The Dream Team!

From the moment we drove up to Oaklands, we knew we had to get married there! The venue sits in the most beautiful natural surroundings, but the Grand Lodge still offers that perfect balance of rustic and luxury! We 1st met with Andrea to see the venue and after her tour we secured a date straight away! She is so warm, so knowledgeable and has such passion for what her and her team are doing. We were then introduced to Vicky who coordinated our wedding day. Vicky was there every step of the way, answering any questions we had and giving any advice we needed. She made us feel at ease and took any stresses away from us. I had lots of little details I wanted to incorporate into our day and nothing was ever too much hassle for Vicky and the team! The day ran absolutely PERFECTLY, if anything did go wrong, we certainly didn’t know about it! No detail was forgotten, the whole staff were so kind and had a real laugh with us and our guests, we will never be able to say thank you enough to everyone at Oaklands, you all really do go above and beyond to make dreams come true!

Our perfect day

This was not our first wedding, so we wanted something different and less formal. The minute we visited Oaklands we felt they could deliver exactly what we wanted. They did deliver, and more - we had our perfect wedding. The staff are incredibly helpful and were supportive throughout the entire planning process. The site itself is stunning, regardless of the weather, and our guests were blown away - we made amazing memories. Walking into the Grand Lodge is an incredible experience.

I work as a Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages so am very au fait with all the lovely venues across the East Riding - for us Oaklands was the perfect choice.

Wow factor

This venue is like something of a fairytale. Vicky (wedding organiser) listened to every little detail I required for our big day, she truly went above and beyond, we truly couldn't thank her enough, she's a great asset to Oaklands.

Johnny the Dj was great, he suggested going into a lively song straight from our first dance (slow song) and it really got the party going, the guests thought it was fantastic.

Our guests were saying it was the most beautiful wedding venue they'd ever been to.

Over all we could not recommend Oaklands enough.

I have recommended Oaklands to everyone I know!

I have recommended Oaklands to everyone I know. After having a disaster with a previous venue, Oaklands came to our rescue and went above and beyond to accommodate us in July 2022. Although our booking was very last minute they made our whole experience so enjoyable. We always felt welcome and our wedding coordinator Andrea had so much time to go through everything with us, we never felt rushed unlike in other venues we had been to, Andrea was always available to answer any questions we had which always made us feel like we were in good hands. Oaklands really are a cut above the rest, their approach to wedding planning is absolutely seamless and they think of every last detail. The staff on the day made everything perfect for us and nothing was to much trouble. They really do set the bar very high when compared to other venues in the area. The lodge is set in the most beautiful grounds with a lovely seating area outside which was some of my guests favourite part of the venue. I cannot thank all of the team enough especially Andrea, you really do have something special and I cannot wait to visit again.

Mr & Mrs Oliver Sept 2023

What can we say... The Grand Lodge at Oaklands is an absolutely flawless wedding venue and our whole experience from the very first viewing to the day after the wedding could not have been any better.

A special shout out goes to Vicky, our co-ordinator, Andrea and Ian (master of ceremonies), who guided us through the whole planning process and were on hand to answer any questions we had and to provide reassurance to us both. On the day, Vicky made sure everything ran smoothly from the guests arrival, even making sure my dress didn't get wet on the footpath - we can't thank you enough!
Each and every single member of staff who played a part in our special day were fantastic, very polite and helpful and made sure both our guests and ourselves had everything that we needed.

The venue and grounds are simply stunning, the attention to detail is second to none and this speaks for itself when you visit. With the recent addition of the on site accommodation lodges, we would recommend this venue to any couple who are looking for the ultimate wedding package.

We honestly wouldn't have changed a single thing and both had the best day, better than we could have ever imagined and it wouldn't have been the same without the team at Oaklands.

Thank you all so much again, Mr & Mrs Oliver.

More than a wedding venue!

From the moment we booked Andrea was amazing. Not only is the venue stunning but whole planning process and day felt like a breeze. Andrea guided us on many aspects of the day and helped us find and plan it down to the perfect day. On the day, she made sure everything was in place for us so we could just enjoy the day as a married couple.

The most perfect venue!

Our wedding day at Oaklands was more perfect than we could have ever hoped for! Andrea was extremely helpful and honest throughout the planning process and was always available to answer our questions. The Oaklands Team made our day run so smoothly and they were very reassuring so we could just enjoy our day together with friends and family. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue, and many of our guests couldn’t believe the beauty of this hidden gem! Thank you will never be enough!
