Megan & Tom’s Cotswold Wedding at Merriscourt


Megan & Tom!  Married at the beautiful Merriscourt in the Cotswolds.  If you are a guest from the wedding and would like to see the full gallery of photos, go to and get in touch if you need the password. 

I had already spent the most wonderful evening with them both in Box Hill, Surrey for their engagement shoot where we laughed and chatted and laughed a lot more.   I felt like I had known them both for years and was so excited about photographing their wedding.  

Tom and the boys stayed in The Wychwood Inn in Shipton Under Wychwood the night before and Megan stayed with her bridesmaids at Merriscourt.  My second shooter Brad Payne went to the boys and I went to the girls.  With 7 bridemaids getting ready, as you would imagine, there was a lot going on!  Pizzas were in the oven whilst makeup, flowers, gifts, jewellery & clothes decorated the rooms!  The mood was relaxed & happy.  Megan arrived down the isle on time (I believe) looking so beautiful whilst Tom waited emotionally, being supported by his groomsmen.  The love you could see between the two of them throughout the service bought tears to their eyes and everyone else’s!  

Being a typical spring day, the rain came down hard as soon as they were married, so the beginning of the drinks reception was in the gallery, but then the sun shone for the rest of the day.  The speeches were wonderful and hilarious, meaningful with the right balance of funny, at points I found it hard to photograph as I was laughing so much.  Towards the end of the day when the sun was low, we snuck out for the photos of the two of them whilst their guests partied hard on the dance floor.  This is always such a special time, as it’s time of the day where they get to be together without so much going on around them (ignore the two photographers with large cameras pointing at them).  

After the dancing was well underway, Brad and I left feeling very pleased with how the day had gone.

I hope you enjoy browsing through this selection of their photographs.  It was such a pleasure to be a part of Megan and Tom’s wedding, I hope to be able to photograph more for them in the years to come.
