The Mount Somerset Hotel, located between the Quantock and Blackdown Hills just outside of Taunton, is probably one of my favourite venues for wedding photography.  There are the beautful rooms with high ceilings, a spiral staircase and some very grand décor. It is certainly a fabulous venue for a country wedding.  Not to mention some great views of Somerset!  In August 2017, I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of James and Alicia at the Mount Somerset Hotel.  Following a service at the very small but gorgeous church at Greinton it was  back to the Mount Somerset Hotel for the wedding reception.

On most of my weddings I shoot with a second photographer to ensure I can provide coverage of the whole day.  Amongst other sections of the wedding day this would include being able to cover both bride and groom preparation. However, whilst we were able to cover this it was not the main reason why I was grateful for a second photographer on the day.  You see, we knew the bride and groom were travelling back to the Mount Somerset in a helicopter and we wanted to capture both take off and landing.  So, whilst my second stayed behind to capture shots of the happy couple getting into the helicopter, I made the mad dash back to the Mount Somerset to capture their arrival. Fortunately I made it in time!

Following the group shots, speeches, cake cutting and first dance, James and Alicia had one more surprised for their guests.  A fabulous firework display provided by Roger from Heritage Fireworks. I hope you enjoy the images…
