Chris and Laura CarterWe have been absolutely thrilled with RACA right from day 1. Rebecca is extremely personable and it was a real blessing for me to have someone so efficient to take care of all the reception co-ordination. The venue itself is just breathtaking – our photos in and around the building are stunning, it was an incredible backdrop for such an important day. Our friends and family have raved about the professionalism of the staff and what a tight ship they run for their events – the food was also a real hit, people couldn’t believe how good it was, with generous portion sizes. I can’t recommend RACA and its staff highly enough, our entire day went off without a hitch and we have Rebecca to thank for overseeing everything with such precision. RACA is a very special place with great atmosphere and that “wow” factor that every bride is after for her big day.
Thank you!!! Chris and Laura Carter

Tim and I wanted to pass on our thanks for the amazing job you did for our wedding last Saturday. The room looked amazing (including the centrepieces), Gus was fantastic, we had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the food (which is a pleasant surprise when you have to feed 120 people) and the wait staff were great with drinks.
Tim also mentioned you were really helpful during the day. The bridal suite was also beautiful. The logistics of getting everything to and from the venue was made quite painless by the staff.
We would absolutely recommend the RAC for events to anyone in the future.
Kevin and LolaDear Rebecca,
We would like to thank you for all your hard work on our wedding. Everything went smoothly and the venue looked so beautiful for our special day.
You coordinated everything expertly. It really put us at ease to have someone we could trust taking care of all the details.
You we’re very helpful preparing for the day and catered to all our needs.
Thank you again so much!
Kevin and Lola
Naomi SalernoDear Rebecca,
I am just taking a moment to thank you so much for all your help for Arran & Katie’s wedding ceremony on Sunday 21/9
Your help was very professional and much appreciated.
We had many comments on how beautiful the venue was.
Thank you again, we could not have got everything together without your help.
Mick and MollyHello Roy and Rebecca,
The RACA venue is certainly a magical place with all the glamour and nostalgia that I love. All of the guests were most impressed. They all made comment on the presentation of the room which I have to say looked magnificent come 7.00PM on the Sat. night. I would like to thank you both for your involvement in the planning and fruition of this event. It must be very difficult dealing with peoples’ demands every day.
Molly and Mick
Anna and AaronThank you so much to all the RACA staff and in particular Rebecca and Katrin for an amazing night. The venue looked gorgeous, the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive making the night run smoothly. Thank you for helping us celebrate the happiest night of our lives!
Anna and Aaron
Trish and BrendanThank you so much for Saturday! Many of our family and friends have commented on how professional and friendly you and your colleagues were, how lovely the room set up was and how accommodating you all were in looking after our guests. Brendan and I couldn’t agree more. We are so grateful for your help on our wedding day.
I wanted to thank you all for a couple of other things too – firstly for making me feel like a princess from the moment I arrived! I was showered with attention, followed around having my dress taken care of and laid out beautifully, and you all made sure I was carefully hidden from the view of any guests so it was a surprise when they saw me. Thank you for the special attention paid to our junior bridesmaid when she got a bit nervous and upset before the entrance procession! Thank you also for the many other little things, for example your female colleague (whose name I am embarrassed to have forgotten) even offered to watch over the infant at our ceremony so all our guests could be in a group photo out the front.
The whole thing flew by in an instant for me so I’m sure there are many similar things I didn’t see – thank you for all of those too!!
Trish and Brendan
Therese and JoeWe celebrated our wedding reception at the RACA in October 2020 and could not have been happier with how the night went. We can highly recommend Yvonne, Shibli and the RACA team for the co-ordination of similar events. Yvonne was truly outstanding; she was efficient, diligent and meticulous in her attention to detail. Additionally, in the somewhat stressful times of COVID, she was kind, flexible and accommodating throughout the period leading up to the wedding as well as afterwards. Likewise, Shibli went to exceptional lengths to ensure that the celebration was as wonderful as it could be. He was extremely helpful throughout the process and genuinely did his best to find solutions within the COVID restrictions. Shibli’s unflappable temperament and sense of calm was greatly appreciated on the night when we ran much later than expected! Thanks to Yvonne, Shibli and the RACA team we had a wonderful wedding reception at the RACA!
Caitlin and James CrippsWedding: 17/10/2020
COVID threw a massive spanner in our 2020 wedding plans, but we were fortunate enough to have the support of the incredible team at RACA behind us. Our ceremony could not have gone better. Yvonne was efficient, proactive, fastidious, unflappable and full of creative solutions to the unique challenges of a pandemic wedding. Our guests were stunned by the location, the friendliness of the staff, and the quality of the wine and food. An incredibly smooth experience in an extremely bumpy year. A big thank you to the RACA team and one massive, special thanks to Yvonne! Best day of our lives!
Danielle and FelixWe had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Royal Automobile Club, Sydney in September 2019. From the planning stages to the execution on our big day, we were extremely pleased with the organisation, flair and knowledge of the team at the RACA, and our wedding was as perfect as we had envisioned.
Our vision was for a classic wedding resembling a bygone era, and Yvonne and the team understood this in our initial discussions. She put us in touch with recommended suppliers (such as event designers) which we combined with our own contacts, and the set packages were useful in encompassing a lot of elements (e.g. food, drinks, DJ) that would have been less convenient to source individually ourselves. The proceedings on the wedding day ran smoothly, and we felt confident everything would be looked after so we could enjoy the day (which we did!)
We still receive compliments to this day from family and friends on our wedding day and venue. We'd highly recommend the RACA for any wedding or event.
Tore and TolgaWhat a magical day.
It was such a privilege to have our wedding ceremony held in the incredible Macquarie Room at The Royal Automobile Club of Australia. All thanks to the wonderful staff of RACA, floral vendor, musician and photographer who all worked seamlessly to bring the magic of our wedding ceremony to life. The Royal Automobile Club is a stunning venue and we absolutely loved the breath-taking, heritage elements of the Macquarie Room and overall club, such a fabulous back-drop for our wedding photos. My partner and I are so grateful for the wonderful staff, especially the commitment and professionalism of Yvonne and Katrin who ensured that each aspect of our wedding ceremony was perfect, from the stunning arrangement of the Macquarie Room to the elegant and harmonious organization of our ceremony.
We are so thankful to have such splendid memories at one of Sydney’s most remarkable, heritage venues.
