Wellington Racing Club is set on the idyllic Trentham Racecourse offering hectares of peaceful surrounds and magnificent buildings to hold your perfect day.

Being able to cater for up to 400 guests with an array of gorgeous settings to choose from, our team is proud to be able to tailor make your day to your perfect style.

Our Executive Chef offers fresh and seasonal menus or our Event Manager is happy to facilitate your caterer of choice.

Here to oversee all the little details, your dream is our priority and our team looks forward to providing your absolute day of a lifetime.


Outside ceremonies make the most of the all-encompassing beauty, whether it be under the pergola of the manicured Ascot Lawn, the canopy of the enchanted English Oaks or in the majesty of the historic grandstand, to name but a few.

The timeless class and wooden elegance of a racecourse room offers just as much magic and creates an immense atmosphere should the weather decide to call you indoors.   



The vast backdrops, quaint corners and stately grandeur offer no end for the photographer's imagination to capture your day.

Whether you wish to take advantage of the historic charm or prefer modern glamour the flexibility of the venue gives you a wide choice to complete your wedding vision.

Our Derby room provides an ornate detailed, wood panelled ballroom adorned with vintage chandeliers.

Dine amongst the tree tops in the Carbine Room, located on the third floor with timber panelling and surrounded by Oak trees, the spectacular view of the surrounding trees only adds to your in room theming.

There are rooms with views, rooms with indoor/outdoor flow and those with the warmth for intimate numbers.

Our sweeping lawns also provide a stunning backdrop for the precedence of a silk-lined marquee or the wanderlust of a festooned lit star marquee.
