Boyfriend Turned Husband
Clare, after getting engaged to her boyfriend on 2015, finally decided to tie the knot with Brandon two years after on 21 October 2017.

However, though a little late, the wedding between the duo was perfect. Pre-planned from months before the actual date, Clare shared her excitement for the wedding in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on January 2017.
“I had never wanted to get married before Brandon, which I kind of love. We’re picking flowers and I’m designing dresses. … It’s so beautiful. It’s so much fun. I had no idea because I didn’t have any dreams about it before him.”
The duo, who finally got married at the Cedar Hill Refuge in Nashville, Tennessee by their good friend John Carter Cash, had a great wedding function, as highlighted by Cate herself through her Twitter account. The singer, posting pictures of her shoes, mentioned just how much fun the wedding party was.
"Sign of a really good party. Danced so much, my slipper blew a sparkly."
