About Busbridge Lakes

Hambledon Road, Godalming
Surrey, GU8 4AY

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.

We only hold a few weddings receptions each year to ensure your day is not one of many. Our venue is available to hire from mid. April to the end of October only. For over 200 guests we can offer a combined venue option - please enquire.

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!

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!

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

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.

..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.
