I'm famous!

Well... not really. But my picture is on fliers and posters all around Neath (a little town in Wales), so I do feel a little famous. This was the internet version which can be found here.

A few years ago my mum went to a printing shop to get a picture of me (as a toddler) blown up. The people in the shop thought that the photo was so good that they asked if they could put a copy of it in the window.  I would pass that shop on the bus and, even though no-one else knew that it was me, I still felt a bit special: honoured than someone would want a photo of me (although, it's more of a testimony to my mum's photography, as it was an excellent photo), do you know what I mean?

  1. Very exciting!!! They probably do a lot of weddings, so, you should feel special that a photo of YOU was chosen to be plastered everywhere.....If anything, it's a great memento, right?

  3. Hi there! hope you are having a good day. The Bridal Evening went well last night, I was nervous in the day in case no one came but it was really busy and hope to organise another one in June. I had loads of positive comments about the posters, designed by my designer hubby and you are right, people who know you didn't realise at first it was you!
    I now have a blog at www.afirmationphotography.co.uk/blog and will be all about weddings. Questions,comments etc, and I will be posting tips and useful reconmendations. There are no comments there yet as I only started it at half eight this morning.

  4. It sounds like you've already had more than 15 minutes of fame. Time to share with others.

  5. Neath, no way! I am literally from 'down the road'. So which poster girl is you? Is it the one we see here (the blonde) or the couple next to the car (the brunette)?
