Today we are very excited as we were asked to be part of the Pin it Forward campaign run by Pinterest to join pinning communities together and get people sharing more.

Pin It Forward UK 2013

We love Pinterest as you can discover all sorts of inspiration in one place and then organise all your pins quickly and easily into mood boards and categories to suit you.

We use it all the time to create wedding style boards and pin all our favourite ideas from around wedding world including stuff like decorating a marquee and table names to celebrity wedding styles.

Best of all there’s an option for secret boards so you can share with a select few keeping your pins undercover if needs be until well after your wedding day.

Whether you’re pinning for your wedding, your business or just for fun Pinterest is fast becoming the must go to website for inspiration and all things creative.

As part of the launch I’m sharing with you our English Country Wedding board. The board is full of gorgeous inspiration if you’re planning a wedding in Kent, or actually any countryside location! Here’s just a little taster.

A massive thanks to the team at Pinterest for asking us to be involved and we hope the campaign is a huge success. Make sure you share your pinboards with us below as we’d love to follow you too!

Happy Pinning

If you’re planning an outdoor wedding chances are you’ll be needing a marquee or tent and you’re in luck as our very lovely neighbours (well two little roads away) at LPM Bohemia can help you with all of them!

From Vintage and Traditional Canvas Pole TentsIndian Marquees, to more contemporary Party Marquees, as well as Yurts and the eye-popping Grand Pavilion, they’ve got it covered for you.

Alongside hiring your tent the really friendly team will also help with furniture, dance floors, lighting and decor. There’s simply a huge range to choose from and lots of the tents can be joined together so you can get the perfect look alongside the functionality you need. Plus you could opt for letting your guests stay over for a bit of late night partying in Bell Tents and Yurts.

For some of you though decorating a tent or marquee can feel like a daunting prospect. It’s a huge blank canvas to work with, but with some of the new interior linings available it will make it that little bit easier and you’ll have a stunning and unique place for your wedding day.

Happy Planning!

Our fantastic find today is a caterer who has a unique country creative style  that is perfect for a rustic Kent wedding.

Owner of Home Gurr’own and Chef Nicci Gurr has been a chef for over 20 years. Starting out at Albert Roux of Roux Fine Dining in London she worked in many restaurants in and around London before heading out to sea and working on private yachts. Eventually settling down in Cranbrook and starting Home Gurr’own with her husband Julian.

When it comes to cooking they love finding the freshest finest local produce and using ingredients grown on their smallholding as well as fish from Hastings and freshly ground wholemeal flour from a local windmill.  Nicci says “our Cranbrook kitchen is my pride and joy. We’re a creative farm caterer who uses lots of fresh garnishes, chalk boards, picnic hampers and anything else that creates a farm, country feel. Our kitchen is perfect for keeping all our produce fresh and still leaves enough room for my home made Elderflower Champagne!”

Sounds perfect to us! For more info about menus and prices take a look at their website.
