If you are a regular to the Blog you will know that I am a BIG fan of Pinterest! with my regular Saturday feature Boho Pins I bring you my favourite boards on pinterest in a handy mood board, You can find me on Pinterest here pinterest.com/bohoweddings but why am I telling you all this on a Thursday?

Well today is the official UK launch of the Pinterest Pin It Forward Campaign and I’m delighted that the guys at Pinterest asked me to get involved!

‘For the next 30 days, 300 bloggers from the UK will be sharing boards and stories about what inspires them and how Pinterest is a part of their personal passions. We’ve rounded up all sorts of bloggers from home cooks, to automotive enthusiasts, globe-trotting writers and more.

Pin It Forward UK 2013

I’m sure that most of you know what Pinterest is by now, but if not then you need it in your life, honestly I don’t know what I did without it. One of my wedding regrets is that Pinterest wasn’t around when I was planning my wedding!

Boho Pinterest

It’s basically an on-line scrap-book where you can collect numerous ideas and keep them on handy boards, collecting and organizing the things you love. You can “pin” things from around the internet onto boards you create, on any topic you’d like. This can be anything from home decoration to recipes  to fashion, and if you are planning a wedding it is an invaluable planning tool. I find it so useful when working with a bride and groom to be able to quickly nip onto their pinterest boards and have a quick look at their ideas, this make it so much easier when relaying ideas back to florists , cake makers, getting an idea of their general style!

Personally I also find it great for putting together mood boards and ideas for inspiration  Again when I first start working with a client and we start talking about colours and themes  pinterest is invaluable as we can share ideas and look for inspiration.

I think my own personal pinterest board is my Boho Board

Most of my boards are wedding related but if you scroll to the bottom of my 121 different boards (yes it is addictive!)  you will be able to find out a little bit more about me with boards such as Stuff I want, my own Photography, and People, animals and Stuff I Love.

But my two favorite non wedding related boards have to be my two favorite subjects Cats and Food

So if you’re not already on pinterest you really need to be! But be warned it can be addictive  you will fill many hours pinning lots of pretty stuff to you own boards. And don’t forget the new secret boards which means you can pin stuff that no one else can see. Perfect for all that secret wedding planning! You can follow many of your favorite bloggers, magazine, celebs and see what they are pinning!

    I would encourage everyone to follow these boards on Pinterest. As a photographer Pinterest is becoming such a useful tool and a great way to get inside the mind of the Brides that I photograph and understand the kind of wedding they’re trying to create.

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for participating in Pin it Forward UK. It was a pleasure working with you. Currently searching for bridesmaid hair ideas for a wedding I am going to be in, so I’ve pinned some ideas from your “Hair Ideas” board onto mine – thank you :)

    I love your “Cats” board too as a I am also a lover of cats
