Sydenham Barn Wedding – Mark Cox Photography

by Sydenham Barn Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography Sydenham Barn is a great venue for a wedding.  In May I was fortunate enough to photograph the wedding of Ryan and Melissa there.  It was a great day with so much fun.  After getting ready at the Bower Inn, the bride made the very short journey to Sydenham Barn.  This wedding was a first for the venue as we were using their newly built outdoor wedding area.  The florist had done a great job of decorating the pergola; it looked fabulous. Following a lovely cermony and signing of the register, we [...]

Family Photography on the Quantocks

Family Photography by Mark Cox Photography Family photography is one of my favourite sessions.  Less time pressured than a wedding, a family portrait session allows everyone time to enjoy the session.  Meeting a family for a family portrait shoot is always fun.  There is time to get to know the family and consequently help them to relax in front of the camera.  Sessions can take place anywhere the family wants and as a result of being of being in familiar surroundings, makes for great images.  The session below took place on the Quantocks with fabulous views of the surrounding area. [...]

Wedding Anniversary Photography

Wedding Anniversary Photography in Taunton by Taunton Photographer, Mark Cox Photography I love photographing weddings and all the joy, celebration and love of the special day.  Wedding anniversary photography is the same except it is far more relaxed and fun!  I'm not sure how they did it but the children and grandchildren managed to keep the party a secret from the happy couple.  As a result, it was a complete shock to them both when they walked in the door and lots of their close family and friend were there to party with them. The party was held at the [...]

Family Photography

Family Photography by Family Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography A family portrait session is one of my favourite sessions. Rather than having a set timeline like a wedding, family portrait sessions are very relaxed with no set plan.  In the majority of the family sessions, we agree to meet at a set location and just go for a walk.  Along the way, I will spot various locations and take some photographs but there is nothing set in stone.  I try to make the session as relaxed as possible. As a result, I find I am able to get many more [...]

Underwater Photography – Blackbrook Leisure Centre

by Taunton Photographer, Mark Cox Photography Underwater photography is quickly becoming addictive for me!  At present it may only be at Blackbrook Leisure Centre and Spa but consequently it's got me hooked!  Most of all being a diver I'm looking forward to using the new skills and new equipment when I go on holiday. Several months ago I was approached by the local Partnership Manager for GLL about a new possible project.   The project involves underwater photography for some of the swimming lessons at the local GLL sites.  After much discussion I was onboard with the project.  First of [...]

Cranberries Hideaway Wedding Photographer

Mount Somerset Hotel Weddings

by Somerset Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography 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 decor. 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  [...]

Dunster Castle – Christmas Wedding

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography I love a good wedding and a Christmas wedding is very special.  My last wedding of 2017 was at the very beautiful  Dunster Castle in Somerset.  Before the wedding the bride and groom got ready at Emmetts Grange holiday cottages based in the heart of Exmoor.  At 1250 feet above sea level the property offers spectacular views of Exmoor. Unfortunately on the day the weather was not so wonderful. For most of the time we could only see fog!  When hair and make up had finished and everyone was ready, it is was [...]

A Taunton Wedding with a bicycle made for two!

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography Summer has passed but I wanted to share some images from a local Taunton wedding that I photographed at the start of my summer wedding season.  The wedding of Hannah and Andrew took place at All Saints Church, Trull with the reception just across the road in the Church Community Centre. I only managed to meet Andrew once before the wedding as he was living in Singapore until a few days before the big day.  The wedding day was a beautiful day that started for Hannah at HAIR@22 for hair and make-up.  Then [...]
