Can anyone suggest any reputable expereinced Nigerian caterers?

Can anyone recommend any venue that is reputable? Usually the one I was thinking I had has disappointed me personally.

Decide to decide to try Yinke Ekundayo, Im making use of him or even the Solek team.

You will find a complete lot of Nigerian mags, that function a lot of pictures of Nigerian Trad clothes. Now individuals make plenty of contemporary western designs with trad material. The bridesmaids also sewed aso ebi, we went to a Nigerian tailor based in London for my wedding

Hi, im mixed-irish/jamaican, but my h2b is ghanaian(born uk but was raised over there and returned in belated teenagers). We looked for venues that would allow you to bring your own caterers, but they either charged pretty much the same as it would to have them cater, wouldnt allow it, or were social club type venues and we wanted something nicer when we first started planning.

We’re compromising now and achieving canapes that mirror our countries- soft drink bread and butter for my irish, bun & cheese for my jamaican, and wele that is kele their ghanaian. We’ll be making small booklets about the places our families result from (dublin, st thomas, accra & takoradi)to put in the tables to ensure guests that aren’t knowledgeable about our cultures will understand much more by the finish for the day.

We additionally considered changing into ghanaian old-fashioned gown, but as a bonus bride (im typically regarding the big stunning brides forum) I believe ill be that in deep love with exactly exactly how good i appearance within my dress i wont desire to just simply just take it off-ever, ive already told h2b im resting inside it, therefore the consumation will have to wait till the following day, i’ll desire to feel a lovely princess as long as poss.

I have talked to my h2b about finding a hip life dj, but he is explained he will handle all of that. My mum’s hiring a ciedhl (irish band), but my h2b believes getting an african dance team in is using it a bit far, he stated like they didnt or get a good beating from their other halves if we do we need to get some bashment and some yardie dancers!! -but i dont think many of our guest would approve, well the men might but they’d have to act! He may have recommended a soca that is good or steal musical organization, nonetheless it needs to go to your extreme!

I have perhaps maybe not ventured onto this forum prior to, but I would pop in once more once in a while. Best of luck along with your wedding preparations
