Luxury Bespoke Bridal Atelier | Cookham Berkshire

Cynthia trained under former Dior cutter Edward Thornton, at the London College of Fashion.  Going on to work for Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham, where she gained a reputation for elegant and exacting tailoring, in the finest couture tradition.  This experience has led her to specialise in bespoke bridal wear.  Cynthia is a true designer-maker – designing, pattern cutting, machining and finishing all the pieces herself, by hand, with care.

Cynthia makes only twenty bespoke bridal pieces a year, dividing the rest of her time between her MA students at Central St Martins, and her work for the press collections at London Fashion Week.

Cynthia is based in Nottinghill but works from her quiet atelier by the river Thames in Cookham

“Designing bridal wear comes instinctively and is all I dream about.  The opportunity to share a brides dream and vision is such an honor that I take on with pride and passion.  There is nothing more rewarding than to see my bride beaming with pride at the breathtakingly beautiful reflection in the mirror – It is only then, that I consider my work to be complete.

Thank you also to the bridal press, editors and stylists from leading bridal magazines who have endorsed my work and fortified my vision for elegant timeless bridal wear that surpasses time”
