Hen Party Activities in Bristol – Life Drawing nr. Axebridge Somerset 

This group of Hens were completely surprised when I arrived to deliver their Life Drawing session. One of the girls had booked me and gathered all the girls into the living space of the big farm house they had rented for the weekend.

Once they were all seated I walked in and made big entrance. I introduced myself to the bride and said hello to everybody.


The girls produced some fantastic sketches using char coal and we did a range of different exercises to slow them to try different techniques

Non of them had any artistic background and they were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the sketches they produced.


We did long and short sketches to give the Hens a chance to work at different speeds, we also used non-dominant hand to draw some sketches and also some collaborations where they took it in turns to pass around each sketch and add a little each time.

I was with them for 90 minutes and it was a perfect amount of time to get into the flow.


The girls were from Bristol and a few of them even lived on the same street as me! 

At the end we got a group photo and said our goodbyes.

Hen Party entertainment activities in Blagdon Glamping Chew Valley Somerset nr. Bristol

Today I was providing a life modeling session for a hen party who were Glamping in Blagdon!

I was booked by Hens with Pens for this session and was working with a wonderful Art Tutor called Trudi.


The group was big! 20 hens and they were Glamping at a local campsite in Blagdon.

It was a beautiful day and the Champaign was already flowing when I got there.

I was a complete surprise for the bride and most of the group was not expecting me either! I made a big entrance. They had made a special request for me to introduce myself under a fake name, specifically, the name of the Bride’s first boyfriend! It was an in-joke which the group had been running and they all found it hilarious when I announced my pretend name. 

We began the life drawing and many of the girls produced fantastic sketches.

They also had a golf ball which was used as a drinking game, whenever the ball got put into somebody’s drink they had to down it! I managed to put this ball into at least 3 or 4 peoples drinks whilst I was inspecting their sketches which they all found very entertaining.

Trudi gave expert tuition and helped get the best out of the girls creative skills.

We all had a lovely time and when we finished we got a big group photo outside in the sun with Blagdon lake in the background.

The girls had more surprise activities planned but they couldn’t talk about it so as to keep it a secret for the bride.

We said our goodbyes and I left the girls to their day and I traveled to my next hen party to be a Buff Butler!

Bristol Buff Butler Hen Party at Box Hedge Farm B&B

This group of girls were fantastic fun they didn’t take any encouraging! Myself and Carl were working for Hunks in Trunks on this occasion. 


The Bride was super surprised when we walked in with a tray of shots and Champaign!

The girls had just finished eating dinner and were ready for some some games!

We got them to write down their most embarrassing moments and put them into a hat. We then chose each confession  and the bride had to guess who it was. If she guessed correct then the person drank a shot but if she guessed wrong then she had to drink!


The girls were from South Wales and had not told the bride where they were staying so it was all a complete surprise.

Finally we wrote dares and put them into a hat and whoever was unable to pick up the toilet role using their teeth had to do a dare!

We made sure the hens were topped up with drinks at all times.

Unfortunately it was only a 1 hour booking so the hour flew by and we would have loved to have stayed longer.

Super Hen Party Life Drawing workshop with Male Model – Bristol

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 in Bristol for Hen Party

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!

Cocktail Making Workshop for hen parties in Bristol and Bath

Since November 2015 I’ve been slowly buying the necessary ingredients, equipment & spirits to begin cocktail making workshops for hen parties in 2016!

I’m very lucky to have several good frieds help me learn the basic skills.  I’ve been building up my knowledge by learning one cocktail at a time and making sure I fully understand the process for each one.

Last night I made Cosmopolitans and Sex on the Beach for friends. It was exciting to use my new martini glasses and cocktail kit for the first time. We measured the ingredients exactly and added garnish to make it look visually appealing.

My trusty black bow tie fell apart (I’ve had it 2 years) so I didn’t quite have the full cocktail waiter look but it was a great first session.


The only equipment I need to get is sugar syrup, a cool box for transporting ice, tequila, tumblers, and boxes for the glasses, and then I should be ready to deliver high quality 90 minute cocktail making workshops for events and hen parties.

Over the next few weeks I will get some high quality profesional photos to convey what I’m doing properly and help hen party companies promote this activity.


If you would like to book my cocktail making workshop for your hen party then get in touch. There will be 6-10 cocktails on the menu.

I cover Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Oxford, Gloucester, Somerset, Devon, Cardiff.

Buff Butler Hen Party in Bristol – Montpellier

Today was my first job working for www.spartanbutlers.co.uk . This group of hens had traveled from all parts of the country to celebrate their friend’s final few months of freedom in Bristol.

They had hired a weekend house in the Montpellier area of Bristol which was packed full of quirky shabby chique furniture.

Hen Party Buff Butler – Bristol – Bath

The girls had dressed up in costume and I was a complete surprise for the bride. Only a few of the bridesmaids knew I was booked.

After I had spent time introducing myself I made sure everybody was topped up with bubbly and we began with the games.

We began with the toilet paper wedding dress game,  the twerking game, the inflatable …. weapons .. game, and many more.

A few of the hens had traveled far and arrived late and I made sure they settled in and relaxed as soon as possible.

I even demonstrated a handstand for the girls (after I’d got dressed!).

This was a lot of fun and I got to know the group very quickly. One of the girls was training for a boxing fight and was on a strict diet and was planning to go for a run in the morning! One of the girls was about to begin her own hand bag design business which she hoped to get stocked in major stores.

I was working for www.spartanbutlers.co.uk

Hen Party Entertainment in Cheltenham – Life Drawing! 

This is possibly the best fun I’ve had in a while. This group of hens were really enjoying themselves in a beautiful large mansion they had rented for the weekend in Cheltenham. I was a surprise for the bride and I was working for henswithpens.com on this occasion.

The girls had been warming up with some practise exercises when I arrived but they had no idea what to expect. Penny the art tutor snuck me in so I could get ready without the girls noticing.

When the moment was right the Bride was blindfolded and I snuck into the room ready to strike the first pose. After some giggles and introductions and some drawing instructions from Penny, we got going with the first sketch.

The girls were very merry from whatever they’d already been drinking. It was a large group with around 20 women. They had already been clay pigeon shooting that day and had celebrated the night before with a meal in the house. (Did I mention the house had a hot tub!?)

The girls produced some fantastic sketches and there was a lot of characters in the room. The mother of the bride even had a clay skulpting table and she decided to skulpt me out of clay rather than draw me!
