With Asian weddings come tradition and even though the day itself is steeped in tradition, there are times of the year that are considered better than others when it comes to arranging your wedding. Some dates are more favourable and are considered to be more favourable while there are other dates that should be avoided. As with most weddings, the summer is one of the most enjoyable and magical times of the year to hold a wedding. It is a great time for the couple, the guests and your London Asian wedding photographer can take some great shots too. Therefore, we discuss below some of the best dates for your wedding as well as some of the dates that you should avoid.

Hindu Vedic Astrology

It is traditional for Asian couples to turn to astrology as a way of determining when the best time is to hold their Asian wedding. Using Hindy Vedic Astrology, the couple that are due to get married will need to identify their individual Zodiac signs. This will help them to find the most suitable date for their wedding but it will also help them to gain a further understanding of each other and determine whether they are completely suitable for each other.

However, if you really do want to get the best results, then it is recommended that you visit an aiding astrologer who will be able to assist you. They will be able to identify the astrological sign of the groom and how it correlates with the moon. They will also do the same for the bride but instead of the moon, they will determine its correlation with the sun. Using this information, the astrologer will have the ability to identify a date for the wedding that is likely to be successful.

Akshaya Tritiya

Perhaps you are not too keen on paying an astrologer a visit. If this is the case then you might want to book your wedding day on Akshaya Tritiya as this could prove to be just as successful. This is a festival that takes place during spring each year and it is celebrated by Hindus and Jains. Akshaya means “Imperishable and Eternal” which is how you would describe any successful marriage. Tritiya means “Third” and this is in relation to the third lunar day, which is present in the Hindu calendar during the spring month of Vaisakha. If you are thinking of this, it is recommended that you find a venue and book it as soon as possible. As this is a date that is considered auspicious by Hindu’s and Jain, it is going to be highly popular with those who are looking for a special Asian wedding.

So, what dates should you avoid?

While there are good times of the year to get married, there are also a number of unfavourable dates that you should avoid. However, the date that you decide upon is completely down to you but if you want to stick to tradition then you should avoid these dates.


Given the fact that the Hindu calendar is lunar based, every month will have a specific day that is known as Amavasya. What this means is that on this particular day, it is forbidden for anyone to get married. The word Amavasya actually means dark moon and this simply relates to the fact that on this particular day in the month, it is not possible to see the moon.


Shraddha is another period in the calendar that is considered to be inauspicious and that means that it is not suitable for a wedding. This is not a day but instead, it is a two-week period during the month of September that falls 15 days before the festival of Holi. What this means is that it is a time that is thought to bring bad luck for marriage. Despite this, the dates change each year. Therefore, if you are thinking of getting married during this time then you should make sure you check the dates as it can also cross over into October.

So, at this point you know what days of the calendar are suitable for an Asian wedding. With this in mind you can arrange your big day and when you do this, you are going to need to make sure that you put a photographer in place. A professional Asian wedding photographer will ensure that they capture your day perfectly, ensuring that the memories last forever. As a result, you are going to need to make sure that you book a photographer that has the ability to understand and fulfil your needs.

The Importance of Professional Photography For Your Asian Wedding

At Royal Bindi, we take great pride in ensuring we capture your day in the right way. We don’t need to tell you just how important your wedding day is but we can tell you how important it is to use the services of a reputable photographer.

The truth is, you won’t want any regrets after your wedding day because the photos that are captured cannot be recaptured and so, you need to make sure you make the right choice. We know that we are right when we say that you are going to want to be able to look back on your wedding day with fond memories, especially when you have them in front of you.

As a result, you want a photographer who understands your wishes, considers your needs and delivers. It is really simple but you would be amazed at how many photographers get it wrong. Some force people to smile, some force the couple to adopt awkward poses while others are simply not cut out for the job in hand. Therefore, you need to know that your photographer is going to listen to you. Perhaps you want staged photos, perhaps you don’t but whatever it might be, you can be sure that your chosen photographer can gain an understanding.

With a structure plan in place, we can ensure that we capture every element of your wedding in a way that works for you. We minimise disruption and capture each individual moment with ease. Our seamless service slots in and goes unnoticed, giving you the chance to focus on what really matters.
You might be surprised to hear that many people question the need for high-quality wedding photographs. They question why you pay the prices you pay and they don’t quite understand why you pay the money and don’t get to see the results until after the day but that is just the way it works. However, while you might not like the idea of waiting, it is all part of the process because this is how we document your wedding day, pick the right shots and deliver final images that will blow you away. It is as much about capturing the finer details as it is capturing the main elements of the day because they all come together to create images that bring your memories to life. This is why we are known for creating distinctive images because we do things professionally and we do things in the way that they should be done.
