Def Leppard guiitarist shares wedding photo

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell married his longtime girlfriend Caitlin Phaneuf on July 4 and the rocker is now sharing his first photo from the event.

“Okay, so it wasn't a conventional wedding...,” posted Campbell. “My thanks to Leppard tour manager, Malvin Mortimer for performing the ceremony in the spirit of a Welsh James Brown. Lesley Mortimer-Wallace for being the ultimate wedding planner. And of course to my beautiful girl for having me.”

Campbell shared the wedding news on July 5, telling fans, “My girl and I got married yesterday. We had a great ceremony featuring family and friends and the Leppard band and crew. So happy! Pictures to follow.”

The guitarist continues his ongoing battle with the return of his Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which requires ongoing treatements while the band are on the road.

“C-C-C-Chemo...,” posted Campbell on July 8. “Proper rock star stuff - doing hardcore drugs on a day off.”

Def Leppard recently launched a summer tour of North America with KISS that will see the pair of classic rock acts hit more than 40 cities across North America before wrapping up in Houston, Texas on August 31.
