A Sparkly Rockabilly Campsite Romance

August 12, 2010

Ooh what a lovely sparkly rockabilly wedding! Lucia & Pete got married at Arundel Town Hall, West Sussex which was followed by an outdoorsy reception at the bride’s sisters camp site – Billycan Camping, Arundel – which specialises in bringing back traditional camping, with bell tents, safari lounge tents and Teepees! “We wanted to create a family orientated wedding” Lucia told me. It was held in my hometown, my Mum did our photos, my Dad made the rings, my Mother in law made the cake and the whole thing was held at my sisters campsite. Fun, laughter and a relaxed environment was important to us. We’d been to so many weddings where we felt on edge (due to not knowing everyone) and we didn’t want that from ours. It was a buffet lunch that was solely Vegetarian and the tables were decorated with gold sweetie bags with fake tattoos beside them- these were red hearts with a scroll across- reading “Pete & Lucia” something that went down amazingly well with the children.”

Lucia wore a stunning dress from Rock n Roll Bride favourite, Whirlingturban which she teamed with some amazing  Christian Louboutin’s and a stunning vintage sparkly jacket that belonged to her sister. The bridesmaids wore dresses from Get Cutie who specialise in pin up girl patterned dresses!

“The reason why I think that our wedding was Rock n Roll is because we dedicated a long time to making sure the day really showed off who we are as a couple, and as friends” the couple concluded. “Our family isn’t very keen on tattoos, so this was a real chance for us to show them that they are a part of us, and we were proud of them…but my main objective was for everyone to have fun, no forced activities, but a relaxed environment for all the family.”

Thanks to Lucia & Pete for sharing this wonderful wedding with us today
