Why are you an Ian Stuart stockist?
I wanted to become and Ian Stuart stockist because it is such an amazing label. It creative, with a recognisable style that stands out from all the other bridal labels. Ian doesn’t conform to trends and make his own rules. He creates a fairytale fantasy for each bride.
What is your favourite Ian Stuart moment?
My favourite moment is going to London to see the new collection. I get to see Ian and his team, or as I like to call them Ian and the family. They have a genuine passion for what they create as well as being a collective unit. Ian is so modest in relation to his talent, but he is always full of passion and genuine.
What is the ethos of the boutique?
Here at Ti Adora we believe that every bride is special, our bride comes first. I have nearly twenty years of experience within the industry so I feel that I can observe a brides colouring, body shape, personality, but more important listen to her and create a look that is perfect for her. I also love to have fun with my brides and try to create something that is truly unforgettable.
What is your favourite Ian Stuart gown?
Hand down, without question or hesitation, Flowerbomb! Its creative, funky, has an amazing upper body shape and is full of drama.
What do you like more about the bridal industry?
I love meeting people and them saying, “The bride was stunning, I knew she got her dress from you”. We are a small shop and we work individually with each bride, we are not about numbers, we are able people.

What is you favourite thing about being in the bridal industry?
The fact that every day is different. We enjoy the creativity of working with our team, our brides and our designers so we never have that Monday morning feeling.
We never get tired of discussing the latest bridal trends and opening boxes when our samples from the new collections arrive, it always feels like Christmas.
The very best bit of our day is hearing from one of our brides telling us about her wedding day and sending us pictures which we always put proudly on display on ‘Our Bride‘ gallery.
