It was a beautiful day at Smeetham Hall Barn in Sudbury we enjoyed ourselves on 12.10.2019. I managed to achieve what I had been planning for a while this is from start to finish. However we had challenges with the venue owner Bridget as she found it difficult to work with people of colour. Several times we had to remind her that we were the bride and the groom. 6 weeks to the wedding we were told to hire a generator because we had plenty of things to plug. I understand the purpose of the generator and it would have been nice to be told way in advance. We bought petals from her florist and on the day she almost prevented us using them saying ‘we don’t do petals yet we had previously agreed and we bought the petals from her florist. We felt discriminated because of colour. It came across as if they were working with animals. The suppliers around her were very understanding and amazing e.g Splinters, Wilton & Flower, and Cloud Hill Flowers kept us going as at some point we felt like changing the venue. These suppliers I highly recommend you will not be disappointed. As for the venue owner if you are creative and a person of colour I would strongly advice you to think twice. It is a shame the venue is beautiful. If it was a different owner then believe me all the beauty will be found inside and outside. The decoration, flowers and the food was over and beyond . It was over satisfying and we are very happy to share pictures. However, The venue does not carter or represent ethnic minority. There is no diversity. It is a shame the treatment we got from the venue owner, Bridget. So many restrictions were imposed on us. On the website it says you can do fire works provided you buy them from their approved suppliers. However, it was never an option for us. On top of my job I am a Co Chair for our BAME (Black, Asian Minority & Ethnic) Network, so it pains me when people of colour are still facing discrimination. I believe we are all the same it is the heart and the soul that matters. The stereo typing still exists for people of colour and all we want is a chance to show that we can be civilised and continue to hope for equal treatment and opportunity.
