Model with Down syndrome stuns in bridal photo shoot

Madeline Stuart, a professional model with Down syndrome, appeared in a breathtaking bridal photo shoot.

The 19-year-old Australian model is taking the world by storm. Being the world’s first professional model with Down syndrome, she rocked the New York Fashion Week runway (twice) in February, appearing in the FTL Moda show with an outfit designed by LuLu et GiGi. Stuart even had a handbag named after her by the fashion label everMaya.

Stuart continues to provide inspiration for people everywhere. This month she appeared in a bridal shoot photographed by Sarah Houston. It took place in the Rixey House, a popular wedding destination and country house in Northern Virginia. The stunning photos show Stuart modeling three different wedding gowns by Ava Laurenne Bride.

“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, owner of the Rixey House 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.”
