Emma's Retro style hen party in Galway!

Orla organized this Retro Hen party surprise for her pal Emma at the carlton hotel suites in Galway recently.
Lucky for us the weather was holding fast for some outdoor shots as we were dying to show off the beautiful dresses and brollies in their full glory!
For starters the amazing makeup team Theresa Danaher and Sandra Gillen made the girls over in style - liquid liner,  red lipstick and fake lashes were the order of the day. The girls all came in their own ensembles and I could'nt help but gasp once I saw Emma become a doppelganger for 'Bernie Dexter' one of our favourite  internet retro lingerie models! As each girl came in she was transformed into a cute bombshell - The lads would not be able to resist a flutter of these lashes ....!
Once the makeup was complete we set up some studio style shots in the bedroom . We are used to working in challenging spaces so it was handy that the suites had some interconnecting rooms - perfect for the rest of the gang to admire the makeovers and have a glass of bubbly while waiting.
Once our one- to- one shots were over we did some tongue in cheek bedroom ones complete with retro phones, hairbrushes and mirrors from our dress up box  and also some outdoor shots on the deck.
The stunning retro bride to be!

The girls could not have been nicer and totally got into their alter egos for the cheesecake posing (not easy if you have never done it!! ) Well done ladies you totally pulled it off ! x
