Cluckey Hens, Seaside Stripes, Teacup Cocktails And Fifties Glamour

A weekend of fifties glamour, teacup cocktails and a cream tea on the beach ….seaside fun with a vintage twist to give our gorgeous friend  and bride to be Rosie, a send off she will hopefully never forget.

Brighton is renowned for their hen do parties – but we wanted to be a little unique with ours and there wasn’t a veil in sight – instead we introduced our own takes on a night of vintage glamour  – following on from a day of scones with dollops of clotted cream and lashings of champagne sipped from vintage teacups and saucers.

Get The Party Started.. Disco Balls On The Beach

Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – Seaside Stripes
