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 day....so 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!Sent on 28/02/2020

The dress needed to be almost remodelled. Madame altered the dress for a wedding and it fit perfectly.Sent on 08/07/2019

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
