Rockabilly 1950s Style Hen Party

With the Queen's Jubilee taking place this weekend, I think it only fitting to share with you a hen party that will take you back to the good times and fashion of the 1950s.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Gwenda's hen party. Gwenda is the owner and director at The Vintage Floral Design Company and a 1950s girl at heart. You may remember she designed the flowers I used in the Titanic Inspired shoot back in April.

Gwenda and her new husband Drew - they tied the knot yesterday, had a rockabilly themed wedding so Gwenda wanted to expand on this for her hen party whilst having a fab day out with her favourite ladies.

Never someone to do things by halves, Gwenda got in touch with some of her contacts within the wedding industry to help her style the hen party in the 1950s style she had envisioned. She also wanted it to be a day of pampering for her friends while dressing up and having a ball.

They started the afternoon at Drink Shop & Do with a champagne afternoon tea where most of the hens were primped and made up by Dolly and Rhonda while some cupcake decorating took place for the others, and finished the night off at the South London Pacific Tiki Cocktail Bar.

It was hard to resist putting the girls through their modelling paces as they exuded 50s chic with modern day attitude.

Gwenda, glad you and the girls had a great time and thank you for letting me be a part of it. Wishing you and Drew all the best as you start your new lives together.
