How to choose a wedding venue

How to choose a wedding venue

Woohoo, you’re finally engaged! There are so many unexpected stresses involved in regular event planning, let alone planning an event like your wedding. You might find you need someone experienced to help with the many decisions to be made. Fear not: we’ll take you on a step-by-step guide through the aesthetics and decision making to craft your perfect day.

Choose a location

Knowing the general area you are aiming for will help you identify your eventual perfect location. Most people will need to take into consideration travel distances for family and friends as well as transportation and accommodation options for guests. Next, find an area within that location. Lake Macquarie Yacht Club is the ideal waterfront location with its uninterrupted, picturesque views of Lake Macquarie, perfect for dockside photos 😉

Seek advice

Wedding advice could come from a wedding planner, newlyweds who wish they’d done things differently (or exactly the same), or from liaising with experienced wedding and event venues themselves. An experienced venue like Lake Macquarie Yacht Club offers different wedding packages, function rooms and personal event specialists to help take the stress out of the process, and lead you toward the aisle on your dream day.


There can be the fear that idyllic venues can set limitations to the kind of weddings they are willing to book, yet – with our three function rooms, able to cater for 30 to 160 guests, in both formal seated and cocktail reception layouts, no wedding or budget is too small!

Guest accommodation

Will guests need a place to stay nearby? Experienced in corporate functions and situated in such a beautiful destination on Belmont Bay, Lake Macquarie Yacht Club can assist with nearby hotel information and will be able to guide you through the room-stay organisation.

Stay true to yourself

Don’t have the wedding other people expect of you. It’s your day and can be organised with as much or as little outsider involvement as you decide. Having a Lake Macquarie Yacht Club wedding will help to turn your wedding dreams into realities, and make your day as special as you know it can be.
