Claire Austin England


Claire Austin is an award winning bridal accessories designer from Torquay. Claire handmakes all of her pieces in her Seascape Studio in Cockington.

Claire fell in love with the wedding industry and focused her attention on bridal headwear. Learning her craft at The British Millinery School, she was taught how to design and create hair vines using pearls, diamantes and crystals.  

Claire launched her exclusive bridal collection in 2016. Only the finest materials are used with a classic and timeless English style greatly influencing her work.

Claire’s most popular service is bespoke accessories. Brides can arrange a consultation at the studio and together they will create a unique headpiece using elements from their wedding dress and theme. She loves nothing more than making a special creation for a bride’s big day and taking them through the journey to handmake them a beautiful piece they can treasure forever.  

The Flower Collection features roses (made with mulberry paper) which are used for flower crowns, garlands, hair combs, hoops, poseys, bouquets and buttonholes, all hand painted to the bride’s desired colour.

Claire debuted her latest bridal collection in 2017 at The Artizan Gallery to an invited audience. Claire has won Best Accessories at the South West Wedding Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2020!  

"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!"
