15 of the best Asian wedding venues London has to offer

Your wedding celebrations are one of the most special and important experiences of your entire life, so it’s no surprise that couples want their wedding venue to understand their cultural or religious needs. That’s where our round-up of the best Asian wedding venues in London comes in, complete with all the spaces, facilities and catering options you could possibly want or need for a truly special day.

If you are part of London’s large Asian community, or marrying into it, it can be difficult to pinpoint an Asian wedding venue in the capital that is able to cater to your needs. Of course, the Asian community is diverse within itself, with the requirements of a Sikh wedding different to that of a Muslim wedding. Nonetheless, traditionally weddings in Asian communities are large-scale and lavish affairs, with the guest list often running into the hundreds. That is why it is important that the venue that you choose is able to accommodate for large parties, while still retaining a sense of warmth and grandeur.


To help you on your wedding planning journey, we have rounded up a huge range of venues in London, with our curated selection featuring banqueting halls, sky-high venues and buildings which are steeped in history. If it’s an East London Asian wedding venue you're after, then take a look at The Barbican for a suitably spectacular option. We’ve also included a couple of cheap Asian wedding venues in London if you’re trying to stick to a budget, as well as London’s best Asian wedding halls for those planning a big bash and require a large space. There are also a few modern options too, including alternative and somewhat quirky venues that are sure to get your guests talking and are great conversation starters.

Typically, the key elements of an effective venue need to be a large capacity, excellent catering options and a sense of wow-factor that will impress and thrill your guests. Our pick of the most attractive Asian wedding venues London has to offer all have their own individual merits, whether that be sweeping views of the capital’s skyline or original oil paintings from eras gone-by.

Whether you are on the hunt for a large blank canvas venue where you can really make your vision come to life, or you would prefer a venue with built-in wow factor, our carefully-curated list is sure to have something that takes your fancy.
