Winter Wedding Photography

by Somerset wedding photographer, Mark Cox Photography. A winter wedding is always magical.  Churches are decorated so beautifully with Christmas trees, lots of light, tinsel and candles.  As a result the decorations help make this a fabulous time of year to get married.  The images below are from a renewal wedding vows service that I photographed around this time last year. It took place at the beautiful Church of the Holy Cross, Hillfarance near Oake. It was a very personal occasion with only me, the vicar and the happy couple.  Everything was organised by the beautiful bride and it was [...]

Mount Somerset Hotel Wedding Photography

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography The Mount Somerset Hotel was the venue for my final wedding of 2015.  This wedding meant a lot to me as the couple were family friends.  I have known Sam and Jim for a few years now and when the doorbell rang and both of them were stood there smiling I knew something was up!    There was no "hello" it was a just "will you photograph our wedding for us...??"   I said yes without even know the date / time or location!  I knew it would be a fabulous occasion with lots of [...]

Baby Photography – Phoebe

by Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love being asked to photograph a new baby.  A new addition to the family brings lots of fun and joy to all and this one was no exception.  This session took place some time ago and this little lady must be nearly 8 months old now.  However, looking through my work from last year for a "Best of" blog post I knew I had to share.  My baby photography normally takes place at home where the family and new baby feel comfortable. There are no time pressures on the shoot as we just [...]

A Summer Wedding with a Scottish Naval Theme….

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. I love a wedding!  Every wedding is a beautiful occasion with so many wonderful things; the bride, the groom, the dress, the rings, the flowers, the church, the venue, the food and of course the party!  All these variables go to make it a wonderful day.  When you add a Scottish theme with lots of Naval personnel you know you're going to get a stunner.  Furthermore, having the wedding reception and party in your own back garden makes it a real family affair. Neil and Kim had all of this and more.  The [...]

Haselbury Mill Wedding Photography

by Taunton wedding photographer, Mark Cox Photography In May this year I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Tash and George at Haselbury Mill nr. Crewekerne.  A few months before I had photographed the happy couple for their pre-wedding shoot so I knew we were going to have a fun day!  The wedding day started with bridal prep and champagne at home followed by a quick trip to Haselbury Mill for the service and party!  This was the first time I had photographed at the venue but was in love with the location as soon as I arrived.  [...]

Family Portraits – Ruby Anniversary Present

by Portrait Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. Family Portraits are fun! Being able to capture the fun of a special family occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or just a family get together is a privilege.   The location does not have to be a studio.  In fact some of the best portraits are taken at a favourite location such as a park or on a walk or even at the beach!  As people feel comfortable in familiar surroundings they tend to relax and enjoy the experience of a family portrait shoot.  I recently met up with 3 families who had [...]

Pre-Wedding Shoot – Tash and George

by Taunton Wedding Photographer, Mark Cox Photography. Last Saturday I met with Tash and George for their pre-wedding shoot.  Not every photographer offers a pre-wedding or engagement shoot but I believe it has lots of benefits.  Firstly, not everyone enjoys being in front of a camera and so this session helps me get to know the couple better and for them to become a little more comfortable with having their picture taken. Secondly, although not in this case, if we are lucky enough to meet at the venue we can also run through possible locations we could use on the [...]
