Might you ask a family that is reliable to stay in cost with this?
Welcome Shi and congratulations. I recall the battles 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 list of African/Caribbean caterers you should use. You will find a complete great deal of venues into the areas you talked about. I am able to e-mail you a listing of venues that I collated and assisted me in narrowing down my place. Also provide you seriously considered utilizing resort hotels such as for instance getaway Inn and Hilton, you will find a number of in Herts/Essex that focus on African/Caribbean weddings and permit you to definitely generate your very own caterers. I’m making use of Favour Activities as well as on their site they will have a listing of venues they cater at therefore you should always check them out even merely to get a summary 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 realize in regards to the difficulty 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 will be 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 bring is likely to caterers) with as much as 200 for an night reception (though in my experience 200 will 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 – that is fab that the church is indeed 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 house but my fiance preferred to get hitched someplace more basic, so our company is staying with our neighborhood church.
