We advise all brides to make a virtual appointment prior to coming into the showroom to discuss your initial ideas with the team. During your virtual appointment we will share imagery and designs from Hermione’s wider botanical library and discuss the process and your personal timelines. We also work with many clients on an international basis and will be able to explain all options in full depending on where you are based and which service you require.

If there is a particular style/embroidery artwork you are most interested in or if you are looking to develop or create something new with us please send reference images to email@example.com prior to your appointment.
