While the topic of arranged marriages among South Asians has generated some interest among researchers (Ballard, 1977-8; Brah, 1977-8), is often taken up by the media, and remains of tremendous importance to the South Asian communities in Britain themselves, nothing has, to my knowledge, so far been written about the effects of the British legal system and its requirements on South Asian customs and practices with particular reference to the solemnisation of Hindu marriages.
