Hermione de Paula is renowned for creating one-of-a-kind designs with expertly structured silhouettes and infinitely feminine details. Known for bringing colour to bridal through unique ombré variations and unexpected touches, Hermione is couture trained. Each design evolves from sketches, patterns, toiles, and embroideries drawn from Hermione’s inspiration and memories and executed through small specialist teams dedicated to each stage of the dress.
With the modern woman in mind, silhouettes and artwork bloom from an ever-growing and evolving botanical sketch library of unique hand embroideries and hand-painted prints that showcase the brand’s heritage. Hermione juxtaposes timeless silhouettes with contemporary elements to create wearable masterpieces. Each Hermione de Paula design is crafted by hand with love.
Fêted for her Couture creations, this season sees the launch of Hermione de Paula Demi Couture Bridal and Pret-a-Porter Evening and Bridal collections.
“Hermione de Paula, you magnificent sorceress!”
- Florence Welch, Singer
Hermione de Paula wedding dresses tell the story of love and the threads of our brides history – the personal details from their past present and future woven into them. Creating dresses sustainably is at the heart of Hermione's design philosophy. As an artist, Hermione has always felt profoundly affected by her environment, its history and her role in its future. In addition to each gown being handcrafted as a piece of heirloom art to cherish and pass down to future generations.
Hermione's 'trend setting' personal messages can be hidden among fern's and seascapes, or embroidered centrally for all your guest to admire. Hand embroider your wedding date, sentimental names or those special loved ones who can't attend the day.

Transform your outfit with a removable sleeve for a more covered, day time look and then reveal a strapless evening gown. Use over or under lays to add length and volume to a mini gown for a dramatic change.
Hermione's embroidered veils pair perfectly with any gown or wedding look. Choose a matching embroidery to go with your dress, or choose a modern cape to pair with a tailored pant suit. Have you dates and love notes surreptitiously stitched within the artwork, frame it as a piece of art, or hand down for generations to come.
Other Events and Evening
A printed look for reception dinner, or an embroidered mini for the post morning brunch, Hermione’s pieces can be worn across multiple days creating different looks with transitional elements. Trainless column silhouettes and hand painted sleeves are perfect for a black-tie, or red-carpet event.
