For Weddings and a Funeral

Back in 1993 we were asked to supply hats for a film with a strange title. Apparently, Oscar winning costume designer, Lindy Hemming was trawling the Oxford Street department stores looking for wedding hats and discovered that most of the ones that caught her eye were Herald and Heart's. So she tracked us down, we made her some hats, then forgot all about it. A year later, the movie hit the screens and we suddenly found ourselves in great demand all over the world. It's amazing how Four Weddings and a Funeral helped make us a living for all these years. We owe them quite a lot of thanks...
