History of Oaklands

When the owners of Oaklands, Mike and Linda, decided to get married in 2010, they wanted something different for their big day. On a trip to the Yorkshire Show, they saw giant Tipis used as venue space and fell in love with them. So much so, they hired the tipis for their own wedding in 2011! Amazed by how beautiful the space and setting was, guests encouraged them to set up their own venture. Thoroughly convinced, in 2012 the couple began turning Oaklands into a wedding venue and finally launched the site in 2015. To date, they have held over one hundred weddings on site.

Now, the tipis have been replaced with a Grand Lodge as couples mentioned the bar, located in a smaller lodge on the lake, was their favourite place. The Grand Lodge means weddings can now be hosted year-round and more guests can be invited too and as an Oklands wedding photographer, it is one of my favourite places.

Weddings at Oaklands

Set within 200 acres of woodland, beside a picturesque lake, Oaklands wedding venue nestles itself amongst the heart of the rural East Yorkshire countryside. Located near Brandesburton, it is a truly magical, unforgettable, and unique venue in which to exchange your vows and celebrate your love together.

The Grand Lodge is the crowning jewel of Oaklands. Seating up to 200 guests for your meal, it’s aesthetically pleasing design uses locally sourced materials to ensure the building effortlessly blends into its natural surroundings. Inside, the décor seamlessly mixes rustic charm radiating from the timber cladding with luxury elements such as jewel colours and stylish lighting. Included in the price is the use of an outdoor patio area and furniture/ heaters as well as the use of an in-house projector and screen to play your wedding slideshow. 

Alternatively, The Pavilion on-site is a spectacular covered outdoor ceremony area that enjoys stunning views over the lake, offering a peaceful setting to share your vows. Away from The Grand Lodge, you can also find the Lakeside Lodge, an indoor ceremony area that is also filled with character and rustic charm. A large open fireplace sits central and wooden beams overhead give a cabin-in-the-woods aura made elegant by the lavish hanging lights above. 

To help the day run smoothly, within the package you purchase you gain support from Oaklands dedicated wedding team who can offer practical advice throughout. The venue also provides a Master of Ceremonies to conduct proceedings and use of an entertainments manager to conduct your daytime music as well as a fully stocked bar and bar staff. Note, while there are not any caterers on-site, staff at Oaklands can help you find a caterer suited to your needs and allow them to access a fully stocked catering kitchen within the venue.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the amount you should spend on a wedding photographer will vary depending on your couple’s specific needs and preferences. However, a reasonable estimate for wedding photography costs in the UK would range from £1,000 to £2,500. This amount may change depending on the location, type of photography ( posed or candid ), and number of photos that are taken. It is also important to remember that these are just estimates – costs may actually be higher or lower depending on your specific needs and circumstances. It is a good idea to chat with a wedding photographer before making any final decisions about budgeting. Let me know if you have any questions.


Seven hours of coverage is generally not enough to document a full wedding day in North Yorkshire. Most wedding ceremonies are 1 pm or 2 pm which means the wedding photographer would start bridal preparations around 11am. If the cutting of the cake and first dance is 8pm, then you would need 10 hours of coverage for the day.


Hiring a wedding photographer is a worthwhile investment with 87% of UK couples choosing to hire a professional. It’s an ideal way to preserve memories of one of the most important days of their lives. You’ll get high-quality images that capture a wedding day’s special moments, emotions, and details. Take a look at my wedding portfolio to see images from previous weddings.


I know that you’re going to be really eager to get your photos back. Not to worry, I expedite the process to get the photos to you. It takes a little bit of time to sort through the photos and get rid of pictures where people are blinking that you don’t want to see. Additionally, I fully edit each picture to ensure my style remains consistent. With that being said, you can expect to see your photos within 3 to 4 weeks of your wedding but it can usually be faster than that.

Remember, you can’t rush perfection!
