Classy Clonakilty Hen Party

Vintage Hen Party Sash

We absolutely LOVE this hen party and are so happy that the girls decided to share it with us.

 

What we love the most, is the sheer simplicity and sophisticated flare. It was held in the bride to be’s hometown of Clonakilty in County Cork which ensured there was zero fuss with transporting all the hen party guests to the back end of nowhere. It was extremely laid back, personalised and we are such suckers for the little detail. A beautiful Irish town, a cosy wine bar, brass bands, summer ambiance, stylish accessories and lots of hen party fun.

 

How fabulous does Ciara look in our vintage hen party sash?! We love it with this gorgeous dress. See ladies, hen parties can be classy!

 

Location
Clonakilty Co.Cork

 

The Venue
A room upstairs at a beautiful wine bar called Aris. It was the old time fare that day so it was fitting to the vintage and bohemian hen party theme. Just outside the square where the wine bar is situated was the battle of brass bands which added to the overall atmosphere playing until after 10 o clock.

 

Activities
A fabulous American caricaturist based in Limerick, Mark Heng joined them for two hours of entertainment. The girls loved this and found this unique experience really enjoyable. It was especially enjoyed by the pregnant hens!
