Oaklands Wedding Photographer – Aimee and Liam

July 30, 2020

We loved photographing this wonderful wedding in Yorkshire. Oaklands Grand Lodge is a stunning wedding venue near Driffield and Bridlington. Set within two hundred acres of woodland it really is the perfect place for a day of celebration. We’re delighted to be an Oaklands Wedding Photographer. Below you’ll find a selection of our favourite images from Aimee and Liam’s wedding. What a perfect summer day it was!

A stunning wedding venue in the heart of Yorkshire

Oaklands Grand Lodge is a wedding venue like no other. Within acres and acres of woodland, it really is a beautifully scenic setting for a wedding. As a photographer there really is no better place to work.

Such a lovely bride and groom

Aimee and Liam were such a lovely couple to work with. They never stopped smiling all day long. We are so pleased they picked us to photograph their wedding day! It was such a wonderful occasion from start to finish. The wedding ceremony at Oaklands is always great to capture. Out on the lake, there is a great atmosphere. Also, being outdoors only adds to the relaxed feel of the day.

Garden games and drinks in the sun

Wedding guests enjoyed playing Connect Four and Jenga on the Oaklands Lawns. These garden games are always so much fun to photograph! As a wedding photographer, you are always looking for those little touches that make a wedding unique or different. Or, just things that the couple have thought of that help their guests enjoy the day. And that was certainly true here!

Every wedding guest having the very best day!

This summer wedding was one of those days when we looked through our camera lens and just saw smile after smile. The beautiful Yorkshire weather certainly helped! However, it was more than that. Aimee and Liam planned such a relaxed day and all their guests enjoyed it so much. We loved photographing every second of this Oaklands wedding. You can see the happiness in people’s faces in every photograph we took.

A first dance beneath the stars

One of the things that makes Oaklands a unique Yorkshire wedding venue is that the first dance always takes place outside. In a pretty woodland area, surrounded by fairy lights and under the stars. What could be more romantic? It is always such a special moment. Also, it is kept a secret from wedding guests! So there is always an audible gasp when the curtain is drawn back to the reveal the first dance. It’s a really lovely moment.

Hi M and G wedding photography – just to I’ve been browsing round your site for a while, as well as checking out your competition. I have to say, i’m pretty convinced that your style is actually rather unique and you manage to capture some moments that truly wonderful. You actually seem to be able to take some incredibly well composed shots with much less intrusion and effort, in comparison to some of the more lifeless and rigid set up shots of some of the other folks. What I am trying to say, and not very well, for I am no expert (I just like what i see) – is that your photographs capture an essence that others are clearly missing.I think these blogs are really helpful in helping understand how you go about this work and it sounds just like the kind of thing that we are after. Hopefully be in touch soon to talk more about what we have in mind for our Yorkshire wedding. Many thanks. Jason.

Wow, thanks so much for that! I think that is definitely the longest comment we’ve ever received! Means a lot, thank you. Patrick

Great shots here. This looks like so much fun. Cheers.

Thanks so much! Patrick – M and G Wedding Photography
