Help me! I need to find a venue

:\? Hello everyone, I really need some help, I'm really struggling to find a plush venue for my wedding reception. We are getting married next year at the end of May, and being of Nigerian parents need to find a beautiful venue in London that will seat around 300 people. As I am sure some of you can understand the catering is very very important and my parents have said that they will take care of this, but finding a venue of our choice that will allow us to take control of the catering is proving to be difficult, so far they all seem to be insisting that they cater for us. Does anyone have any ideas?



thx

    Hi,

    You could try the decorum - excuse spelling, You do have to pay a bit for the venue hire, its based in North London. Or you could try caterers like Favours, Angels etc, they have venues that they can use and they are based in London. They are african / west indian caterers and should be able to help out.

    the list is endless.......will put up more when i can remember. IN MY OPINION, IF UR BUDGET IS UNDER £5K (like mine) for a venue, then FORGET HOTELS AND CONSIDER BANQUETING HALLS. THESE HALLS HAVE AMPLE PARKING, KITCHENS, LET U BRING UR OWN CATERERS AND ARE ALL DONE UP TO LOOK CLASSY SO U DON'T NEED DECORATORS.

    Hi Abidix,



    I called the Penridge today actually, considering them for my wedding in May 09. They charge £3,500 if you want to use your own caterers (inc use of kitchen, tables and chairs) but Favours is actually their preferred caterer. If you want to do it that way they charge £35 per head (inc room hire). Their number is 020 8362 0881. Hope this helps x
