Bridal Babes - Sama

Every time a bride gets in contact to request a custom order for their wedding day, it makes me glow with pride. But Sama took it to the next level. Not only did she want a custom floral crown to compliment her spicy, Mediterranean colour scheme, but she also wanted to incorporate the vintage ivory wax flower garland her mother wore on her own big day. The pressure was 100% on!

While it was definitely one of the most nerve wracking custom orders I've ever undertaken - who wouldn't be scared of altering a family heirloom?! - but I was very careful to ensure we exchanged plenty of emails during the process - from inspiration to detailed progress shots - and allowed plenty of time for adjustments before the big day. However getting that final feedback from Sama when she received the crown made all the nervous butterflies worthwhile!
"Being a self-proclaimed ‘boho bride’, I knew I was going to wear a flower garland from day one. I’d originally envisioned fresh flowers, but when my Mum produced the wax flower garland she wore on her wedding day, the sentiment of wearing ‘something old’ was too hard to resist. In its original state it was a very thin, delicate crown of ivory flowers, so I enlisted the super-talented and super-lovely Sophie of Crown & Glory to give it a new lease of life. The end result was the most beautiful thing I could have ever imagined, and something I may even be able to pass on myself one day."

I'm getting teary again, so be sure to check out the rest of Sama and Paul's amazing day over at Rock My Wedding.
