Today we’re bringing you something a little bit different; an epic Brighton hen weekend. For any of you thinking of pubbing it, clubbing it or afternoon tea-ing it for your hen weekend then you can’t go far wrong with a Brighton hen do!
These lovely gals threw in a speedboat ride (the ultimate hangover cure), some vintage hair do’s, a fireman’s lift, and some tasty Face Cakes too! Oh yes!
Over to Devon based bride-to-be, Lou, who came all the way from Exeter with her best girls, to have her fun-filled hen weekend here in sunny Brighton, as photographed by the lovely Gemma from Taylor Wolf Photography:
“I live in Devon and work as a teacher in a school for the blind. As well as planning our wedding, me and Shawn are also in the process of moving down to Cornwall, we’re quitting our jobs and opening a B&B so there’s a lot going on at the moment!
I met Shawn when I was 18 and started uni. Although we didn’t know each other well, I saw him around over the years. It wasn’t until we moved in as flatmates when I was 21 we finally got together. We’ve been together for 13 years now.
I actually thought he was joking when he proposed, after 13 years you don’t expect it! We had gone down to Cornwall for the weekend and were walking down to check the surf on a beautiful beach when he dropped to one knee! He’d been planning it for ages and my best friend (who’s a jeweller) had made the ring, we had 2 nights booked in a hotel in St Ives, restaurants booked, new outfits bought…. he definitely outdid himself on this one!
I chose Brighton for my hen weekend because I went to Brighton uni and lived there for 7 years in the end. I love Brighton and have such fond memories of the place I knew that was where I should have the hen.
