Luxury Bespoke Bridal Atelier | London
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 artist studio in Wembley Park
“I help brides who don’t want a dress that is typically bridal but who want to look elegant and feel confident on their big day. Often, the search for timeless elegance is combined with creating a dress that is exclusively designed and hand crafted in silk. A dress that is perfectly fitted in all the right places leaving my client free to enjoy the occasion with total confidence.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERTISE
Having trained in the art of couture dressmaking and mastering the skill of handling and working in luxury fabrics. I am one a few highly skilled London dress designers capable of achieving impeccable fitted gowns with appropriate balance and style for the individual. Also, having crafted bespoke gowns for high profile clients, requires deep understanding, patience and innovative creativity to mould and redefine the body [without surgery]. In short, I could [probably] craft any gown with minimal fittings [one of which could take place online] having done so many times over the years. But there is nothing that I enjoy more than working one-to-one with clients and the joy of seeing their transformation as the gown progresses at each fitting.
I LOVE WORKING WITH BRIDES…
Helping brides look and feel their utmost best fills me with pride. I love working with clients who have an innate understanding of the artistry, time and years of dedications behind the making of a couture bridal gown. Clients who recognise and who trust my advice and skills to deliver excellence every time.
“Cynthia used her natural passion and enthusiasm to create something quite special. The whole experience with Cynthia was so enjoyable as she is a wonderful lady who puts so much energy in to her work which is truly natural and unforced. She is great fun and we feel blessed to have met Cynthia and benefit from her services“.

“…Cynthia was amazing! She assured me that something could be done, was super friendly and made me feel 100 times better about my obvious faux pas. Within a matter of weeks, Cynthia had completely transformed my dress. It was unrecognisable from the garment I had handed over – in the most amazing way. I would highly recommend Oui Madam Bridal to anyone – highly skilled, professional, friendly and extremely trustworthy – which lets face it – we all need when preparing for that big day.
Thank you Cynthia!

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 dress of my dreams. I would recommend her to every bride. What a gem to find outside of London. She has worked with all the top design houses and it shows. One hugely talented lady.
