Hen Party Ideas
Have you been bestowed the privilege of organising your best friend’s hen party? Or maybe YOU are the ‘Bride-to-be’, looking for some stylish hen party ideas that will entertain your friends. Perhaps you are looking for just one activity that will last a whole evening and will leave you all feeling like a million dollars, in preparation for the big day itself?
This week I’ve been collaborating with a good friend of mine. She’s a fabulous make-up artist in London. Together, we have tailor-made a hen-party activity, which we believe is sexy and fun – suited to the more sophisticated and discerning bride in London or Essex. We’ve combined our skills and expertise in make-up and portrait photography, and called it the “Boudoir Experience.”
The term ‘boudoir’ usually refers to a woman’s private room like her dressing room. It’s an intimate and feminine space, sometimes furnished in Renaissance or French style. For your hen party, this boudoir experience can be enjoyed with your friends either in your home or at a five star hotel in London or Essex– the choice is yours. We will share our hen party ideas with you and will create a very personal experience for you and your friends. Your boudoir experience will leave you with some fabulously beautiful and elegant boudoir portraits to cherish forever – that will be unique to you!
Of course, you and I know that the best things in life don’t come cheap, and hen party ideas like this one won’t appeal to everyone’s taste either. That’s okay because this Boudoir Experience is only for the bride who appreciates the finer things in life and wants to make her memories precious.
To give you an taste (we don’t want to give all the surprises away) … whilst sipping champagne, Frederique will style your hair and give you a professional make-over using specialist make-up. Afterwards, you’ll step into the boudoir for a mini photo-shoot with me. Wearing your favourite lingerie, swim-wear or whatever you feel comfortable wearing, I’ll take a collection of tasteful candid and posed photographs of you. Don’t worry if you’re a bit shy in front of the camera, I will have you feeling like an A-list celebrity in no time.
Whilst each person is being pampered in turn, there will be other ‘make-over’ activities to keep your hens occupied. Then, before the evening ends, the final photo opportunity will be a group shot ‘Pin-up’ style. You’ve seen the Betty Grable iconic pose haven’t you? Her bathing suit poster made her the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II. Or what about Marilyn Monroe – are you getting the picture?
If you would prefer a different style of group photo, perhaps a different era or theme, I would welcome your own suggestions as I’m always open to collaboration!
Each hen will leave feeling pampered and informed- she’ll know exactly what she’s doing when she’s getting ready to be your bridesmaid. She’ll also receive a keepsake group pin-up photo to remember her Bridesmaid experience by. She will also be able to access and purchase her own individual boudoir portrait if she wants. Of course, the Bride will be looked after in other ways to make her memories more precious.
This is no ordinary hen party activity – for no ordinary Bride. The quality of this event is non-negotiable. If this boudoir experience has made it on to your shortlist of hen party ideas and appeals to your sense of style, get in touch. It is intended for a small group of ten women, and starts at £1200 in Essex or London. A five star hotel option is also available.
To discuss your Hen Party or any other special party where you would like to enjoy the Boudoir Experience with your friends, please call me on 0208 989 4886 or drop me an email. Frederique and I would love to hear from you.
