Testimonials & Real Bride Photographs
Claire was so helpful in creating a bespoke order for myself and my five bridesmaids and flower girl; all of whom had something slightly different. We went through initial ideas together and she was in contact every step of the way to make sure she created the perfect product for our wedding. Nothing was too much and the final products were absolutely stunning. Not only were they delivered quickly but came beautifully wrapped, making them the perfect gift for my bridal party to keep long after the wedding. I could not recommend Claire enough.

Claire created floral crowns for myself and my four bridesmaids for my wedding day. Her service was highly professional, but also incredibly personal as she took the time to Facetime me with ideas and designs to ensure my order was perfect.
When I received my order I was not only touched by her level of love and care with the packaging but also just how beautiful the headpieces were. They are incredibly durable, whilst looking as delicate as real flowers.
My bridesmaids were also delighted at receiving such a lasting gift for them to not only wear on the day, but like me, treasure forever!

Claire made the whole process of designing a bespoke headband for myself and my little bridesmaid totally seamless.
Claire's expertise meant that our flower headbands came out perfectly and we got so many lovely comments at the wedding. Thank you!

I won bespoke bridal headpieces for my wedding through a competition and as soon as I contacted Claire she was nothing but helpful. After realising that we were local to each other, we arranged a meeting. Claire was brilliant, bringing sample flowers and designs for us to see first hand. They were beautiful and I knew my hair pieces were in safe hands. After deciding on colours and designs, my now husband, asked about button holes. Although this wasn’t part of the original competition, Claire was more than accommodating and we decided on 4 hair pieces, a flower crown and 7 button holes.
Claire kept me updated the whole way through the design process with images and emails. When they were complete, Claire hand delivered them to us, delicately packed amongst tissue paper. She even included a little card to wish us luck which was a beautiful, personal touch.
I couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. They were easy to work with and my hairdresser commented on the quality and design. As I didn’t have a veil, the dainty flowers were the perfect finish to my look.
Thank you Claire.
I ordered the Ivybridge hairpiece and 2 flower garlands for my flower girls for my wedding in August. I emailed Claire about my order and she responded very quickly. Her communication was very prompt and very warm. She is so friendly and personable, sending regular updates on the order and even a video message showing the completed goods. The head pieces were beautifully wrapped complete with a lovely card from Claire. The service felt very personable and the headpieces themselves were perfect. I would highly recommend Claire and her products!

Claire has created a beautiful hair vine for myself, 3 beautiful combs for my bridesmaids and a beautiful clip for my Mum for my big day next year. As I live locally, my mum and I met at with Claire at her house and talked through all of our ideas; with Claire showing me lots of pictures and examples of ideas. Claire was so welcoming and friendly, making the whole experience so enjoyable. Once we’d had the initial bride consultation Claire was always in contact showing me the... progress of the hairpieces, keeping me involved along every step. I received the finished pieces last week and i, along with the other 4 members or my bridal party are so in love with them! They are more beautiful than I can have imagined, and the effort that Claire went to to find the perfect colour Swarovski crystals to match my colour scheme makes them so unique and special to my big day. It has made me so excited to wear them next year! I cannot recommend Claire highly enough!
I asked Claire to do my wedding flowers because I had previously bought a really pretty headband off the website which was absolutely stunning.
Claire surpassed all of my expectations - she listened to all of my requirements in detail and made some great suggestions too. I was overwhelmed when the parcel arrived - the bouquets, floral crown and button holes were exactly what i imagined. Everyone commented on the day how pretty and unique they were, and to be able to keep our flowers was a real bonus.
Such a professional, talented and unique service and genuine care about creating something special for your big day.

I asked Claire to make hair accessories for my bridesmaids and flower girl, not only beacuse she is a close friend but because her work is amazing.
I had previously bought headbands from her before and thought they were beautiful and I wanted something special for my wedding day.
Claire asked me what I wanted, listened to all of my requirements, gave her professional opinion and made the most gorgeous hair combs and bun wrap that perfectly matched the colour of our theme. They were made very quickly and before I knew it had arrived in the post, beautifully wrapped with a personal message.
Guests commented on the day how stunning and unique they were, and for my bridal party to be able to keep them afterwards was a real bonus.
An amazing, professional and talented service by Claire.

Claire Austin is both patient and talented person. From my brief Claire designed and created a beautiful birdcage headdress with matching chiffon flowers and crystals perfectly to my deep red wedding dress and jewellery. During the process Claire regularly updated me with texts, email and pictures during the ...process to make sure that I was happy with how the headdress was progressing, even when I changed a few things Claire was more than happy help and changed what was needed to make sure it was perfect for my wedding day.
It was perfect for me and I can't thank her enough for creating a beautiful headdress’
I wish I could give Claire more than 5 stars!! She is so talented and great to work with. I ordered a bespoke piece and she consulted me every step of the way to turn my dream headpiece into a reality :) I’m so excited to wear it on my wedding day! I can’t thank her enough. I’d recommend Claire to everyone very highly!

Claire created me a beautiful Lustleigh hair vine with pearls, Swarovski crystals and paper flowers. She also made me 2 gorgeous flower girl crowns with rose gold and ivory mini paper flowers. All 3 were absolutely stunning. I loved mine and the flower girls both looked adorable. Claire was fantastic to discuss ideas with, so helpful and went out of her way to take videos of progress to make sure she was doing exactly what I wanted. I couldn't praise Claire enough. And I will definitely be recommending her to every bride I know!
Beautifully made bespoke handcrafted pieces. Claire is a joy to be around and such a fabulous talent. We'll be recommending her to our brides if they're looking for unique, elegant, high end bridal head wear.
I have worked with Claire a few times over the past year. As an editorial photographer i asked Claire to create some bespoke item's to fit with my concepts. She has created many beautiful head pieces for my Bridal and Fashion work and she never fails to deliver.
I have worked with Claire on two occasions for photoshoots. On both these occasions she has created such unique, feminine and beautiful designs with fantastic structure! Each piece she designs is fit perfectly for the occasion, keeping in mind the wants and needs from her clients. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that I will come to Claire when a future wedding comes around! Such a friendly, professional and overall lovely person to work with.
I worked doing photography for Claire at a festival last summer and have to say that it was a joy. Customers were a plenty and happy with their purchases to say the least. Her products are brilliant and Claire herself is a delight
I can't thank Claire enough! I received my bespoke floral headband order and matching hair combs for my bridesmaids and flower girl today.
From start to finish Claire has been superb, always messaging me different ideas and going through all the different stages with me.
The final products brought a tear to my eye when I received them - they are truly beautiful, and I can't believe how real the flowers look! Even the packaging had so much care put into it!
I can not wait to wear my bespoke crown for my wedding next year. In fact it makes me want to get married now so that I can wear it.
Claire finished the order off by making it even more personal with a lovely little thank you card.

I originally only purchased x3 of the “Thank you for being my bridesmaid” rose hair grips for the girls which were just beautiful. When I collected them I started talking to Claire about having a bespoke hair piece for myself. I showed her a picture of what I had in mind and with 1 week to go before my wedding - having no time to get anymore materials other than what she had at home, she created my beautiful bridal comb.
What a professional and talented lady Claire is, she sent me continuous photos and videos of her making it to keep me in the loop and from the beginning I knew I would love it!
Thank you so much Claire, it was more than I imagined and finished the look off beautifully.
Claire has been one the best people I have worked with in the build up to my wedding! The shell crown I requested is stunning (will post pics after the wedding)! She’s easy to talk to and communicates clearly! She’s so helpful and all the elements I was hoping for she found a created such a stunning piece!!! I feel very lucky to have worked with her!!! Also the price was very reasonable and all I can see is if your thinking about getting something from Claire....do it!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Claire for my gorgeous flower crown that I won in her competition a few months ago! It’s beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it for my wedding! Would 100% recommend to anyone. Thank you!!!
I had my wedding in Spain and used Claire Austin for my bridal hair piece and bridesmaids hair piece. It was so easy to order and she kept in touch with me the whole time as we messaged back and fourth from Australia sending me pictures of exactly what I wanted.
No detail was too small to change. I wasn't living in London at the time so I was concerned as I wasn't going to see them before my wedding. There was no need to worry because they arrived at my mums in plenty of time and in great packaging so my mum was able to transport them to Spain without them getting squashed. When I saw them I was so happy. Claire even included beautiful clips for my bridesmaids. I couldn't recommend her any more. They were just perfect! My little sisters still wear their flower girls head bands a year on <3
My best friends bridal head piece was made by Claire, it was absolutely stunning!
We also had flower grips in our hair as bridesmaids which were made by her too.
She’s definately a go to when looking for bridal accessories, she’s also absolutely lovely!
Thanks Claire, would recommend highly x
Claire made our bridesmaid grips and my best friends head piece which both were absolutely beautiful.
The brides head piece was stunning and absolutely dazzled in her hair!
Claire you are so talented and add that extra bit of sparkle and a special touch to our outfits.
Thank you so much to Claire for making my wedding comb. I absolutely love it. I was really struggling to find anything. Then i came across Claire hair accessories. I love how they are hand made. Really gives that personal touch.
Claire crafted me a bespoke Gidleigh for my winter wedding - it’s length and hooks were customised for the hairstyle I wanted. I absolutely loved the finished product and it looked amazing on my wedding day. Claire was really friendly and responded to my messages quickly. I would highly recommend her work if you’re looking for something unique but beautiful for your wedding.
Claire made my bridal hair jewelry. I wanted something special and unique for my bridesmaids to match my huxham hair vine so she guided me and together we designed bespoke pieces to give as gifts for the big day. They were just perfect. Thank you for all your time and help you are an absolute star. Living in Cornwall but coming from Torquay it was lovely to have a little bit of my home town with me as I walked down the aisle.
Claire made my amazing headpiece and i could not recommend Claire enough. Claire kept me in the loop every step of the way and sent videos of the design. The headpiece was absolutley amazing, packaged beautifully and I got so many comments from guests. Just wonderful, thank you so much.
