Busbridge Lakes is a truly unique and exclusive family run marquee venue in Surrey. This reception only wedding venue, set in the grounds of a 2A Heritage garden with three lakes, and home to one of the largest collections of water birds in the country, is the perfect setting for what is sure to be the perfect day.
In a world of its own, yet only 40 miles from Central London, Busbridge Lakes offers you the best of both worlds on your wedding day.
Picture your reception marquee in the stunning location of the main lawn of this Heritage garden, overlooking the Canal Lake’s stone bridge with a vista of the Doric Temple in the distance, all to a backdrop of the old coach house with its elegant clock tower surrounded by magnificent old specimen trees.
We understand each wedding is different, with couples wanting to use their experiences, vision and individuality to create a unique celebration. Available for a select number of dates each year, Busbridge Lakes offers the flexibility of an open canvas venue with the added support of the family, on-site team, and a variety of carefully vetted wedding suppliers for you to use! By limiting the number of weddings we host each year, we can allow each wedding to unfold in a natural, relaxed environment – giving you the wedding reception you deserve.
As your guests marvel at the views, the home to one of the largest collections of water birds in the country, with cranes and peafowl gracing the lawns, imagine wandering off to take advantage of some truly unique photo locations including a C18 Hermit's cave, a Doric Temple and a rustic stone bridge spanning the lake.
Our venues are available to hire from mid. April until mid. October and we only hold a few weddings receptions each year to ensure your day is not one of many.
The primary venue for weddings is the Canal Lake venue, with marquees or tipis of your choice accommodating up to 200 guests - for larger numbers of up to 300 guests we can offer an expanded or combined venue options and other areas in the grounds as a tailored package - please enquire.

The perfect location for our dream Hindu wedding
The prospect of having to plan a traditional Hindu wedding and reception with 300+ guests was intimidating to say the least. However, Bill and his team were simply fantastic.Sent on 02/10/2020
As per Hindu tradition, asking permission from the different elements in nature when you get married is of utmost importance. From the moment we were introduced to Busbridge Lakes we knew our marriage we would be supported by the powers that be. There is a wonderful feeling of calmness, peace and tranquillity the moment you enter the grounds that fills you with immense positivity.
Busbridge lakes gave us an opportunity to open up our imaginations as it is a blank canvas. Bill was pivotal in the success of our day with his meticulous planning, management and ‘can do’ attitude. He knows the grounds like the back of his hand and this was crucial to a smooth running of the day.
Our guests, friends and family thoroughly enjoyed this auspicious occasion mainly because they were surrounded by nature. Some even went back for a visit and ALL are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was!
We feel so grateful and privileged that were able to host our special day at Busbridge Lakes. Getting married under the cedar tree will forever be etched in our hearts.
Thank you so much. Jeevan and Natasha

It is not just the literally stunning venue
We got married at Busbridge Lakes in September 2019. Weather cracking and what a day. Couldn't recommend Busbridge Lakes or Bill any more. It's not just the stunning (literally stunning) venue. It's the logistics and smooth running of the day that made it so amazing for us and our guests. Bill has years of experience, knows all the right suppliers and will help you make the right logistical decisions so the day is perfect. Feedback from all our guests has been outstanding and I wish we could do it all over again. Thanks Busbridge Lakes team. 5 star.Sent on 03/10/2019

We fell in love with it on our very first visit
We got married in September 2019 and chose Busbridge Lakes as our reception venue. We fell in love with it on our very first visit and knew straight away it was the place for our big day. The surroundings are stunning and it’s so well looked after by Bill and his team. More importantly it’s a blank canvas so we knew we’d have the flexibility to make the day into exactly what we wanted. We had the most magical day, everything we had dreamt of, but it was not just the location that made our day wonderful, it was also Bill, the owner. Bill helped with the smooth running of the day and was extremely helpful with guidance in the running up to the wedding with suppliers, recommendations etc. Bill is very knowledgeable when it comes to wedding planning and it put our minds at ease when arranging a blank canvas wedding. We wish we could do it all over again! Our guests were very complimentary of the venue and commented how amazing it was compared to other venues they had been to. We have noticed that many of our friends have now used the backdrop of the lakes as their social media photos! Huge thanks to Bill and his team for giving us the best day we could have ever imagined, making it very memorable. Busbridge Lakes will always be very special to us. We look forward to returning in years to come!Sent on 21/10/2019
