“Cynthia is a genius and incredibly good fun to work with, which was a huge bonus for me. I’m not easy to please and had some very specific ideas which I couldn’t necessarily communicate that well. Cynthia was patient, knew the questions to ask, invested a huge amount of time and created the bridal gown of my dreams. I would recommend her to every bride! What a gem to find…. She has worked with all the top design houses and it shows. One hugely talented lady”.
