    so happy we chose the AGK for our wedding


    1) Sonia, the event coordinator at the AGK, was experienced, dedicated, trustworthy, and warm/personable. She was prompt and responsive in communicating, flexible in accommodating our changing needs/numbers, and there were never any surprises / she was clear and straightforward about everything. Her guidance and recommendations were invaluable throughout the planning process, and we always felt like she had our back.

    We happened to visit the AGK a few weeks before our wedding (unannounced) when they were setting up for another wedding, and it was a marvel/delight to see first hand how dedicated and sharp Sonia was in overseeing the set up and ensuring the event went smoothly. When we had last minute questions/concerns the weekend before our wedding, Sonia replied immediately (after she had been up until 2am working another wedding, ensuring that wedding went off without a hitch). Her dedication, attention to detail, professionalism, and personability is exactly what you want when planning your big day, and we felt entirely confident leaving the coordination of our special day in her capable hands. indeed, our wedding wound up being the magical, smoothly administered, impressive event we hoped it would. From the pre-tour, to the ceremony, to cocktails, to catering, to transport, to cleanup and billing... it was all as smooth and effortless as could be, and it was a joy for all in attendance. The AGK delivered on everything and more, and I really can't speak highly enough of Sonia and all the staff at the AGK.

    2) the space itself... is elegant, clean, peaceful, memorable.

    The grounds outside provide a spectacular, bright, clean, modern landscape for photography. The architecture of the building, the reflecting pools, and the stone paths and lavender, with the ismaili center in the background... is a beautiful backdrop, not only for photos, but also for the reception, which can be appreciated from inside the Diwan restaurant, where we held our reception.

    The Diwan room was an excellent place to have the reception. The bar at the center made for a great flow of guests and a meeting point during the cocktail hour. The glass panels that look out into the courtyard serve as a dramatic backdrop for the head table. The tables and chairs that are already in the room - are elegant and refined enough, such that you would not even need to cover them. And then of course, the authentic panels lining the ceiling and back end of the room, provide the room with elegant, harmonious decor that is unique and fits the space perfectly.

    The Bellerive Room: this is where we held our ceremony. At first, I thought it would be too small and cozy for the ceremony, however, it really did make for an intimate ceremony. The acoustics for our harpist were wonderful, and our officiant did not need a microphone, and every word could be easily heard and understood. The intimacy of the room really did add so much to the ceremony, and you could feel the joy & love & emotion of all the guests.

    3) We did not go on the tour ourselves (since we were getting married), but we were told the Tour was fantastic. Interesting, informative, and impressive, and not too long so as to be boring or draining! The collection itself is not so extensive as to be overwhelming, and we are very happy we opted to include the tour in our program, as it helped our guests to experience the museum as more than just a venue for our wedding.

    4) The Food/Catering! as much as people loved the tour, we got even more positive feedback from the guests about how Good the food was! i think the hors d'oeuvres were the most impressive, and even my friends who are chefs/foodies were gushing with praise. prior to the event, McEwan offered a full tasting, and their chefs took our notes and feedbacks from the tasting, and incorporated our feedback into the final product. The servers were all wonderful: well-trained, presentable, efficient, and personable.

    Shall I go on? I could go on. Suffice it to say - we could not be happier with our decision to hold our ceremony and reception here at the Aga Khan Museum.

    Our Wedding Dinner at the AKM

    The Aga Khan Museum (AKM) is an excellent venue to host your engagement/wedding. We chose to host our marquee event at the AKM as it provided a wide array of settings such as the traditional mogul inspired gardens nestled amongst breathtaking reflective illuminated pools, a stunning indoor glass enclosed courtyard and an auditorium lounge that boasts an architecturally stunning staircase.
    Sonia Borkar, the museum’s Event’s Manager was extremely accommodating and provided us with creative options to meet our needs. We hosted two events, one in the auditorium who's stunning staircase rendered an excellent back drop for our grand entrance and the other at the Diwan restaurant located in the AKM. The Diwan, run by Chef Mark McEwan and overseen by Chef Shen offered an excellent and diverse range of menu options along with professional staff and service. Overall, the Aga Khan Museum far exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend considering it for a wedding/event venue.

    Best wedding venue

    Aga Khan Museum was very accommodating and flexible, even though we booked the venue a few months before our wedding ceremony (almost last minute). Whenever me or my wife wants to make changes, Aga Khan Museum would constantly communicate with us and immediately make any adjustments.

    At the time of our wedding, the Aga Khan Museum staffs were extremely professional and made our wedding ceremony lively. They have a beautiful garden where you can take pictures after the wedding ceremony (a perfect two in one deal).

    We are glad we chose Aga Khan Museum for our wedding ceremony and we would highly recommend Aga Khan Museum to our friends.

    Jon and Aimee's Wedding

    We got married at the Aga Khan Museum in August 2018. Our event coordinator was Sonia and she guided us throughout the entire planning process. We liked the Aga Khan museum because of the proximity to where we live and it was also a convenient and central location for most of our guests. Our ceremony was in the Atrium Courtyard and the open roof setting was very unique as it provided beautiful natural lighting on a during the afternoon. Cocktail hour was held on the spacious and airy Diwan Restaurant patio where the bartenders served our custom cocktails along with a delicious medley of hors d'oeuvres. A formal dinner reception was held in the Atrium with a few rooms and sections transformed into various spaces such as a photobooth, video guestbook, and children's area. The after dinner portion was held in the Courtyard and we and our guests loved dancing under the stars on a gorgeous summer night. It was truly a night to remember thanks to the aesthetics and elegance at the Aga Khan Museum.
