Kate Robinson Pinterest

To be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest! I absolutely love finding endless inspiration on any topic under the sun, and I love the ability to organise your pins into different boards. It’s an amazing tool, when used correctly.

Afterwards, I overheard a few guests saying they wondered why they were asked not to take photographs.
