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.
