Hi guys, I hope that you’re all having a great day!
So while you’re here you either:
a) waited to find out what event I went to because you read the London: Sightseeing Gallery and Surprises post.
b) you just came across this post and want to check it out.
A big welcome to you all! Please follow my blog and stick around for the future posts 🙂
So on the 5th of September 2016 I was mega lucky to end up in the VIP section of the Bridget Jones’s Baby World Premiere in London. It was held in the Odeon Cinema near Covent Gardens and by far makes it the second most exciting event that I have attended in my life! (The first one will always be the Queen’s Garden Party).
That day casually started off with sightseeing and finished off meeting so many celebrities. To find out who I met/saw carry on reading!
As I arrived at the event I was let through to the VIP section, right beside the pink carpet, which gave me an amazing opportunity to take close up photos and sometimes even speak to one or two amazing people & share the experience with you guys!
Lets start off by listing celebrities that I have come close to:
Renée Zellweger, Patrick Dempsey, Colin Firth, Celia Imrie, Ellie Goulding, Jade Jones, Zara Holland, Sharon Maguire, Sarah Solemani, Emre Turkmen (Years & Years), Marvin Humes, Rochelle Humes, Sally Phillips, Helen Fielding, Gemma Jones, Neil Pearson and one of my favourite Youtubers EVER Louise Pentland!
Check out the photos, they always speak more than words:
It was my first premiere and everything seemed so exciting. At the start there was a fun host who got the audience involved and warmed up before all the celebrities arrived. There was a DJ, lots of press and all together a great atmosphere.
Few hours into the event the cinema began to play snippets of the movie and showed live interviews. I was over the moon with how the night had gone so far, then one of the security guys came over and told me that I can personally meet Renée Zellweger and have a chat with her. I freaked out! To make it even better, that same security man saw that I forgot a notepad to get an autograph on, so he gave me one of the massive cardboard posters to keep. #foreverthankful
As I was put on a spot to speak to Renée, nothing amusing came out of me – just the usual “omg I love you and the movie, you look perfect in your outfit today…” that she probably hears a million times during a World Premiere. Good one Karolina, she was meant to remember you from then on. But she was the most down to earth celebrity! So kind, nice and even told me that I looked beautiful. Of course she also signed that massive piece of cardboard I had.
On one side I was so chuffed that I now had a signed piece of merchandise, but on the other I now had to travel with it from London all the way back home to Scotland.
To this day I have no idea what to do with it? It’s so massive! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Overall, it was such a great experience and if I ever get another opportunity to attend a premiere then I’ll be there within a heart beat. All I have to do now is actually find time to go to the cinema and watch Bridget Jones’s Baby properly!
Have you ever gone to a movie premiere? Have you already watched this movie or not yet?
