Having an outdoor wedding is one of the best things you can hope on any day in the Ugandan summer with no skepticism on whether it will fall that day. The idea of having cools winds blowing your way, the beautiful light of day that will, in the end, give you breathtaking wedding photos can be thinkably unmatched.

But today, let?s concentrate on two halls; Victoria Ballroom and Commonwealth Banqueting Hall. Both of them, at a price you won?t find anywhere with that breed of fancy, comes with lights, 2 LCD Projectors, Wooden Dance Floor, A/C platform for high table, round tables (10 seaters,) Banqueting chairs, Linen, Cutlery, Crockery and Service Personnel and-you didn?t see this coming- a one night bedroom suite on bed and breakfast basis for the couple.
The Commonwealth has a seating capacity of 500-700 guests while the Victoria Ballroom can seat up to 1000 guests.
All are armed with platforms that can serve as podiums/stages, and to answer your d
