The first big decision you will make will be the time of year you wish to get married and then, of course, choosing the venue. Get this part right and the foundations will be laid in place for everything else to follow.
Asian weddings are a big affair and a huge cause for celebration bringing two families together and highlighting the importance of honouring age-old traditions. Your venue of choice will know this. Choose a venue that is on board and tries wholeheartedly to understand the significance and importance of every cultural ritual the day will entail. The sales team at Gibson Hall have attended an Asian wedding course in order to develop a better understanding. We have learnt that a traditional wedding ceremony not only consists of religious rituals that unite the bride and groom but also their families.
In the Asian culture, strengthening and maintaining close ties with both immediate and extended family is vital. For most Asians, family plays a major role in making important life decisions and your venue will understand that the key decision makers usually consist of many family members.
Gibson Hall are so passionate about Asian catering that we even have our own caterers that our Asian clients prefer. Mazaa is the Asian wedding caterer. Our team boasts an innovative, imaginative flair for creating memorable Asian and Indian wedding experiences.
Our authentic food is lovingly created by our trusted chefs who are led by World Master Chef Pramodkumar Prasanthbhavan Maniyan. They use the freshest and finest seasonal ingredients to create delectable dishes which will both excite and entice your guests.
We offer full banqueting services for Asian and Indian weddings, including event design and management. Our dedicated team can take care of every detail; from helping you decide on the venue, food and decoration, to choosing the perfect music, furniture and lighting.
Always keep in mind that you cannot and will not please everyone, there will be people on your guest list with very different opinions and tastes to you. Don’t worry about them.
Modern Asian couples are beginning to do things their own way and some of the extravagance of a time gone by is being simplified. Every new generation brings about change and ultimately people will understand this. This does not mean you need to change everything: the old traditions have been around for centuries for a reason and people do love to see them.
Weigh up all the pros and cons and do remember that a good venue will know that there are no problems but always solutions.
