Queen's College; Taunton's best kept Wedding Venue secret!

Friday 25th May 2012 - Recce for Alona & Mark's Wedding

For all of the weddings we're booked for we try to recce the venues if we're not already familiar with them. Sometimes this isn't possible due to our hectic photography schedules or the distance we travel to shoot some weddings but being in Taunton meant we could take the opportunity to scout this gorgeous venue.

Queen's College is a co-educational independent school located in Taunton, the county town of Somerset, England.  This stunning Grade II listed building, built by Giles and Gane in 1874, is a symmetrical Tudor Gothic design set in approximately 35 acres of grounds. It is now available for weddings and we're very excited to shoot only their 3rd wedding there!

We arranged to meet up with Lottie Francis, the event's manager for Queen's, who showed Emily & I around. As a former Pupil of Queen's I was familiar with the layout and the rooms that are designated for weddings, which obviously has it's benefits although coming back for business for the first time since leaving felt a bit strange. Being an old building we thought it essential for us to see the venue from a photography point of view - to check lighting, angles and to plan the shoot.

The school is beautiful, and that's not just me being bias.  If you're getting married in Somerset and like the look of Queen's College then get in touch with them....and then us to shoot your wedding!
