286 Asian Venues
Few things demonstrate better the way that Asian Britons have brought colour and energy to our nation than the Asian wedding, though of course lumping every Asian culture together in that way is pushing things. Venues that make special efforts to attract an Asian clientele know – or rapidly find out – that this is a very demanding market, where the scale of things can often put the clichéd running-buffet British do in the shade: the numbers invited, the length of the celebrations, and the expected standard and breadth of the culinary component. And all that within what tends to be a very family-oriented event. Within this section you will find a venue or two that are themselves Asian in nature, but also plenty of places of a more traditional British stripe – castles and great houses, schools and sports grounds, fine hotels and brasseries, all keen and ready to host your great day.
