to say it was perfect would be an understatement!
Venue Service

By Matt, on 14 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

Busbridge Lakes is a truly magnificent place. Me and my partner were lucky enough to have the opportunity to use the venue for our weekend and to say it was perfect would be an understatement! The whole day, the setting, the wildlife and the fantastic support by Bill meant we couldn't ask for anything more. Fully recommended and we will be back to visit for many years to come.

what a lovely, in fact beautiful setting

Many of our guests remarked on what a lovely, in fact beautiful setting it was to celebrate my daughters wedding; it was wonderful. My family all support efforts to conserve both our nature and wild life and recognise its importance for many reasons. I've been a volunteer at WWT Slimbridge for 7 years so have some insight to the work that plays such a vital role in our future. Keep up your good work. Your staff on the day did a super job. They were friendly and helpful and did things with a smile.

We fell in love with your venue
Venue Service

By Irina & Malcolm, on 20 May 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2018

We fell in love with your venue from the moment we arrived to see it. It is glorious and lived up to all our expectations despite the weather. Of course, the venue was only part of the day, and all the hard work from your team supporting us as we set up, and working in the background throughout our day, was fantastic. Thank you for organising the cherry blossom and bluebells especially for Irina. Finally please thank the peacocks for cheering us on and appropriate parts the ceremony.

On the day... it looked even more stunning
Venue Service

By Jade and Guy, on 19 May 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

We recently got married and had our wedding reception at Busbridge Lakes, We couldn't of been happier with the preparation and effort put in from Bill and his team at busbridge. The grounds are beautiful and on the day of the wedding it looked even more stunning, every one of our guests couldn't of said more positive things about the venue and were taken back with the birds, flowers and beautiful lakes. A truly unique venue with a blank canvas so your able to put your own mark on your wedding day which is so special and was important to us. Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality. Jade and Guy Holloway. 21.04.18

I couldnt fault Bushbridge Lake for a wedding set
Venue Service

By Dawnanneloopy via Tripadvisor, on 05 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2016

We attended a Wedding here, absolutely delightful place, beautiful Gardens, lots of Birds, lovely atmosphere. Lovely setting for a Marque Wedding with beautiful views of the ground especially lit up at night around the lake. Lovely food and entertainment. Sadly for us it's only opens to visitors on Bank Holidays, we would have loved to have gone there for a day visit. The owners Son Bill was very nice, enquiring if every body had, had a good time. I couldn't fault Bushbridge Lake for a wedding setting. It really was a day to remember.

Thank you is not enough!

By Bella & Mike, on 05 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

Busbridge is not just beautiful, it is magical. Thank you Bill and all your incredibly talented team for looking after us so well on our Wedding day - not just that day, but in the run up to and after the day itself - your attentiveness and care was over and beyond. We really cannot thank you enough for allowing us to create some really precious memories at the Lakes. Thank you is not enough!

Venue Service

By Emily & Henry, on 08 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2016

A wonderful day! Thank you for the use of your beautiful venue for our wedding. Everyone was commenting on the 'wow factor' of the place & how beautiful the lakes, ceremony lawn and birds were! Thanks also for all you and Nicky did on the day to keep things running smoothly. It was the perfect place and we really did have a perfect day

Venue Service

By Olivia & Bryn, on 08 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2016

We had an amazing time and we cannot thank you enough for helping to make the wedding as magical as it was. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful family home and for being on top of all the little details. Everyone commented on the beauty of the garden and lake. You were so kind and helpful throughout the process of wedding planning and we're ever so grateful. Busbridge will forever hold a special place in our hearts and we cannot wait to come back and visit in the future on your open days.

As for Busbridge, what a venue.
Venue Service

By Mari & Sean, on 08 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Aug 2015

..We had the most amazing day. The best! Perfectly chilled and to our taste. We really want to hammer home our huge appreciation and to say again thanks so so much for doing all you did. You (Blank Canvas) were both just fantastic during the run up and more crucially on the day itself. I have in fact already mentioned you guys to a few people and will continue to do so. As for Busbridge, what a venue. As I said in my speech "who needs grand, grade listed manor house such as Clandon".

Busbridge was the perfect setting for our wedding
Venue Service

By Claire & Chris, on 08 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Jul 2015

Busbridge Lakes was the perfect setting for our wedding. The coach house, stunning lakes and wildlife provided the most spectacular backdrop, which not even the wet weather could spoil. I would thoroughly recommend this venue for anyone considering a marquee wedding, as there are endless photo opportunities and extensive grounds for guests to enjoy at their leisure. Thank you to Bill (Busbridge Lakes) and Lyn and Heidi from Blank Canvas, in helping us to pull off the most magical day.
