Royal Automobile Club Wedding
The RAC Club in London is a venue filled with history and those walls have surely heard some stories! It’s grand, impressive and a little intimidating but full of character. And very British!
Alice & Greg’s wedding managed to perfectly blend the uniqueness of this very formal location with a relaxed and fun wedding day surrounded by friends and family who had travelled from all over the planet.
This was actually the first time that a wedding ceremony had been held at the RAC Club! They often have receptions there but never an actual ceremony. Until now!
The evening celebrations were absolutely next level, with a phenomenal band and a surprise duet from Alice & Greg, singing Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.
Good times all round! Big thanks to my mate Martin Hobby for shooting this one with me. And huge congrats to Alice & Greg.

The Royal Automobile Club is one of the world’s foremost private members’ clubs, offering first-class facilities across two distinctly different clubhouses, built on the foundation of being the United Kingdom’s oldest motoring organisation.
The Pall Mall clubhouse, set in the heart of the St James’s area of London, provides a welcoming sanctuary from the bustle of the capital city. With a fine choice of restaurants and bars, a unique range of accommodation, private dining and sporting facilities, as well one of the finest swimming pools in London, there is something for everyone.
The Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms with the primary purpose of promoting the motor car and its place in society. The Club introduced the 1000 Mile Trial in 1900 and, following the success of this, the Tourist Trophy wmotorsportsd by the Club in 1905, which remains the oldest continuous competitive motor sports event. In 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club our royal title, which we hold to this day, sealing the Club’s status as Britain’s longest-standing and most influential motoring organisation.
The Club promoted the first pre-war British Grand Prix at Brooklands in 1926. After the war, it was staged at Silverstone in 1948. The Club continued to campaign for the rights of the motorist, including introducing the first driving licences.
