BRIDAL HAIR ACCESSORIES 

AWARD WINNING WEDDING HAIR ACCESSORIES DESIGNED & HANDMADE BY CLAIRE AUSTIN

 

Each and every one of my pieces has been carefully handcrafted for you and only you, to wear with confidence on the most important day of your life. Working from my coastal studio in Devon, UK, I create bespoke bridal accessories with a focus on style and sustainability, from stand-out statement crowns to ethereal and elegant hair vines and pins.

ROMANTIC WEDDING ACCESSORIES MADE IN DEVON, INSPIRED BY YOU AND DESIGNED TO TELL YOUR STORY...

My Philosophy

Creating made-to-order pieces for the modern bride, I endeavour to work ethically, minimising overproduction, surplus inventory and waste. My brand is built around bespoke accessories, a tailored service and an experience that will be remembered forever. I create hair accessories that are as unique and as special as every bride; designing pieces that become beloved possessions. 

 

Using only the finest materials, my designs have been lovingly crafted using an array of Preciosa gemstones, Czech glass beads, pearl and seed beads, crystals and delicate diamantés. I hand-wire each creation using silver plated, champagne gold or rose gold wire for an extra dash of luxury. Renowned for my stunning ceramic flowers, each petal boasts exquisite detailing and delicate craftsmanship. Handmade and fired in my studio, they can be carefully painted to effortlessly blend in with your chosen colour scheme. My ceramic floral pins also make the prettiest gifts for your bridesmaids – they can be hand-painted to match their gowns and can be worn time and time again after your special day. 

 

My online shop creations are ready and waiting to be worn down the aisle, but they are also customisable, so if you’ve seen something that you’re feeling smitten with, we can tailor it so that it suits you and your special day.

 

My headpieces are wonderfully flexible and can be worn in a variety of different ways, so if you’ve got your heart set on a particular hairstyle, you can count on a ‘Claire Austin’ piece to complement it perfectly. Please contact me if you would like advice on which base to choose for your hair style. Whether it be a hair vine, comb or pin/s; each and every design can also be worn with or without a veil, so the choice really is yours!

Bespoke Pieces 

Wearing a bespoke bridal accessory on your wedding day effortlessly adds a personal element to your aisle style, and there’s something remarkably special about knowing that you’ve worked with me to design it. I work with brides who know exactly what they want from their accessories, but I also work with women who need a little guidance and helping hand when it comes to choosing their creation. 

I adore weaving in your thoughts to the design process so that you’re just as much a part of it. After your complimentary consultation, you’ll be kept in the loop throughout the rest of the design process with regular communication, photographs and videos every step of the way, to ensure you can watch your visions become a reality. From concept creation through to the first step you take down the aisle, everything about your bridal accessories will have been produced in-house, by me.

 

There is something so utterly special about creating an accessory that has been made especially for you; a handcrafted heirloom with a story to tell.

Your Experience at Claire Austin

From the very moment you step foot inside my studio, your experience at ‘Claire Austin’ begins. The whole design process is dusted with magic and entwined with meaningful moments, becoming one that you’ll cherish forever.

 

I promise a completely personal service where you’ll be given my time, commitment and passion. We’ll sit down together with a glass of bubbly or your favourite hot drink with a slice of cake in my studio for your exclusive design consultation. My studio is based in Torquay, Devon so if you don’t live locally, we can arrange a video call to talk through the design online so that I can get to know you and your personality, whilst walking you through the materials and styles on offer. Or I can send you images and videos of materials via email or WhatsApp before coming up with a design – you’ll have the same experience except you won’t be physically in the room with me!  Together, we’ll discover ideas within your dress, colour scheme, bouquet and more, unravelling layers of inspiration and capturing your unique style.

You, as the bride, inspire my work. And in return, I offer you the opportunity to wear an heirloom on your wedding day that no one else has ever worn before and never will. My bridal accessory artistry is truly bespoke to you and this is something I wholeheartedly believe in. I also offer a service where I can incorporate details previously worn by loved ones, such a jewellery from your grandma’s necklace, a wedding headpiece worn over 50 years ago, or simply something with a little slice of history.
