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.

LOL Dilys, love the AIBU. Don't forget 'have to pretend show is filmed on Sundays so must remember not to make any reference to having come straight from wedding. Or should bride and groom perform first dance at Wembley and get marks out of ten from Len Goodman et al?'

Hope they had a fantastic day.

Who are this couple?

Dress is ok. At least there is no mammoth boobage on show.

DontmindifIdo Sun 18-Nov-12 11:35:22

oh they both look so happy and I think she looks gorgeous! (He does have the look of a man who can't quite believe how lucky he's been to get this woman to marry him, this is a look I think all men should have on their wedding day)

Gregssausageroll - he's from peepshow, the Mitchell and Webb show, he's the 10 O'Clock show's host, he's regular on QI and Mock the week, and writes for the Observer. She's famously won a million playing poker (is a bit of an expert on gambling), hosts "only connect" on BBC4, hosted a programme on language and the dictionary on BBC2 for a while, also regularly on QI, writes for the Guardian and has officially been "the thinking man's crumpet" for a number of years.

I think she looks lovely. How I wish I was at that wedding...

clarabellabunting Sun 18-Nov-12 13:40:27

I like the style of the dress but there is something odd about the way Victoria looks in it...

She is normally very slim but either the dress is unflattering and makes her look thick around the middle or she is pregnant?

She is 39 so if she and DM are intending to have kids, I suppose they'd be likely to be starting ASAP.

All of those folds of material across the front might be hiding a tiny baby bump?

CaroleService Sun 18-Nov-12 13:54:01

I suspect you're right Clara. Happy news all round.

curlypoo Sun 18-Nov-12 14:03:39

I thought she might be a bit pregnant too but more than anything I was absolutely blown away by how completely happy and smiley she looks. She looks like herself and not some primped z-lister pouting away like a gurning fish.

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Sun 18-Nov-12 14:05:07

oh now that would make sense of the incredibly unflattering waistline. she slagged us off once on HIGNFY or one of those types of shows, but then came on here and apologised and said she was just envious, truth be told. so i hope she is up the duff.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 18-Nov-12 16:52:17

Hilarious thread - red flags indeed.

I thinks she looks incredibly happy and I love them both.

polyhymnia Sun 18-Nov-12 17:04:49

Agree with that last sentence. Dress not my taste but who cares. Lovely to see a couple who are clearly on same intellectual wavelength.

squoosh Sun 18-Nov-12 17:05:30

He looks as though he can't quite believe his luck.

squoosh Sun 18-Nov-12 17:08:29

I've just realised, yes I'm clearly a bit slow, that they're called David and Victoria. Wonder if they get lots of Beckham gags from their pals.

difficultpickle Sun 18-Nov-12 17:13:23

I nearly started a thread yesterday and I don't usually care about other peoples' wedding dresses. It is hideous. She is slim but it looks as if she's 6 months pregnant. Maybe she is?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 18-Nov-12 17:17:22

Awful dress but she looks beautiful still. Love the colour of the BM dresses.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 18-Nov-12 17:22:02

Yes the BM dresses are really gorgeous. I don't know marrying David and having Claudia as a best mate [not envious at all]

edam Sun 18-Nov-12 17:26:06

aw, I'm just really happy for them, they seem like lovely people. Dress isn't very flattering unless she's p/g, which would be great news after what she said on MN.

squoosh Sun 18-Nov-12 17:30:16

What did she say on MN?

msrisotto Sun 18-Nov-12 18:33:41

She's my celeb twin :D
Now, not just for that reason, I think she looks so lovely, so happy, so smiley, I love weddings. He could have shaved though! Looked a bit like a yeti.

Badvocsanta Sun 18-Nov-12 18:46:26

She looks lovely.
Shame he didn't shave, mind

MarshaBrady Sun 18-Nov-12 18:52:59

She looks lovely. Would have just changed the very bottom bit of the dress.

Pancakeflipper Sun 18-Nov-12 19:25:08

I wish there was a transcript of the speeches. Bet they were brill.
Though lt she looked perfectly bridal.

edam Sun 18-Nov-12 19:27:09

she apologised for being mean about MN on telly and said it was because she was a bit jealous of mummies, IIRC.

mignonette Sun 18-Nov-12 23:37:36

She is always appallingly dressed on 'Connect' in clothes that show every lump and bump. Why her wedding dress would look any different I do not know.....

But her brother Giles Coren has a tendency to run to fat also (he is looking very portly and porky lately) so her genes are clearly not her friend........

squoosh Sun 18-Nov-12 23:39:29

Giles Coren is my pet hate.

DilysPrice Sun 18-Nov-12 23:46:20

Oh but mignonette do you not remember how she used to dress in season 1 of Only Connect? The C&A trouser suits! My eyes shock. She had an entire wardrobe of the bastards, and every single one of them unflattering as hell. The new fitted frock look may not be perfect but it's infinitely better.
