The World-famous Royal Ascot Racing Club - otherwise known as Ascot Racecourse - needs no introduction as a centre of style and sophistication. But what you may not know is that it is also an excellent wedding venue and almost unique in the South of England as it can accept up to around 1,000 guests. You don't have to have that many guests of course but its nice to have the flexibility!
Its easy for your guests to travel to being close to the M4 M3 and M25 motorways and there is more than enough car parking space available for wedding days.
The new grandstand or stadium in the first photograph below really is a sight to behold. Peter shot this photo from the actual racetrack early in the morning before anyone arrived at the venue. Inside the grandstand its almost like a vast state of the art spaceship!

Just time for a quick joke with a guest before the real action starts:
The Registrars who conduct wedding ceremonies at Ascot Racecourse are from the local Windsor and Maidenhead Register Office and are extremely easy-going. So it is straightforward to shoot a good selection of photos together with a complete video of the ceremony. Here we see the best man giving the wedding rings to our couple:
