A Mothers Day Present

Cranberries Hideaway Wedding

In August last year, I was fortunate to be asked to photograph the wedding of Lucy and Rich at Cranberries Hideaway.  It is such as wonderful location with fabulous views.

With accommodation on site and everyone in one place this was a going to be a fabulous day with no rushing between Venus.  Nevertheless, to ensure I captured [...]

Mount Somerset Hotel Wedding

by Taunton 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 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  [...]

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 [...]

Family Portraits – Capturing Memories

by Taunton portrait photographer, Mark Cox Photography My Family Portraits are always fun sessions.    I always try to remember a favourite saying of mine when I have a family portrait session:  "A Smile happens in a flash...It's memory lasts a lifetime." My aim on any family portrait session is to capture everyone having fun and therefore provide my client with a collection of beautiful images they can treasure forever.  Each session is different and for the majority of my family portrait sessions there are no planned formal shots or set poses. First of all, sessions normally take place at a [...]

Family Holiday Portraits

by Somerset portrait photographer, Mark Cox Photography With so many things to do in the area, it is easy to see why people come to Somerset for their family holiday.  There are several beaches near by, the West Somerset Railway and of course Exmoor to explore. Furthermore there are lots of wonderful places to stay.  This family stayed in the very beautiful Old Rectory, part of the Sleeps12 group of properties in Somerset.  This luxury sleeps up to 18 people with glorious views of the sea on the North Somerset Coast.  Fortunately we were blessed with some lovely weather.  As [...]

Childhood Themed Portrait Shoot
