After Ashley Graham’s history-making Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover, Madeline Stuart is the latest diverse model to make waves in the fashion world. The 19-year-old, who has Down syndrome, strutted down the runway at last month’s New York Fashion Week, and her latest project is equally gorgeous.
The model stars in a bridal photo shoot from Sarah Houston Photography that’s sure to give you serious wedding inspiration. Stuart models a series of gowns from Ava Laurénne Bride at Rixeyville, Virginia’s dreamy Rixey Manor alongside model Quaid Coxsey.
“A lot of newly engaged women cannot see themselves as a bride because all the images magazines use are of these tall, thin models,” Isadora Martin-Dye, the co-owner of Rixey Manor, told The Huffington Post UK. “I think that being a bride is a life experience that every woman should be able to see herself doing.”
From the stunning gowns to Stuart’s eye-popping makeup, we’d say this unique shoot is the perfect bridal inspiration.
