Every dress that we create is personally fitted by me, Cynthia, and made by the Oui Madam bespoke bridal team in our private London Studio. We pride ourselves on being passionate, patient and caring about making unique wedding dresses for the fashion forward bride. With quality and friendly service that is second to none, you will be made to feel at home in the warmth of our little bridal boutique nestled in Cookham Berkshire.  Although based in Berkshire, we also offer our London or further afield brides, the option of a meeting in our London studio or, a very personalised home fitting service. Bring your imagination. We’ll take care of the rest.

Design

DRAW | MEASURE | SKETCH

A design is created for you based on your likes, body type and sources of inspiration.  We offer expert advice on the most suitable types of fabric and colour according to your skin tone.  Choose from a wide range of Silks and Laces from France, Italy, Spain and the UK; many of which are used by leading designers such as Ralph & Russo, Dior, Lanvin and Valentino. The design consultation is around 45mins and costs £69.00, which is then refundable against your bespoke bridal gown purchase.

Pattern

PRINT | CUT |TAILOR 

The first pattern is usually completed 12 weeks before your wedding.  At your first fitting, a mock-up of the final dress in calico is produced.  Calico is useful as it allows you to see both the fit and style and make adjustments to the silhouette if necessary. Two or three calicos is standard for a bespoke design to guarantee perfection before your final wedding dress is made.

Make

PIN | SEW | EMBELLISH

All our wedding dress are made in London by our team of specialist dressmakers.  At the final dress fitting we make sure the hem length is perfect for your heel height and your train is adjustable to allow for dancing into the night.  Your dress is then returned to the studio one last time for hand finishing, pressing and a fond farewell from everyone who has made your dream dress come alive. The process of making a bespoke dress is from 50 hours upwards.  Occasionally, we can produce your dress in as little as 6 weeks depending on availability. We also carry out wedding dress alterations and re-modelling work on vintage gowns.
