The First Event WLBSE ever organised where people got together was called Photo Bomb The King, a photo shoot at the Norman Tower.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet a king? Well, wonder no more! The We Love Bury St Edmunds meetup event was a unique opportunity for locals and visitors alike to get up close and personal with the historic St Edmundsbury Cathedral and its surroundings. And what better way to make the event even more memorable than by photo bombing the king? That’s right, participants had the chance to pose for pictures with the statue of King Edmund.
This event was a huge success and left everyone with a smile on their face. So, if you want to add a little fun to your day and get some great photos while you’re at it, join the next We Love Bury St Edmunds meetup and see what surprises are in store for you!
It all happened one cold January Sunday, members of the group, collected together close by the Norman Tower, to have a group photo taken with The King.
What is Photo Bombing?
Photo bombing is the act of jumping into someone else’s photo in a humorous or unexpected way. It’s a fun way to add some personality and excitement to your pictures. The We Love Bury St Edmunds meetup event took photo bombing to a whole new level by inviting participants to take pictures with the statue of King Edward VI. Participants were encouraged to strike a silly pose or make a funny face to add some humor to their photos. This added a whole new dimension of fun to the event and made for some truly memorable photos.
