Le Jardin | Ian Stuart 2018 Collection

Le Jardin | Ian Stuart 2018 Collection

‘Le Jardin!’

A celebration of nature by the world’s most inspiring artist.

 

Ian Stuart creates a style of gown that cannot be found in any other bridal wear label. His couture draping techniques, use of colour, texture, unusual appliques, tonal embroideries and stunning laces create an aesthetic that is both unconventional and undeniably beautiful.

For his 2018 collection, Ian has focused on capturing themes of nature within his designs. Weaving together beautiful butterflies, multi-coloured flowers, Japanese cherry blossom lace, scattered petals, waterfall textures and cascading roses.  This collection is a reflection of the perfect beauty found within the natural world.

Also celebrating the artistic talents of man, Ian has studied the techniques of the traditional Japanese kimono and obi, mixing fabrics and wrapping them around the body, creating a delicately textured look that is fresh, exciting and extremely flattering.  Ever inspired by his favourite era, Ian has paid particular attention to the dramatic draping of 1950’s designer Charles James and reimagined his heavenly style for the modern bride.

‘I am not tied to trends, only beauty’ is Ian’s heartfelt message; designing for that breath-taking moment when a bride is first laid eyes upon and not for the latest fashion trend.

We are certain that ‘Le Jardin’ will take your breath away, and remind you what it’s like to fall in love with a wedding dress …

Styled Shoot | Baroque Couture 2017

Styled Shoot | Baroque Couture 2017

Two Beautiful Photo Shoots, One Amazing Bridal Designer

Baroque Couture’s 2017 renaissance shoot takes inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings using deep red and gold richness to compliment the beautiful beading and styles within the collection. This collaborative shoot shows off each individuals input, from the designer, to the cake; the interior and exterior details to the makeup. Baroque contacted the photographer Elena at Elen Studio Photography to come on board and work on this dark and moody shoot. They began to plan the shoot using the perfect venue belonging to a friend. Upon visiting they were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the location and made the decision to go ahead with two styles of shoots. The indoor shots took naturally to the original historical painting re-creations and the outdoor worked in a way that followed the renaissance theme, however becoming inspired by brighter glistening whites and pinks. The angel wings bring an element of fun and angelic feel to the shoot.

The outdoors was styled by Niely from Strawberry House Interiors whilst the indoor shots were styled by Charlotte at Princess Occasions, working around the wonderful cake by Emma at Hello Cake. The models worked within the amazingly styled spaces wearing makeup by Caroline Kent and the collection by Baroque. The shoot involved 15 people working together on the day, and as Elaina explained “A wonderful chaos”.
