Love stories and memories with Sas
Sas Huntwood is the owner of The Story Tellers a company that aims to capture your stories and images in a beautiful keepsake that you and your family will treasure for years to come. From commemorating special moments in a life to telling a life story these books capture, love, humour and personality. Today I sit down with Sas to talk about the value of telling stories.
Where the memories start
Sas lives in Devon and is married with a 10 year old daughter who thinks she is 21 can you relate? I have a 20 year old that thinks she doesn't live at home anymore so I have seen the progression and not a lot changes in all honesty except more grey hair!
Moving to Devon was an inspired move as just 2 months after the move we went into the first lockdown, now if you're going to be locked down anywhere?! The idea for the Story Tellers actually came a few years ago but I did with the SPWV Sas sat on the idea never quite finding the right time to start. Then we went into lock down and like me Sas decided what a great time to start a new business. Yep I think we are both crazy but some of the craziest plans end up creating the best outcomes. So, The Story Tellers was born.
So what is a story book?
It's like this is your life, Michael Aspel and his big red book but on steriods
It's the stories and the memories that sit behind the photos. Over time our mind memories fade but pictures illicit memories so what we do is capture those memories now just as they are so they can be enjoyed for generations to come. In the episode Sas shares an amazing story about the nan and grandad do take a listen as I won't do it justice in writing it here go to about the 4 min mark for the start of that story.
Story books are the capture of social history and it's so much more interesting to read it from the point of view of the person who lived it than the history book version of things. It's even more interesting when it's your family that are the hero's and heroines of the stories.
Your wedding day takes a lot of planning and preparation and you don't always see all of what goes on on the day. It's a huge life event and when we tell the story of your wedding day we are telling your love story. So we interview the couple separately find out how you met how the proposal happened etc. Then we speak after the wedding and we speak with the wedding party too. So as well as the guest book or instead of the guest book you can have well wishes and advice dotted throughout the book. We discover their stories from the day as well as the couples. We capture the honeymoon too if they have one.
