Ascot Racecourse is home to one of the world’s most glamorous events – Royal Ascot – so where better to host an extravagant wedding? But Ascot is more than just a spot for racing, the venue has a 1,200 capacity for weddings across its spaces. The various wedding suites can be easily transformed to provide classic layouts (dinner, dinner dance and cabaret) as well as more informal solutions (buffet, lounge, sofa-style and reception), so that whatever vibe you're trying to create the team should be able to realise your dream and make it a reality. Given the generous numbers the space is able to accommodate, Ascot specialises in Asian weddings, and can host multiple days of celebrations and ceremonies depending on preference.
Equally, don’t be fazed by the big capacity number, though – smaller and more intimate receptions are also possible. Besides, it’s worth noting that there are several outdoor areas that can be used for games, activities and photography. What’s really great with Ascot is the flexible approach the events team has, which enables you to make your celebration entirely bespoke. The space is a blank canvas, so you’re free to add your personal touches and decorations to it to create something entirely unique to you and your partner.
With that being said if you would rather have a starting point to work from Ascot works very closely with a list of nominated caterers who can provide varying dining packages and prices as well as run the whole event for you. With catering at the heart of everything the team here does, you'll be taken through all the options available to you to help you decide on your perfect menu and drinks offering.
There is a distinct countryside feel to an Ascot wedding with it being set in 179 acres of beautiful parkland that adjoins Windsor Great Park. Plus, it’s only a 50-minute drive or train journey from central London and located close to the M3, M4, M40 and M25 motorways, and to London Heathrow for international visitors. Complimentary parking is included in the hire fee.
