It was wonderful to be asked to photograph some of our favourite designer wedding dresses this past Autumn, we've been lucky to photograph real brides in many of Ian Stuart wedding dresses over the years and without doubt they are some of the most stunning wedding gowns from a UK bridal designer.
Many brides have always imagined walking down the aisle in a large white wedding dress but it's fun to see that other less traditional colours can work and be just as beautiful. The wedding dresses are all part of the new Ian Stuart wedding dresses 2013 Supernova collection and we were amongst the first to see them. The dresses featured as part of the shoot were Carmen, Vanity Fair, Kahlua, Monsoon and Orange Blossom.
The concept was include a little Autumnal colour as well as show off the designer dresses against a stunning backdrop, a really cool wedding venue right on the Dorset coast called Pennsylvania Castle. Huge thanks for Tracy at Wedding Time Bridal Saloon in Dorchester supplied the dresses (if you are in the search for your dream wedding dress you must visit Wedding Time in Dorchester) who trusted us with the dresses and looked after all the models for the day.
Thanks goes as well to Angela of Angela's Floral Design for creating the bouquets as well as being mum to Chole, one of the models for the day along with Nicole (one of our past wedding clients!) and Jo of Penn Castle. Hair design by Helen of Salon on the Square in Beaminster did an amazing job and our own Teri was the professional make-up artist for the day (as well as creating many of the images below!).
