We are not a large organisation or a profit-making venture and normally hire rooms in a centre, which costs money. In order to pay for the hire charges and other related costs there will be an entrance fee of £10 or more, depending on the event. Given that other marriage events are charging up to £50, and bearing in mind that the average costs for weddings often go into the thousands, this is very reasonable for a community based project. Think about it like this – for brothers, they are saving at least 5 trips to the “Ambala” (an Indian sweet shop), and for sisters, no cooking is required and you can meet up to 5 potential spouses under one roof. To prevent the whole “village” from attending, a maximum of two Mahrams are allowed to attend each event.
7. Is there a charge and why?
