Lakeside Manor Wedding Menus & Information


The decision for any couple to get married reflects a major commitment and is a life changing event for any couple. The Team at “The Lakehouse Manor” recognise this and we strive to reflect this in the quality of our service and food. Our relaxed and very affordable country wedding venue represents a strongly held belief that we can provide a wonderful venue with all the elements you want without ripping you off. We provide good old fashioned value for money without compromising.

Each couple and each occasion is different and as such we like to sit down and discuss your individual choices with you in detail. You have no doubt been dreaming and planning this special day for a long time. You may have some ideas and images in your head that we need to share. The more information you give us upfront the better we can help you plan, to ensure the most fantastic celebration with your family and friends.

The food packages below are a guide to help you, but they are only a guide, so please feel free to suggest and discuss any ideas that you may have. You may select any package you wish or a combination thereof. When choosing combinations there may be extra fees involved so please discuss this with your co-ordinator. We have many years of experience so we have a good feel as to what works best, so please ask. Please note that there are minimum guest numbers that apply for some packages, usually this is 45 guests as understandably, this reflects on staff and delivery costs especially for decorations, labour, planning and set-up.

We will happily cater for smaller functions but may need to charge a levy for weekends (not weekdays). We choose to only work with best Wedding suppliers in Queensland. They provide great value and use only the finest, freshest ingredients possible, so please ask for our guidance. Should you wish to provide your own food this option is available – please discuss this with us. We also work with some great local suppliers.
