These were the most delightful group of girls I’d ever met! They had all dressed as Minny Mouse for their friend’s hen party in Cardiff and had kept the weekend activities a secret from her so it would all be a surprise!
They’d travelled down from Brighton and checked into the Cardiff hotel before beginning the first activity of their weekend which was life drawing.
I have run hundreds of these events and so I knew what to expect and how to handle the girls! I was working for Madame Peaches on this occasion and we were using the Pole Twisters studio for the workshop.
This was an hour session which gave the girls plenty of time to produce some fantastic sketches. They used charcoal and pencil and did a variety of different drawing exercises which warmed them up.
At the end of the session we got some nice photos of the group and they went on their way to their next activity.
Hen Party Entertainment
Life Drawing Model & Buff Butler
Well it was another great hen party at this beautiful country holiday cottage near Bristol. I was working for Hens with Pens on this occasion and was accompanied by fantastic tutor and artist Hannah.
The Life Drawing workshop was a surprise for the bride. She’d been led to believe the girls would only be drawing each other. They spent some time drawing portraits of each other using pencil and charcoal and then were given a long break to refresh their drinks.
Hannah snuck me in so I could get changed and make my appearance.
The bride was lovey and genuinely surprised by the entrance of a male model.
It was a sunny day and the champagne was flowing and everybody was in good spirits.
The group produced some beautiful sketches, some of the hens having artistic backgrounds.
It’s always a surprise who will have talent for life drawing, and with the assistance of the tutor the hens often surprise themselves. There’s usually always a few in the group who produce some outstanding work!
After the hour was finished we said our goodbyes, the girls were headed out to Bristol that night for a night on the town.
Buff Butler & Life Drawing Model
Well this group of girls did not need any encouragement! They had already been drinking since the afternoon and my party games only made them more high energy!
I arrived in secret to surprise the Bride. One of the girls sneaked me into a spare bedroom so I could get changed into my Buff Butler outfit. They had rented a great house using Air BnB.
The hens were very friendly and definitely in the mood for a party! They had been doing “It’s a knockout” in Bristol all afternoon so they were eager to get dressed up and enjoy the evening by the time I got there.
After I made my big entrance I made sure everybody had drinks and we played some games. It all flowed very smoothly and they were egging me on as much as I was them!
