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!

Wow what a location! Parks court was one of the most impressive mansions I’d ever seen for a hen party! It had huge beautiful gardens, a massive living room (more like a great hall), open fire, a comfortable dining room and goodness knows how many bedrooms and out buildings.
It was a beautiful sunny day when I arrived at the gates. The girls had booked me as a surprise for their friend’s hen party and I was working for Hunks in Trunks on this occasion.
The bride’s sister sneaked me into the house so I could get changed and then I made a big entrance and presented the bride with a glass of Champaign.
The girls were lots of fun. We were playing drinking games from the get-go.
It didn’t take them long to get me doing handstands as you can see from the pictures!
The girls had booked a Chef through Hunks in Trunks and so it was my job to serve them food.
The meal was fantastic and the girls were very happy.
The only trouble was we wanted to play more drinking games after dinner but unfortunately had to leave t attend t another booking in Bath! I would have been very happy to stay to help with more games.
We made sure we got plenty of photos and I thanked them for having me then went on my way.
It was a lovely bunch and I was very glad to meet them.

Wow what a beautiful location for a hen party! This group of hens had booked a beautiful wooded cabin at Forest Holidays in Forest of Dean Wales.
I was working for Hens with Pens on this occasion to deliver a 2 hour nude life drawing workshop for the girls.
The cabin was truly spectacular. I even had a chance to practise some handstands on my way to the site 🙂
When I got there the girls had all been chilling out eating breakfast and enjoying the Hot Tub and the Tree house! (Yes there is a Tree house!)
I got them warmed up with some practise sketches before presenting the first pose.
The quality of drawings improved rapidly through the session and by the end of it they were looking very real!
We took a break to have some prosceco provided by Secret Tea Party.
After two hours and a range of different poses I left the girls to enjoy their high Tea!
It was a fab afternoon and everybody had a great time.

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.

Bristol – Bath – South West
This could be the most enjoyable hen party I’ve ever done. The girls were incredibly sweet and friendly and they’d organised myself and Simon to surprise their friend with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.
We were working for Hunks in Trunks on this occasion.
They’d taken great care to keep us a secret and Sophie the bride was genuinely surprised.
After we’d poured everybody a drink we began the drinking games. We were pinning willies on the butler (blindfolded of course), competing to throw hoops on to willies (not real ones!), basically anything to do with Champaign chocolate blindfolds and willies!
We even got talking about Yoga and Handstands and we decided to start practising handstands in the kitchen! (Not usually a great idea but I am a professional handstand teacher and I know how to spot people safely so they can’t fall over)
The house they had rented was a beautiful holiday home (mansion) in Bath and it was walking distance from the town centre.
Simon the other butler was a delight to work with a very charming man who was great to be around.
After we’d all had fun for over an hour and got to know each other it was time to say goodbye and leave the girls to enjoy the rest of their evening.

Today I was working for Spartan Butlers at this fantastic Hen Party in Cardiff South Wales!
I was a surprise for the bride and I was snuck into the house so I could get changed and then make a big entrance!
The girls had chosen to dress up as super heros and they had already been partying for hours when I got there. They were already in a vey good mood!
I was asked to make cocktails all evening for the hens which I was very happy to do. They had already prepared all the ingredients I would need and then it was my job to make sure everybody stayed topped up!
We had lots in common because they were all avid Gym go-ers and we chatted for ages about the various classes they attend.
Some of the girls were dancers and fitness instructors and the bride was particularly interested in AcroYoga and circus aerial. A perfect group for me since I love all those things!
The group were a pleasure to be with, they were lots of fun.

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.

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!
