She looks radiant but I'm not a huge fan of the fishtail shape, plus it makes her look slightier bulkier than she is. They do make a good couple though.

Also, I have to say it . . . . . . . I love Claudia Winkelman, but why does she always wear weird coloured makeup?? I just want to wash her orange face.

Nah. I love weddings. Even Northern weddings are often fine once you've had a few drinks and the shrugs come off

She looks lovely, as does he.

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Sun 18-Nov-12 01:37:17

it's a shocking dress, but her hair and makeup is nice.

HellothisisJoanie Sun 18-Nov-12 06:26:48

Shocking dress

Chubfuddler Sun 18-Nov-12 06:38:23

I like the top half, the fishtail at the bottom is awful not so much.

I love the bms dresses.

They look very happy which is all that matters. I am trying not to slag off wedding dresses anymore unless it's a fame whore as it's mean. I'm not sure my wedding photos would stand up to MN scrutiny.

I think she looks beautiful. She has real sex appeal though, so i think she could get away with quite a lot.

Think she must hate her bridesmaids though - those blue dresses are awful. Very sack like and normally Claudia Winkleman looks beautiful.

SneezySnatcher Sun 18-Nov-12 08:33:35

It should have been meeeeeeeeee sad

Sorry, DH.

I love her and (obvs) I love him. I think they look so happy and, although it's not the most flattering dress, VC looks beautiful. I love the BM dresses.

Maybe a bit creeped out by the article where is says how obsessed DM was with VC before they got together.

I think claudia is orange because of the strictly at wembley. I like Victoria, nice to see an unashamedly clever woman in the papers.

rockinastocking Sun 18-Nov-12 08:39:19

Not like me too be so bitchy about a bride, but I think she looks a bit old for that frock.

Overdone hair and makeup too.

I'm sure she speaks very highly of me, however....

morethanalltheteainchina Sun 18-Nov-12 08:41:56

I think it's a gorgeous dress, I especially like the lace on her arms. Her hair and makeup is lovely too and she looks all happy and glow-y.

Howeverrrrr, I do think that style of dress isn't hugely flattering on anyone who isn't tall and quite lean looking. I mean, she looks gorgeous, but I reckon that underneath, she's a lot smaller than she looks in the photos.

HellothisisJoanie Sun 18-Nov-12 08:49:48

The top is ok and she does look really beautiful. But WHAT THE FUCK with the bottom?!

Fuckitthatlldo Sun 18-Nov-12 09:19:08

Never mind the dress, it's all the frighteningly obsessive unrequited lurve confessions from the groom that have me worried.

I suppose she thinks it's all terribly romantic. But all I see is one huge red flag.

That is a man who imagines his partner to be responsible for all his feelings.

TheFallenMadonna Sun 18-Nov-12 09:22:38

You got all that from the Daily Mail?

twojumpingbeans Sun 18-Nov-12 09:26:22

Give him a break, red flags?!? You are aware that this article was in the mail aren't you? I think they both look lovely and very happy. So there wink

noddyholder Sun 18-Nov-12 09:28:19

I love this dress first sleb dress in ages I think I would look ok in. her natural hair etc is lovely and she looks happy not stressed

noddyholder Sun 18-Nov-12 09:30:41

My dp loves her ad swoons at that show se does on bbc4

JudeFawley Sun 18-Nov-12 09:34:28

Very unflattering dress shape, but she still manages to look lovely.

She always squeezes herself into some shiny atrocity on Only Connect; I suspect clothes are not her thing.

I wish David Mitchell had got rid of the beard for his wedding.

I bet it was a fabulous do.

VolumeOfACone Sun 18-Nov-12 09:35:09

I don't like that dress at all. To me it looks old fashioned and dull. But I feel the same about most wedding dresses! And I hate lace, even though I know it is quite 'in'.

HellothisisJoanie Sun 18-Nov-12 09:38:06

It was. A mate on twitter went. Speeches amazing.

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Sun 18-Nov-12 09:43:18

I love a good sleb wedding dress slag off as much as the next mumsnetter, but I think she looks absolutely lovely. The dress is really pretty. I like the fact that she looks like herself, hasn't chosen to wear her hair up in some tortured style. I like the fishtail bit of the dress as well.

David Mitchell, on the other hand, looks like he needs a good scrub, shave and hairbrush. Scruffy article.

They do look happy though, don't they.

ArthurandGeorge Sun 18-Nov-12 09:44:13

I don't like the dress, just not very flattering and not very interesting. For once I much prefer the groom's outfit!

slartybartfast Sun 18-Nov-12 09:47:37

oh giles coren is her brother? i liked him on that programme with Sue thingy.

they look a happy couple, and I like david mitchell.

Fuckitthatlldo Sun 18-Nov-12 10:04:55

Oh dear. Perhaps five years spent working for Women's Aid has made me a tad over sensitive grin

DilysPrice Sun 18-Nov-12 10:09:43

I think she's lovely, and have been saying that those two should get married for years so feel vindicated.

Can only imagine the wedding speeches - Robert Webb, David Mitchell and Victoria Coren - arguably the best speech line up of any wedding ever - if only her father had been there too sad.

And what a weird day for Claudia. I can imagine the AIBU/S&B posts. "I have been asked to be bridesmaid at my best friend's wedding, but I have to compere a complicated TV show in front of a huge live audience in the evening. Can I get squiffy? Will I be able to do my fake tan in the taxi or should I do it before the wedding? Have been asked to say a few words on behalf of the bridesmaids but slightly nervous as groom and best man professional comedians. Don't want to drip feed, so have 3 small children with me and my DSis who will also be there, is a princess"
