Top Talented Black Professionals

Updated: Dec 27, 2022

I simply cannot express my joy, pride and exhilaration at the announcement that we have been added to the BRIDES.COM  highly coveted list of "The most talented professionals in the Wedding Industry".

The list, made up of 150 talented Black Professionals, is such a game-changing achievement, that I am thrilled to be chosen and identified as a noteworthy  brand and up there among the established ‘best of the best’ Wedding Dress Designers in the UK.


This is one of the greatest celebrations of 2020 for me.  Particularly when it has been the most difficult year to date with the ongoing work of rebranding "Oui Madam Bridal" and morphing into Cynthia Grafton Holt, and I'm very proud to have achieved a prominent position where it is respected by bridal industry influences and their respective audience.

Cynthia is a highly skilled dressmaker with many years of experience in the wedding industry and her handcrafted bespoke gowns have been worn by high profile clients and celebrities." Brides Magazine

This is a such wonderful accolade, motivator and recognition for my skills as a bespoke wedding dress maker and designer.  The ongoing work of striving for excellence in my work whilst ensuring that every Cynthia Grafton Holt bride is cared for and provided with a service that is par excellence continues...

Thank you for the acknowlegement.


"My brides find me because they have a specific dream dress in mind or, they do not want a typical wedding dress. 

Often brides say they are looking for the kind of dress that is elegant and  that will fill her with confidence because it is comfortable, classically designed and flatters her body shape from every angle.   Over 30 years,  I have perfected the art of the internally fitted bespoke corset, using traditional techniques designed to support the bust and to reduce the waist by 2 inches. 

I create bespoke wedding dresses that are exclusively designed and perfectly fitted in all the right places, leaving my brides free to enjoy the occasion with total confidence.”
