Dreaming of a traditional Asian wedding or a multicultural celebration that incorporates the best of both worlds? You’re in the right place. Tagvenue lists hundreds of London’s most popular Asian wedding venues, from luxurious hotel ballrooms to traditional Hindu wedding venues.
Most popular venues for Asian weddings:
Banqueting halls – an elegant space lends a real sense of occasion to a reception.
Outdoor venues – pretty gardens and parks make picture-perfect backdrops.
Luxury venues – a grand or impressive venue will build excitement around your event.
Manor houses – stately homes and charming country houses are both popular choices.
Dry hire venues – a fantastic option if you’re planning to hire your own Asian wedding caterer or you’re after a cheap Asian wedding venue.
So what’s the best way to go about planning an Asian wedding? Personalising your wedding is a fantastic way to show off your culture and amp up the festive atmosphere. Wear a traditional Asian wedding dress, serve cocktails or non-alcoholic drinks made with your favourite flavours from home, include local delicacies, chaat or street food on your menu, or order a wedding cake with a fun design, like a henna-inspired cake or a spring-inspired cherry blossom cake. And if you're planning a themed wedding, make sure to choose a venue that will complement it.
Popular Asian wedding themes:
Royal – decorate your venue with rich silk drapes and incorporate elements from regal. weddings, such as folk performers, puppet shows or a procession of musicians
Bollywood – dress up as iconic movie stars, roll out the red carpet and make your first dance a choreographed Bollywood number (hire a videographer to capture all the fun!).
Paper and origami – use paper flowers instead of real flowers for your centrepieces and hang paper parasols or Japanese paper cranes (traditionally folded by the bride and groom for luck) from a focal point.
Arabian Nights – host your wedding reception in a Bedouin tent or marquee, complete with Moroccan furnishings and carpets, and have fire dancers for entertainment.
Far East – decorate your venue with shoji-style paper lanterns, lucky bamboo plants, river stones and orchids arranged in gorgeous sprays.
Colour-specific – use traditional Indian wedding colours (red, yellow and green), traditional Chinese colours (red and gold) or, for a celebratory atmosphere, embrace a host of vibrant colours (oranges, purples, cerise pinks, etc.) and encourage female guests to wear eye-catching saris.
Remember that when it comes to planning a wedding, it’s the little touches that will make your day truly memorable, whether that means burning your favourite incense, stocking your candy bar with individually-wrapped Korean confections, or sending your guests home with personalised fortune cookies.
Planning an Indian wedding? Indian weddings are epic celebrations of love. Known for their festive atmosphere and traditional ceremonies, planning a South Asian wedding can be overwhelming. Here at Tagvenue we’ve shortlisted the best Indian wedding venues in London so you can focus on your main priority – making your special celebration magical.
Whether you’re organising an authentic South Asian wedding or are hoping to put a modern twist on a traditional Indian union, planning with purpose is key, especially for larger celebrations. Add a touch of elegance to your event by holding your South Asian wedding somewhere special, like a banqueting suite or ultra-modern city centre hotel, or choose a unique space that'll wow your guests, like a gorgeous garden or charming country house.
How to find your dream Asian wedding venue:
Write a guest list to help establish a budget and determine what size venue you need (a space for under 100 guests, 500 guests, 1000 guests, etc.).
Decide on a wedding date (or a handful of potential dates) before you start searching for a venue.
Think about where you’d like your venue to be located (central London, Croydon, Harrow, Wembley, etc.) and if you’re looking for a particular type of venue (Muslim wedding venue, halal wedding venue, Pakistani wedding venue, Indian wedding venue, etc.).
Note down the spaces you’ll need (space for a Hindu mandap, dancing, etc.) and make sure to consider rituals or ceremonies that take place before and after the wedding that you might want to perform (Mehndi party, Sangeet, Doodh Pilai, Walima event, etc.).
Make a wet weather plan if you intend to hold your wedding outdoors.
Choose a venue that reflects who you are as a couple.
Once you have a shortlist of Asian wedding venues that meet your criteria, it’s time to schedule some viewings. A site inspection will give you a chance to hash out some of the nitty-gritty details and make a final decision.
Details to ask about when viewing a wedding venue:
Whether you’ll have exclusive use of the venue?
What public transport connections and parking facilities there are?
How long you’ll have access to the venue before your wedding is scheduled to begin?
Who will be responsible for the decorations?
If you can do a menu tasting and whether the in-house catering team can accommodate special dietary requirements (halal, vegetarian, etc.)?
Whether there are any restrictions about noise, photography or fireworks?
What time your guests have to leave the venue?
What the hire fee includes (check what furniture and equipment you can use, as well as who’ll supply the linen, crockery and service staff)?
When looking for an Asian wedding venue, check out venues with hourly hire rates starting at £70 for a blank-canvas space. Daily hire for wedding venues starts at £1000. Many London venues offer wedding packages that can start at around £1500. Keep in mind that off-peak, and peak offers may vary greatly, so if you’re flexible about your wedding date and time you can ask venue managers for more details on the rates. (Based on Tagvenue data.)
With its great public transportation system no place in London is too far to be reached by your guests, but if you want to ensure easy access, look for venues near tube stations. By following the tube, you will also be able to find venues away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. If your guests are flying into London, book a venue near the airport of their arrival. For breathtaking views, you can hire a venue right by the Thames River. A rooftop venue in Central London can also provide amazing views of London’s famous skyline.
With the plethora of Asian wedding venues we have on offer, you are sure to find just what you dream of. But if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, consider hiring a blank canvas space, which you can transform to fit your needs. We encourage you to contact a venue manager before booking the venue to ask whether you would be able to decorate or transform it to your liking.
Some of our top recommendations include The National Gallery, right in the heart of London, which will provide you with an elegant wedding experience. How about a wedding and a sightseeing cruise? City Cruises Ltd will let you have both at the same time. With top-notch wedding packages, Outlands Park Hotel is another great option for a fantastic small to medium-sized celebration.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
