Thank you for your enquiry to have your event at McCarthy Lake House

I will call you in the next day or so and discuss your needs further.

I look forward to working with you to create a fantastic event for you and your friends.

Below is a few things for you to think about prior to our chat together. You can source and supply all your own things or I can happily recommend local suppliers that have worked with previously.  Remember , this is your wedding to do your way. I am just here to support however I can to help you have an amazing event.
