We do love an exclusive preview at Sugahfix.com and we were one of the first to view the 2014 wedding collection from award-winning designer Ian Stuart at The Merchant Hotel. Organised by Ian Stuart’s exclusive stockist in Northern Ireland – Blush boutique on the Lisburn Road, this was a unique opportunity to view the collection and meet the designer for one-to-one appointments.
The Sugahfix gals shared a table with Ian Stuart, and bride-to-be and Sugahfix fave Katie Larmour who chatted with Ian about her impending nuptials. Katie is so laid back about the whole thing that she hadn’t even thought about her dress! Ian asked Katie about the mood of the event – was it going to be traditional or contemporary (a great question!) and where the wedding was – then everyone started chipping in with ideas! Oh the romance!
Check out the Instagram photos and videos @Sugahgal for extra sneak peeks.
Brides-to-be viewed the collection while enjoying a sumptuous afternoon tea. After the show they were able to try on the beautiful dresses and chat with Ian and get his opinion on the style, colour and design as well as getting a few bespoke ideas to customise the dress just for that bride!
The Flower Room in Holywood provided the stunning room displays including the floral headdress worn by model Ashleigh, and bouquets that fitted in perfectly with the Ian Stuart wedding dresses. Hair was created by Brenda Shankey and her team and the bridal beauty looks were by make-up artist Caoimhe Curran.
To view the Ian Stuart 2014 bridal collection visit Blush Boutique, Lisburn Road, Belfast or tel: 028 9066 1101 to make an appointment.
