If you’re planning your wedding and looking for a wedding venue with stunning grounds in which to hold a marquee wedding reception, we’d highly recommend that you take a look at Busbridge Lakes. Busbridge Lakes is, in many ways, one of Surrey’s best kept secrets.
Unlike many other venues in the area, it’s not open on a daily basis and it may well not be on your wedding radar – so allow us to take you on a quick voyage of discovery around this Grade 2A Heritage Garden!
Located just outside Godalming, Busbridge Lakes is approximately 40 miles south of London and easily accessible via the A3 – its accessibility definitely defies its gloriously green setting! As soon as you’ve entered through the arch of the coach house, it’ll feel like you’ve stepped back several centuries in time. The estate covers some 40 acres of landscaped grounds, including a vast array of magnificent specimen trees. The three lakes are home to a plethora of water birds, an amazing collection of rare and exotic birds – it’s easy to start forming a picture of just how pretty the surroundings are! And within the grounds is a number of follies, including several caves, a grotto, stone bridges, Gothic boathouse and 18th century temple, providing some lovely backdrops for your wedding photographs.
And so to the marquee
The formal lawn that overlooks the largest lake is where your marquee will be – the view is glorious and you may be lucky enough to see cranes or peafowl gracing the lawn. We offer a range of wedding packages, so there is something suitable for every budget, and up to 200 guests can be accommodated. Keep things simple or be more extravagant with a pagoda entrance, special effect lighting and illuminated bar, there is plenty of choice and the marquee will be perfect for a drinks reception as your guests arrive, wedding breakfast and evening entertainment and dancing.
The venue is managed by Blank Canvas, one of our preferred suppliers, so the service is seamless and we’ll work together to ensure your wedding day really is everything you’ve dreamed of. Blank Canvas are wedding experts and they’ll make sure that every last detail is covered and your day runs smoothly. They might not be able to control the weather, but with an Inside Outside marquee you can be confident that, should the sun choose to not shine on your wedding day, wind and rain – even snow – won’t be an issue.
And the very best news is that the grounds are hired exclusively, which will make your wedding day so much more special – there’s no possibility of members of the public wandering into your reception, Busbridge Lakes will be yours for the day.
Next open to the public on April 14 and 16, why not enjoy an afternoon wandering around the grounds and imagine being there on your wedding day. Or call Inside Outside on 01372 459485 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of the available wedding packages and to discuss dates.
