Model With Down Syndrome Totally Owns This Gorgeous Bridal Photo Shoot

By

We've all seen picturesque wedding shoots featuring gorgeous brides in flowing white dresses.

However, I recently came across one model who's truly beautiful, inside and out.

Allow me to introduce you to Madeline Stuart.

Stuart is a stunning Australian model with Down syndrome who's on a mission to change the way people view disabilities while also helping to raise awareness.

This 18-year-old model recently teamed up with talented photographer Sarah Houston and took part in a beautiful bridal photo series at Rixey Manor in Virginia that will take your breath away.

During the photo shoot, Houston captured Stuart in a variety of romantic scenes as Stuart modeled all sorts of gorgeous gowns and fur shawls from Ava Laurenne Bride, complete with floral bouquets crafted by Good Earth Flowers and Events.

Whether Stuart is twirling around the dance floor with her fellow groom, walking down the aisle in her flowing ensembles or simply standing at the alter holding a bouquet, it's not hard to see she makes one seriously mesmerizing bride.

However, that shouldn't come as too much of a surprise since Stuart is a seasoned model who appeared on the runway in FTL MODA's shows during New York Fashion Week.

Madeline says on her Facebook,

I hope through [modeling] I can change societies view of people with disabilities, exposure is creating awareness, acceptance and inclusion.

Take a look at the photos below to see to see this inspiring model.
