Claire takes a fresh approach to helping people find their soulmates.
Initially she set up her business as an events company for unattached men and women but realising that people needed extra help she set up her matchmaking service in April 2015.
Claire's bespoke dating company Soiree Society recently scooped Best Upcoming Matchmaker in the UK at the annual European and UK Dating Awards 2016 in the company of TV hit show First Dates which also picked up a top gong.
Soiree Society was the only Northern Ireland entrant to be recognised at the glittering London ceremony which is dubbed the Oscars of the dating industry and attracts competition from companies all over the UK.
