Rockingham Couple Replace Wedding Rings for Holden Jackets

13 May 2014, 7:00am

Karl Andrews and Leteesha Faulkner held their marriage ceremony last Sunday on the tarmac of the Kwinana Motorplex.

The wedding was unconventional to say the least. Leteesha's father walked the bride down the isle while puffing on a Winnie blue and giving his daughter a slap on the ass.

Karl also sought to break boundaries by sipping on a can of Jim Beam at the alter. Each of his groomsmen where dressed in Holden Racing Team polo shirts and had matching cans of Beam.

The weddings most surreal moment came when the bloke marrying them (Karl's shift manager on Mondee's) invited the couple to exchange their wedding rings. A guest at the wedding told The Bell Tower Times that Karl interupted and barked:
"No. NO. We ain't some suit wearing poofters mate, no rings for us, as a sign of our love, me and me lovely missus have decided to exchange Holden Racing Team jackets and let me tell you son, I didn't take me last one off for 290 consecutive weeks, so this one will be on for life".
 After the jackets were exchanged, some guy called Baz, fired up his Monaro and dropped the mother of all burnouts, at one point losing control and almost colliding with the bridal party. 

By all accounts the wedding was a success and the party kicked on the at the Swinging Pig in Rockingham, where Karl and Leteesha consummated their love on the pool table in front of their adoring friends. 

What a touching day.
