Hi I am Clare, I am a 43 year old mum to my beautiful daughter Madison and my furbaby pup Toby.
I am passionate about helping you find the perfect gift for your wedding party, from bridesmaid thank you gifts to personalised gifts for your ushers
I love designing and creating, I am a qualified Interior Designer, I worked in the commercial interiors sector for 12 years before I walked away from my corporate job.
I became a Mum and wanted to watch my daughter grow, hence how this was all born. As much as I loved being a mum after a while I needed a challenge and to feel like
Clare again so I started my little business journey. I will say it's not been a walk in the park, it's been tough, lots of changes.
I started 14 years ago making bridal tiaras and jewellery, I have helped hundreds of brides over the years. I worked in a bridal boutique offering consultations on accessories.
I have invested in my skills and always learning new techniques.
Sadly years of twisting wire took its toll on my wrist and I had to stop making them. I continued with the jewellery side and launched my own fashion jewellery range which was worn by celebrities., from Emmerdale cast, Hollyoaks cast.
More recently I hit a point where I needed change, I need to be more creative, so back to studying I went and qualified in 2018 as a graphic designer.
I decided to split the business in two, Wildfig Weddings and Wildfig & Co where I create quirky jewellery and cute lifestyle products, and this is where we are today.
As a single mum running two businesses it really does not leave much me time, I do enjoy walking especially now with Toby and the odd glass of wine.
I have reached a point in my life (thinks this is a 40 thing) where the simple things make me happy, a perfect night for me now would be cuddled on the sofa with my daughter and pup watching a film with a cup of coffee.
Random facts: I love Turkish delight & after eights (anything mint chocolate actually) I have an obsession with candles, however very fussy and have to be berry scent.
I do run Wildfig Weddings soley on my own, however I am professional and take great pride in my work, I source the best materials to suit the budget in which the products are sold.
If you need any assistance when it comes to those bridal party gifts, please do not hesitate to contact me.
