Today's guest blog comes from Samsa May's, everything tips and tricks about prop hire. Sam and I worked on a styled shoot together which has now been shared on Bloved so feel free to check that out - https://blovedblog.com/weddings/modern-rustic-barn-wedding-ideas-nikkis-moments/
Why do I do what I do...
As a small business we always make a concious effort in saving the planet, striving to use all of our wood and reduce waste. I am a very creative person and always come up with new ideas where I then enjoy making and painting, seeing the vision truly come to life. My heart melts every-time I see the bride and grooms faces when they see their hand made creation and fall in love with it.
I love making all of our creations but the one that I most enjoy is our reclaimed wood clock. This ia a very popular creation of ours, because it's so unique. We make all our creations by hand with the mindset of using it again after your best day.
The clock is a great feature item on your wall at home, surrounded by your beautiful wedding day pictures. Every bride is unique, before christmas our lovely bride asked us to make it into her signing board, so they could treasure all the well wishes from their friends and family.
Choosing a theme- my love is for the rustic look. Different textures depths and can be dressed in any colour, my personal favorite is rustic with geometric with a touch of pink and sage green. Here at Samsa May’s we are live for the rustic couples as our main material used is wood.
- Always measure the area first when hiring large props, looks can be very deceiving when you guess.
- On your big day just take a moment, not long 5 mins perhaps and just look around and take in all the people there for you and your other half. The day can pass so quickly, take a mental picture of your moment for you to reflect on.
