The Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Bradford is the oldest Gurdwara in Bradford and therefore one of the most popular Gurdwaras for Sikh couples to get married. It is strongly recommended that you book your marriage date with the Gurdwara as early as possible, especially during the wedding season from June through September.

From our experience and observations as a Sikh wedding photographer at Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Bradford, we highlight the important things to consider when getting married there.

During the last few years, we have documented two Sikh weddings in this Gurdwara for the same family.

In the Diwan Hall (main hall), the ceiling is adorned with beautiful French Empire Gold Crystal Chandelier lights, making the hall look beautiful for photographs and films. For a Sikh wedding ceremony, the Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Diwan Hall can accommodate 500–600 guests. Please contact the Gurdwara Sahib for detailed information.

There is a private parking area at the Gurdwara for wedding guests, which is helpful for large weddings compared to Gurdwara Singh Sabha, which is a two-minute walk away.

The Main Hall is located on the first floor and has a straight and longer walk-way from the Diwan Hall door, perfect for the big bridal party. Natural light from the windows in Diwan Hall makes photography and videography easy.

What is the best place to do a wedding shoot after the Sikh ceremony at Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara Bradford?

The Gurdwara is just a short drive away from Lister Park if you are planning a wedding photo shoot in Bradford.

Additionally, the Gurdwara Sahib is approximately 15 minutes from Cedar Court and Hotel Bradford, making it well-suited to couples planning an Anand Karaj and reception on the same day.
