long has the bureau been established and how do I know I am joining a
The bureau has been
established since 1972. As the first & largest Asian marriage bureau in
Europe, we can confidently state that we have a larger clientele than
other similar agencies. Our extensive advertising and long history confirm
that we are not a quick money making venture that will disappear in a
few days. We are also a founder member of the Association
of British Introduction Agencies (Established 1981), which has strict
guideline for reputable agencies, which we do adhere to.
How do I become a member?
You are required to
complete our confidential registration form (which can be done on-line
too), and submit the appropriate registration fee. Once accepted as member,
you will receive an acknowledgement from us.
How long is my membership valid for?
The period of membership
is 12 months from date of acceptance for the Standard Service, Special
Personal Service and the Platinum Service. In the unlikely event that
we are unable to provide you with at least the minimum guaranteed number
of introductions (6) we will extend the period of membership accordingly.
Occasionally, we may provide introductions after the 12 month period where
memberships are pending or if we have had an extended holiday period.
What other charges are there?
The only other charge
is the marriage settlement fee, payable 14 days after religious or registered
marriage or cohabiting (whichever occurs first).
How many introductions will I receive?
We guarantee a minimum
of six introductions throughout the year, but will endeavour to provide
as many as necessary through out the year where possible without any upper
limit, subject to availability and requirement.
Do you have people from my religious background on your books?
We do have people of
all religious backgrounds registering with us. However, should you wish
to know more specifically about any background or particular caste perhaps,
then please feel free to contact us.
Will I be able to meet people from my area?
We can try to find suitable
partners within your area, but must stipulate that we do not base introductions
on locality. There are many other more important factors taken into consideration
first, and we look at compatibility. If area is stipulated strictly as
a requirement, we are unable to provide a minimum number of introductions
How do I get to physically meet suitable people?
The bureau will provide
suitable introductions based on the information submitted that is intimated
to you either by telephone, email or letter. The actual meeting can take
place in our office in Southall by prior arrangement (at no extra charge)
which we will arrange, or clients can contact each other to make a mutual
arrangement between themselves.
Do my parents have to be involved?
At Suman Marriage Bureau we understand the
problems that exist in many families, and try to accommodate
each and every client/family as they wish. If you are an individual
who wishes to maintain utmost confidentiality, even from family,
this is not a problem. Likewise, if you are a parent wishing
to do the same we will accommodate. These days many parents
do say it is their child's life, so let them meet first, and
if things are positive they will get involved.
Do I have a guarantee for marriage?
No. We can only guarantee
to provide you with a service. We will introduce individuals who are compatible
to you based on the information submitted. The information is used as
a guideline and it does not necessarily mean that persons will always
be exactly matched up to what you have requested, although we will endeavour
to match as closely to the requirements. Whether or not you get married
to any person introduced by the bureau is ultimately your decision
to make, hence why we cannot guarantee marriage.
Can I upgrade
Membership can be upgraded at anytime, but it
will NOT be pro-rata. You will simply pay the difference in the service
charges, and the period of membership will continue for the remaining
What if I am not happy with the service?
Suman Marriage Bureau
offers a personal service, and if you have any cause for complaint you
should contact our office immediately in the first instance, to discuss
any arising issue. We will do our utmost to rectify any situation.
secure is the website (For Special Service and Platinum Service
The whole site is hosted
through reputable servers for your complete peace of mind. In
addition, all credit card transactions are through SECPAY, a
secure payment company, to minimise any chances of outsiders
obtaining your credit card details.
if I forget my password for the online service?
Just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why are there different
levels of services in the bureau?
Different people have different needs quite simply. Some people
simply do not have the time to ask all the questions and go
into the family background details and so opt for one of the
premier services whereby we are more involved, and have to put
in additional time and effort. Others are quite happy to receive
basic details of a compatible contact and takes things from
there by themself.
How do I remove my
details from the bureau?
Just write in or email us on email@example.com
with this request. We will automatically
remove your details if you find a partner through us anyway,
otherwise we do keep your file on record after expiry of membership
in case there is any other highly suitable proposal, in which
case we may contact you again. If you should renew your membership
we will actively keep searching for you. After expiry of membership,
and providing you have received the minimum level of service
at least, we will not be actively searching for you, but only
advise you on the odd occasion where we feel there is a good
chance of a successful match. Marriage settlement fee will still
apply in such cases. top
