My Hen Weekend

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

At the beginning of the month I got to celebrate my self, in the way of my amazing Hen Weekend. Most of you may know we're not getting married until October, but due to times available and hoping for slightly nicer weather we opted for July. At the time it was booked (January) it was the perfect mid way point until the wedding, and I really thought it would keep me going, with some awesome to look forward to. 

My oh my was it awesome! Every time I think about it a huge smile crossed me face, I feel so fortunate and lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. 
My two gorgeous Bridesmaid planned, arranged and booked it all. It was all them, Clare & Sian will always be in my hearts for that, they really could not of done a better job, even if I had my say in it. 

The Weekend was filled with many a photo (of course) wellies with posh frocks, afternoon tea, hot tub action and a fridge full of Prosecco. There was a surprise and lovely thought around each corner, I felt so very special and important, with the most cherished people in my life ♥
I am terrified of tacky willies, hate satin sashes and only last until 12pm on a night out. This Weekend was full of afternoon tea, floral sashes, the prettiest veil, pretty bunting and our very own diy photo booth. The cottage was picturesque, with rolling hills and a stunning back drop of countryside. The rooms were all uniquely decorated with pretty interior, floral bedsheets, and the sweetest shabby chic decor. 

I'm such a soppy cow, but I really look back at the photos and my heart is filled with warmth and love! I've learnt so much about people while planning our wedding, but these girls who put their time and effort into coming, and Clare & Sian for organising it all, really have given me a life full of love and I hope they stay in my life for all my years. 

With thanks to:
HenBox for their amazing decorations and super fun games.
Crown and Glory for my gorgeous Friday night crown
Oh Squirrel for the stunning sash- The girls did GOOD on this, something I was totally obsessing over and my goodness I'm in love,  I want to wear it everyday. 
...and lastly to Clare & Sian, my to very best friends that I am thrilled to call my Bridesmaids and couldn't do this whole wedding-malarkey without

  10. Aww. I have to admit (*whispers*) that I hate hen parties, but this looks so far from the tackiness that I'd totally get on board with something like this.

  18. Aww it looks like you had an aiming time! Totally perfect! Mine was a bit different, Im not a drinker or party girl either, so we went rock climbing then a pole dance class then a little night out in a pub, in fancy dress, although my 2 big girl bridesmaids booked a stripper!! I will get them back for it when I get to organise their hen parties! lol!
