Spring and hen party season has sprung in Somerset and Devon

It feels like Spring has finally sprung, and with it comes the arrival of hen party season.

The number of enquiries I’ve been getting this year is down on last year for some reason, but I’ve had some lovely hen parties already this year.

There has unfortunately alos been a few clashes as well – especially for the Saturday of the Coronation. I had to turn down two booking requests on that they because of the timings and the geographical and logistical barriers i.e. they were too far from each other to fit in.

There has been a geographical thread in theparties that I’ve done recently, as they’ve been in the south west of England. The first, on Coronation day, was in a stunning house a few miles north east of Yeovil. If the weather hadn’t been crap on that day, I’m sure we could have done the whole session outside, but the house was mansion-like so it was a pleasure to be in the comfort of the luxurious lounge.

Last weekend, the geographic locations of two groups worked very well. The first group of hens were located near Taunton and they luckily wanted their class to start late morning.  The group was a joy from start to finish. The Bride to Be  was a fine art graduate who threw herself into the drawing from the start. Her laugh and smile on her face was infectious when she and her friend posed with me and her friend was voluntarily placed in quite an intersting position!

After leaving the house in rural Taunton, I had over an hour’s driving cross country through the heart of Exmoor National Park. It’s a windy road but beautiful countryside. nI then finally arrived at my destination for my second group, which is in my opinion the jewel of north Devon, Saunton Sands.



The group of ladies were stsying in an apartment block adjacent to the main hotel. They had sliding doors opening out to one of the most stunning viewsthat  you can imagine. (As a little aside, thisPhotograph of a model duo pose with Hen was the beach featured in the video to the Robbie Williams song ‘Angels’.) I was told in adanve ofthe party that the Bride to Be and her Fiance had both experienced grief in recent years, so I felt very honoured to be asked to play a very small part for her hen party. I really wished we could have done the drawing outside as it was such a glorious day, but I don’t think the hotel would have welcomed a naked man posing outside.

The duo pose with the Bride to Be was quite memorable as she decided she would do a yoga pose which I’d not heard of before, The Happy Baby Pose. She did well to maintain the pose,  while I had the easy position of standing above her.  While we did this pose, one of the group said something that I’ve not heard in any group previously. She said that she was seriously turned on seeing our pose. It would be nice to know if more ladies get a little bit excited when I pose naked, but it’s not for me to ask – I’ll just quietly hope that I’m hitting the right spot with some of them!

I’m back to Somerset in a couple of weeks which is a repeat booking grom the orgamiser – her original booking had been delayed twice because of COVID but eventually happened last year in Hampshire. I’m looking forward to seeing her again.

If you’re looking for a creative, arty but yet a little bit cheeky for a hen party in June or July, I’ve still got good availability at present  during the next couple of months.
