Early September 2012 saw me travelling South for Steven & Ingrid’s RAC Club Woodcote Park, Surrey wedding reception.
This was my first ever RAC Club Woodcote Park wedding and I must say that I hope I get the chance to work there again as the venue is quite simply stunning and makes for a great wedding reception venue.
The RAC was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. In 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day and the Club’s status was sealed as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.
In 1999 the Club began operating as a private members’ club, adding contemporary facilities, modernising and refurbishing for the benefit of its growing membership. The RAC Club Woodcote Park has a diverse membership drawn from all parts of the globe, a stunning clubhouse, unsurpassed accommodation, dining, sports and golfing facilities – all backed up by a very friendly and efficient staff.
I had an early start for Ingrid’s prep at Rush Hair & Benefit Cosmetics. After their church ceremony, Ingrid & Steve were driven to the Captain’s Drive, a different entrance to RAC Club Woodcote Park, where we stopped for a 5-minute portrait session before they made a grand entrance in front of guests waiting on the staircase outside the front of the clubhouse overlooking the golf course.
Entertainment for the evening was courtesy of talented trio The Wayward Sisters, whose repertoire spans jazz standards from the ’20s and classic ’40s wartime numbers, through to modern pop songs with a Wayward twist.
