When to remove support from Wedding Day David Austin rose?

Hi all!

My lovely Mum bought my husband and I a ‘Wedding Day’ David Austin rose when we got married back in November last year. 

It’s doing really well where I have planted it. My question is when I should remove the bamboo support structure that it came with? (The instructions said to keep it on, but don’t say when to take it off?)
Thanks!

    I think it's just there to keep the canes somewhat together, but as it's in the ground and against your support, I would just remove it and tie in the canes when they get long enough to train. Looks to be one to the front left making a getaway. By the way, maybe you know this already, but Wedding Day gets to be a very large plant.

    Thank you @Omori. I have removed and tied in the shoots to point towards the fence. 

    I am am aware that it gets to be a big plant. It has lots and lots of fence panels to cover to hoping it will be ok.
