Claire and Nico’s wedding is fabulous – full of pretty homemade touches and all with the help of their wonderful family and friends. The flowers are stunning, the rustic wooden props and accessories look gorgeous!

“Our wedding was the happiest day of our lives… totally perfect! I wanted something really chilled and relaxed, nothing too styled or formal. It was very much a homemade affair styled around the English countryside, relaxed, and shabby chic!

Lots of the bits and pieces were homemade. My amazing mum made 180 metres of beautiful bunting, the cake (and not just one – there were so many practice runs that we were all sick of the sight of cake by the time the wedding arrived!), the wedding favours (lovely vanilla fudge) and far too much else to mention. I spend weeks steaming labels off jam jars and covering them in twine, making the table plans by hand and so on…

Don’t let the headline mislead you – this is the most elegant of weddings, and any Viz table names come as a complete surprise (which makes the chuckle factor greater!) Kirsty is a beautiful bride in a designer David Fielden gown, Paul her handsome groom. They celebrated at the fabulous Maunsel House (click the link for more real weddings there) in a relaxed and beautifully styled day.

I love how Paul and Kirsty didn’t work with a theme – instead, their wedding came together beautifully around their sense of style. It’s a lovely way to create a wedding and makes perfect sense to me. Images are by lovely wedding photographer Anna Taylor who you should read more about here:

How I’d love to get inside the mind of UK bridal designer David Fielden – his latest bridal catwalk to launch the 2013 sposa collection was as edgy as ever – controversial as well. But David’s bridal designs and collections make a bold statement which isn’t something we see too much of in the wedding industry. He makes me think.
wedding dress blog (9)

David says, “My collection started with a visit to a theatre to see Shakespeare’s Richard the III. I was struck by the beauty and simplicity of the clothes of the mediaeval period: they suddenly seem relevant; the stripping back and bold detail set my mind flying with ideas using my background in theatre, design and choreography. Music also plays a great emotional part in my fashion shows.

“I became fascinated by the heroism of Joan of Arc and the visual imagery from a 1920 silent film about her. She became my muse and follows on a trend of mine setting my bride in a world of conflict from a visual and design point of view.

The Elite wedding blog logo

David Fielden is a leading UK bridalwear designer, an inspiration to many, a creative force at the cutting edge of bridal fashion.

David’s catwalk shows never fail to create a buzz in the wedding industry, and his 2012 catwalk with its theme of urban decay – with the delicate subtext of love overcoming hardship – was no exception.

David Fielden: The Elite: an interview

I asked David to share a little insight into his collection, his inspiration and his designs.

David, your bridal catwalks always cause a stir: this year’s Urban Destruction theme was especially thought-provoking. Is there a philosophy behind the styling of your events?

“We live in an intransient time, with world affairs effecting our everyday decisions. So I wanted to capture that feeling and show that love will always win out.”

Your gowns have a very unique style. How is a David Fielden gown born… do you schedule time to sketch ideas, or does inspiration come when you least expect it to?
