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.

Yes it is an improvement I suppose in that it at least looks as if it is made out of a fabric with some natural fibre in it! But my god she is badly dressed but then again, so is her brother.

She was lovely when she came on here. Iirc, someone claimed to have known Giles in his uni days and was really vile about him. Victoria handled her with grace & wit. She went up in my estimation hugely after posting on here. She also realised the addictiveness of MN and I think forbade herself from posting her again, lest she get sucked in.

I think she looks lovely. And it's so nice to see a sleb bride who isn't stick thin, orange and with a huge pair of boobs struggling to be contained by a couple of threads of fabric.

<realises I am getting old>

I like the happiness radiating from the photos. I bet dinner at their house (or would they have supper?) would be great fun.

But why is Claudia so orange/jaundicey looking?

Why, Claudia , why???

<Claudia fan>

I think she looks lovely and natural and happy.
I think he could do with a good scrubbing and a shave, but he looks happy too.

No wonder she slags off MN if half of you are going to bitch about her dress. I think there should be an amnesty on wedding dress bitching, and we should collectively decide not to mar celebrities' big days with negative comments (unless we collectively agree that they are nasty horrid people).
Poor old Dermot's wife got slagged off too recently. There's no need. I mean it. [hard stare]

She looks gorgeous, glowing and happy, and I think they make a perfect couple. You lot are big old meanies.

Amnesty on wedding dress bitching?

Crazy talk. She's a tough lady, she can take it. Plus it's been pretty feeble bitching!

MardyBra Mon 19-Nov-12 00:22:43

We could make an honourable exception for Katie Price or any Big Fat Gypsy Weddings squoosh.
I'm a tough bird too, but I would have been upset if MN had a thread about my big fat 90s meringue wedding dress.

squoosh Mon 19-Nov-12 00:24:08

Wait 20 years and your 90's meringue will be the height of chic again!

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Mon 19-Nov-12 00:33:03

bollocks. that was a TERRIBLE dress that dermot's wife was wearing. really, if you've got all that money...

squoosh Mon 19-Nov-12 00:36:01

Mrs Dermot's dress was awful. Although as a couple, the seem lovely.

I don't really get the Wedding Dress Amnesty thing.

CelineMcBean Mon 19-Nov-12 00:41:27

Aw they are both so happy! Not hugely enamoured with the dress - love the top but from waist down not so much. I think her hair colour looks great and make up is flawless and she has v v v white teeth. He could have has a shave and brushed his hair but I don't really care. He loved her, persued her, pined quietly, then persued her again and they fell in love. Reminds me of dh it's the only time he's been right and I've been wrong I hope they are very happy together smile

Ms Winkleman's streaky fake tan and umpalumpa face is too much though and I am a fan of hers normally. The shot of her with her hand outstretched shows a palm of a completely different hue to her arm. Shame as otherwise she looks fab.

CelineMcBean Mon 19-Nov-12 00:44:49

confused no wedding dress bitching??!! Nooooooooo! Bitching about things people can't help = not on. Bitching about things people have chosen = fair game

squoosh Mon 19-Nov-12 00:54:18

That must be David Mitchell's brother behind him in the specs. He has the same, ummmm, 'academic' look.

FellatioNelson Mon 19-Nov-12 03:48:56

I think she looks beautiful, and her hair, make-up and veil are lovely BUT the dress is a bit meh.

It's too bulky - all those folds make her look big, and she isn't. She still looks lovely though. Happy brides always do.

Chubfuddler Mon 19-Nov-12 08:46:25

Next fame whore to get married gets both barrels I promise.

MrsCampbellBlack Mon 19-Nov-12 09:53:38

I see where you're coming from Mardy but Dermot's wife dress - god it was truly awful.

dexter73 Mon 19-Nov-12 10:02:32

Is Mrs Dermots dress that bad? It's not what I would choose but it's not that bad is it?

FellatioNelson Mon 19-Nov-12 10:05:47

well i haven't looked at any photos of it in a while but it is etched on my memory as a bit of a fright, yes. AS I remember it, she was wearing two tops, one over the other. Either one would have been fine but together they were tragic.

FellatioNelson Mon 19-Nov-12 10:06:16

ooh. You linked. Hang on....

FellatioNelson Mon 19-Nov-12 10:10:05

Yup, I was right the first time. She should have lost the lace around the neck and lost those godawful chunky straps, and just had lace sleeves stitched under the arm to the crumb catcher bodice. Fine.

Or, she should have dispensed with the crumbcatcher thing, and the godawful straps and just had a plain fitted bodice, with the lace sleeves and high neck under it. It was all a bit much. And it had godawful straps.

FellatioNelson Mon 19-Nov-12 10:11:30

I feel mean now. blush But she was beautiful, in spite of everything.

FunnysInLaJardin Mon 19-Nov-12 10:19:15

fab couple. David needs to lose the beard though. Apart from that I'm happy. Plus I love that the brides occupation is professional poker player. I mean how cool is that

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Mon 19-Nov-12 10:41:31

Christ no to an amnesty on wedding day bitching. MN is not that important, it's not as if they will know that a bunch of women are making bosom-hoisting comments about lace sleeves or whatever.

I remember rinders when VC was on MN and some moron was being ghastly about Giles and his wife. Really unnecessary personal bitching of a vile nature. Made MN look like a bunch of arseholes <ahem>

I have put a couple of pictures of my meringue wedding dress on my profile - remember it was 1995!
