If you’re in the midst of planning an Asian wedding or multicultural celebration, you’ll want to make sure the venue is perfect. Some of the most popular venues for traditional Asian weddings include banqueting halls and outdoor venues, as these can accommodate for a large number of guests. Weddings are an extremely important part of most Asian cultures, so it’s likely that you’ll want to invite your extended family and your friends as well as your partner’s. Between the two of you, you might have hundreds or even a thousand guests! Finding a venue with such a large capacity might sound difficult but these venues have capacity for at least 1,000 people.
The elegant Marriott hotel in London has reception rooms which have capacity for up to 2,000 people, making it ideal for an Asian wedding. Based in the heart of Mayfair, Grosvenor House’s Great Room is one of London’s most enchanting wedding destinations, with spectacular city views and plenty of natural light. The excellent transport links to the venue from the rest of London make it easy for all of your guests to arrive on time. In addition, you and your guests can continue the celebration into the early hours if you choose to book luxurious rooms in the hotel. Grosvenor House is particularly suited to Indian weddings, with plenty of space to make your wedding day every bit as memorable as you’d like it to be.
Another luxurious London hotel, The Dorchester has capacity for up to 1,000 people. There are ten event spaces in total, each one is elegant and accommodating of Asian wedding celebrations. The Dorchester event rooms can be personalised and decorated to suit your needs, which is particularly important for Asian weddings. The dedicated event team at the hotel can help you to plan your event, provide fine dining catering and even floral arrangements to help you to create the ideal wedding solution.
The Natural History Museum
If you’re planning a more contemporary and quirky Asian wedding, the Natural History Museum could be the perfect venue. The iconic London museum has space for up to 1,200 people and can provide one of the most dramatic backdrops to your ceremony. If you’re hosting a wedding in the summer you can take advantage of the outdoor space available in the modern Darwin Centre courtyard, as well as the Romanesque North Hall.
Alexandra Palace, or Ally Pally as it’s affectionately known by Londoners, has capacity for up to 2,000 guests. The Victorian-style venue is most commonly used for concerts and music events, but with stunning views across London it also makes the perfect Asian wedding venue destination. The Great Hall has a vast central space which is framed by four impressive columns, making it ideal for both the ceremony and the reception. If you require additional space, the Great Hall can be combined with the smaller West Hall, so you have plenty of flexibility to make the space work for your wedding.
