Modern Bridal Couture London - I love working with brides who know exactly what they want. Brides who are kind and courteous and who appreciate the years that it has taken me to achieve the level of skills that I have. Brides who love the experience and the journey behind the making of their unique, one-of-a-kind wedding dress. Brides who will treasure for a lifetime the memories that we have made together.

Oui Madam Bridal Couture is a must visit for the bride who wants a unique bridal gown that no-one else has and who prides herself on the excellence that a Bespoke Wedding Dresses service will provide. Working one-on-one with the designer to create an exacting dress in the perfect shade in any combination of fabrics and laces, is a dream come true and a lasting treasure and talking point for years to come!

We love with unbridled passion, the joy of creating uniquely Hand Made Wedding Dresses from our North London workroom. We equally love the challenge to create designs that brides can wear their dress again and again.

Our Skills & experience is extensive as we have worked alongside many of the leading Fashion and Bridal Gown designers amassing over 30 years of skills working on breathtaking gowns for A-list celebrities and socialites. And nothing gives us greater joy than using our skills to help brides acheive their dream wedding dress.

Highly Recommended!

I, like may brides to be, made the fatal mistake of ordering a dress a couple of sizes smaller with the expectation that I was going to drop a load of weight before the big when I turned up and met Cynthia, (after doing a lot of searching for Wedding Dress Alternations) at her beautiful boutique shop in Cookham, I was a little (more than a little) panicked. Not only was the dress far too small, but it also had very little shape - ie it did not pull in in the right places....all in all it was a bit of a disaster. 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 Madame 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!

Oui Madame

The dress needed to be almost remodelled. Madame altered the dress for a wedding and it fit perfectly.

Wedding day saved

Cynthia saved my big day! She went the extra mile to alter my gown at short notice, so professional, friendly and accommodating.

Work was excellent and she made sure that I was happy and she was happy before I left the shop. I highly recommend her and would definitely use the service again.

My fairytale Wedding Dress

I have always love the window displays at Oui Madam Bridal Boutique as I drove past there on my way to work..So when I popped in to look at the dresses, they were absolutely beautiful and it was difficult to choose which one. Cynthia was excellent fun to work with and a total professional. As she got to know me, she made recommendations for my dress that exceeded my expectations. It was such an amazing experience to work with a true designer and was perhaps the highlight of my wedding journey.
The price of my dress was no more that a regular high street shop, but i got the pleasure of seeing it at every stage. Even you live half the country away, this company is well worth the journey.
Thank you Cynthia, I cannot recommend you enough.

Cynthia Grafton-Holt
Designer and Founder

Hi I am Cynthia, Owner and dress designer of the Oui Madam Bridal boutique.

I was trained by former Dior cutter Edward Thornton, at the London College of Fashion. I have worked for Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham, where I developed my skills and reputation for elegant and exacting tailoring, in the finest couture tradition. I now specialise in bespoke bridal wear and create dresses for brides who cannot find a dress that they love and one that embraces their style and persoanlity. I am totally passionate about my work and invite you to research and read what my past customers have said about the service that I offer.

I only make approximately twenty bespoke bridal pieces a year, dividing the rest of my time between MA students at Central St Martins, and press work for London Fashion Week.

I am based in Nottinghill and also at my quiet atelier by the river Thames in Cookham
