Nat and Emma were married at Marlyebone Town Hall with their Reception held at Dartmouth House in Mayfair in Central London. I was a little bit nervous about this one as Nat is a Director of Photography / Cameraman who has worked on some pretty major TV Shows and Productions such as the X-Factor and The Royal Weddng. He is also a very good photographer in his own right and with Emma who works as the Producer/Director on the TV show ‘Total Wipeout’ this was a couple with a real knowledge of visual media. Despite this added pressure they were so much fun to work with and their emails following the Wedding left me feeling quite overwhelmed.
Their day was filled with highlights but the open top Bus Ride accross Central London and a wander around Westminster were a really welcome change to the norm and just great fun to document.
Below are the emails that they sent me after the Wedding and some of my favourite images from their very special day.
EMAIL FROM NAT
Hi Jamie, as per your suggestion we have just sat down with a bottle of wine and played the slide show of the wedding. Wow, they are brilliant and finally Emma has shed a tear over the wedding! I tried on the day but couldn’t get that grin off her face!!!
Thank you so much, we can’t wait to pass the details on to everybody and share the photos with them.
Favourite photo’s? Too many to say but the photo’s on Westminster Bridge and the the moments you captured between Emma and her family in the morning and Emma and I are brilliant. It seems that everyday I look at other professionals images I learn a little more. Thank you.
You have captured the day perfectly for us, thank you again.
I hope the slippers and sofa are now well worn in and you feel you are starting to recover from a long summer!
Many thanks mate,
Nat and Em xx
EMAIL FROM EMMA
The photos you took are so lovely, I had a proper tear yesterday! Not even the day did that to me! They tell the story of our day brilliantly, it brings back every joyful feeling looking at them and the composition of your pictures are just great. Your eye for detail and the way you look for different ways to shoot something is such a wonderful gift and one that I envy. Thank you.
Again, thank you so very much. You are a very talented man.
Em (and mr Taylor as he is now known in our house!!!!) xxx
AND FROM EMMA AGAIN!
I know this has turned into a bit of a Jamie Bott love in but thought I should let you know that my parents came over on Tues night and watched the slideshow with the brilliantly suggested glass (make that bottles) of wine and they were beside themselves. Solid tears for two and a half hours. They are so excited by them and my mum just relived the whole day. Your storytelling is superlative and joy radiates from every image. They were so nervous about the photography not being formal but now just cannot believe how right and brilliant they are. My father thinks you are a genius and I can see how proud he is of us finding such a great photographer to document the day and going with what we knew would capture our day and more.
You have made the family so happy. Thank you. Now I get to do it all again with my sister tonight and yet another bottle of wine! Let’s see if she can beat mums record of tears actually falling by the third photo!
I will let you know when the stuff arrives in my hands.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts
Em & Nat xx
