Proud new K100D Super Owner (and another Limey!)

I had Praktica MTL50 for years, then a Pentax PZ20. My first digital was a Canon A530, but I finally splurged on the fantastic K100D Super.
Now I'm shopping for a flash since my wife's niece is crazy enough to want me to shoot her wedding and I'm here looking for lots of advice.
Oh and it looks like I'm not the only limey - I always thought Pentax were very popular in England.

I have one quick question - where do people get those fancy 'proud owner' sig graphics?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting more out of my camera and becoming a better photographer. Maybe I'll even post some shots here

[Ok, I guess I'm not that new of a K100D Super owner.. I've had it just over a year now!]

Hey! Welcome to the forums.

If I could recommend a flash to go with your K100D Super, I own the Metz 48 AF1 and it's been performing wonderfully. It's one of the cheapest that does the full tilt and twist, and it packs quite a punch.

Oh, and please do post pictures
