ようこそおいでくださいました。(Yaw*-ko-so O-i-de-ku-da-sa-i-ma-shi-ta)

You may also say "ようこそお越しくださいました"(Yaw*-ko-so O-ko-shi-ku-da-sa-i-ma-shi-ta). You do not say "O-kya-ku-sa-ma (meaning visitor or customer)" unless you want to call him or her. 'Aw' in 'Yaw' is pronounced as 'aw' in 'saw'. You would say "I-ra-shya-i-ma-se (meaning welcome)" when welcoming your customer entering your shop or restaurant, but it seems inappropriate in this setting.
