that email if you need any more help and. Good luck xx
Welcome to the forum! Totally realize concerning the trouble in finding venues that either have actually afro/caribbean caterers or permit you to generate 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 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 breakfast (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 utilising 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 is indeed close! We had been likely to take a good look at Hendon Hall as well because as stated it really is close to my loved ones house but my fiance preferred to somewhere get married more neutral, therefore we’re staying with our neighborhood church. Since the area is very rural there isn’t actually any trains and buses near by, with me once again trying to plan for every eventuality, I’m wondering whether to hire a coach so we are doing the car share but. In case lol. An extremely high priced in the event!
I have had a few buddies utilize Favours, the foodstuff has on both occasions been good!
Hi ha dudes. Congrats too! Lol.
