Wedding BubblesMay 19, 2010
What do you feel when you look at this?
Happiness? Deep joy? A strong urge to reach out and pinch your screen to feel the bubble yield from under your fingers and hear that satisfying pop? None of the above, because
you’re a miserable bastard it’s just not your thing? Well, one bride from Lincolnshire took it a step further.
Rachel Robinson, a 30-year-old teacher wore a wedding dress containing 13ft of bubble wrap. The dress was made from recycled materials by parents and pupils for a fashion show a month ago. The bubble wrap was sewn to an inner cloth lining and the dress was finished with white foam packaging and Haribo sweets. A few days after the show, while on holiday in Canada, Duncan Turner popped the question. Rachel knew just the dress to wear for the event.
Those bubbles were very useful as she was able to pop them to calm her nerves. Not to be outdone, her husband broke with tradition and took his wife’s name.
Our British eccentricity is alive and well, thank goodness.
