In choosing Busbridge Lakes for your ceremony and wedding reception, you have all the benefits of our “Covid-19 secure” status with the added flexibility and safety of an outdoor marquee venue.
To start our discussions off, we have some great virtual viewing videos and initially offer a personal virtual viewing via Zoom.
Available mid. April – mid. October
Busbridge Lakes is a truly unique and exclusive family run marquee venue in the Surrey Hills, set in the grounds of a 2A Heritage garden with 3 lakes and home to one of the largest collections of water birds in the country, all hidden in its own private valley just 40 miles from central London.
You can picture your wedding marquee in the stunning location of the Canal Lake venue on the main lawn overlooking the 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. All sounds pretty idyllic right?
As your guests marvel at the views, 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 the C18 Hermit’s cave, the Doric Temple and the rustic stone bridge spanning the lake.
The family understand each wedding is different, with couples wanting to use their experiences, vision and individuality to create a unique celebration. They offer the flexibility of an open canvas venue with the added support of the family, the on-site team and have a variety of carefully vetted wedding suppliers for you to choose from – all in a non-rushed environment.
Busbridge Lakes only holds a few weddings receptions each year to ensure your day is not one of many. The venue is available between mid. April – mid. October.
