For over 30 years, David Fielden has been providing the luxury bridal market with an internationally renowned lineup of designer bridal and evening wear. Along with his new contemporary flagship store in the swanky London neighborhood of Chelsea, the designer’s fashions can also be found in a selection of prestigious shops worldwide.
David’s talents extend well beyond the fashion realm. As a trained theatre designer, dancer, and choreographer, he has won several international awards – a background, perhaps, that sets him apart as a designer when it comes to creativity and theatrical flair. This segued into a blooming fashion career when he inherited a wonderful vintage collection and began incorporating antique lace into his bridal designs, which were originally sold from his Kings Road shop.
A bridal collection by David Fielden always includes contemporary and exciting designs that offer brides-to-be a unique and memorable gown, but with the classic elegance and quintessential sophistication of British style. David’s gowns have been editorialized in countless magazines such as UK Brides, Italian Vogue Sposa, and Elle Japan. Today, he’s still the designer of choice for an international roster of celebrities like Julia Roberts, Kate Moss, Dame Helen Mirren, and Cindy Lauper.
“Wedding planning was actually easier than I thought it would be,” says Emily. “I had the best wedding planner, which made everything seamless. I enjoyed the process, so everything that had to be done was a pleasure to do. I didn’t become a Bridezilla, I am proud to say! It was important for me to stay relaxed and to be ok with things not going the way I wanted. Plan B can turn out better than Plan A. But come wedding day, we were both nervous. The morning was long and tiring, and the evening was a blur. The ceremony was the best part. It felt so natural, like we were doing what we were meant to do. Walking down the aisle with my father and then being given away to my husband was incredibly emotional.”
David states that his collection offers brides “over 200 dresses so they can truly have the opportunity to wear something different.” He also advises brides, “When you find the perfect dress, stop looking!
With so many incredible wedding gowns to choose from, the world’s most fashionable brides are sure to find their dream dress from David Fielden. Within the collection are wedding dresses with ethereal tulle skirts; fitted bodices with cap sleeves and beautifully sculpted necklines; dreamy appliques and see-through overlays; and oversized details that are jaw-droppingly dramatic, yet timelessly elegant.
Whether brides are planning on walking down the aisle at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire or saying “I do” at NYC’s Pierre Hotel, there’s undoubtedly a David Fielden gown to match the occasion.
