I’ve been making pretty things since I was a little girl. I’m fascinated by the magic that happens when you take a needle and thread to a bit of lace, some pearls and crystals. I’m incredibly blessed to spend my days making beautiful accessories for brides. It’s an absolute passion of mine. To me, the client is everything. Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life. I’m here to complete your look with the perfect bridal accessory.

Bella Chiara started in 2012, when a friend asked if I could help out a bride of hers. The bride had ordered an accessory from America and it hadn’t arrived. Her wedding day was 10 days away. She sent me the photo of what she had ordered and I set to work, recreating the prettiest branch of faux cherry blossoms. She was delighted with what I had created for her, and I had discovered the beautiful world of bridal accessories.

Special words from Clients

A little tear came to my eye when I unwrapped your package this morning. Claire, you have made my day, week, month – I am so chuffed with my garter set and ring bowl, and so darn excited to get married! Thank you!!!

This morning I went to garter heaven! Dearest Claire…your eye for detail, your exquisite talent and creative hand has made me an absolute breathtaking keepsake, one that will not only be admired on my big day but also kept safe for those fond memories in years to come! Your gift to me was one of pure talent and admiration for detail and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for every stitch of lace!

Absolutely love Bella Chiara’s bridal accessories. I was blown away by her handmade designs today. The garter, headpiece and the veil are exactly everything I wanted and more… Thank you for making my dream bridal accessories so beautifully. You made my day, Claire! Can’t wait to wear them on my wedding day! xxx

Thank you so much for creating the bridal accessories of my absolute dreams! I know how much time and effort went into making it and I am so grateful! Definitely a great designer I would recommend.
Michelle Marshall
I wanted to say thank you so very much for my hair accessory you made for my wedding.  From the very first contact I had with you things went so smoothly.  I had approached another company before you and was so disappointed when they turned me away saying my design was too detailed and they did not have time to make that design before my wedding.

You were very friendly and helpful from the word go and you built my excitement with the unveiling we did in your lovely studio.  Not only did I get an awesome accessory but it came in a handcrafted box with a very thoughtful card which I believe was also hand painted.  There are clearly no limits to your brilliance and creativity. Again thank you so much for adding to making my day as perfect as it was.

My veil is beyond perfect and I cannot wait to wear it!!! I put it on in my office yesterday and my staff went crazy (some even started crying… ha ha ha). Claire went as far as putting in a little gift with my veil and I know I will use it to put my ring on next to my bed at night. Her service is incredible and I will most definitely recommend her. Thank you again I so appreciate it and will send you pics after our special day.

Hi Claire, thank you for the amazing ring holder and special note with the protea!  We absolutely love it, it is displayed on our butlers tray.

Hi Claire, I’ve received my little parcel – and I love it! Can’t wait to get home later this evening and actually try it on. Eeeek! I’ll send you photos from the wedding day, so you can see your masterpiece in action.
