Incredible Wedding Snap

The above picture says it all, what an incredible transformation.

People are going to say “what a journey”, I wouldn’t, these guys have been on more than a journey they changed their life, swapped fatty foods for fresh veg and fruit which may not sound like an exciting engagement but I expect it brought them closer together, literally.

To achieve such a goal together is a testament to their marriage – wow we’re soppy this morning!

We just think this is such an incredible story and it must be shared, and that is  what we have done, for more details on their incredible vow of looking for for the wedding snaps go here.

Man Cliff Jumps In Newquay The Wrong Way!

September 18th, 2014

Cliff Jumping / Coasteering in NewquayAccording to an article on the Get Surry website, Garrey Ashton whilst on a Stag Do to Newquay survived a 100 ft fall down a cliff, without serious injury.

Now we arrange Coasteering in Newquay in a safe environment as a popular Stag Do activity however he has taken it to a new level.

All jokes a-side, he was very lucky and this a warning to other stag parties celebrating in Newquay to only visit the cliffs whilst coasteering.

According to this article, Garry wasn’t messing around, he had just taken back to his hotel, a disabled member of the stag party and was walking back to the 20-strong stag group when he decided to take a slight detour and take a quick peek at the sea. He stepped over a 3ft fence and suddenly slipped on gravel and tumble 100 ft.

He woke up on the beach 4 hours later with the sea lapping at his feet and in total shock on what just happened. He managed to get to his feet and climb some old staircase leading out of the cove to find his mates, who put him straight into an ambulance for Truro hospital.

He told the Get Surrey reporter “It was only supposed to be a little trip to the beach, I just took a bit of a shortcut, anyone who knows me knows I’m a bit clumsy. I guess it was a typical Stag Do overall!”

Book Early for 2015

September 15th, 2014

Man Drinking Wine After Booking Stag DoBook early and avoid disappointment, it’s that old cliche again, however it does make a lot of sense especially when you are booking something as important as a hen or Stag Do.

So why do you need to book your hen or Stag Do early?

At the moment hotel managers, after a bumper year in 2014, will be sharpening their pencils and inflating their prices, so if you have 20 lads who have all said they will go on Dave’s Stag Do, book it now and get 2014 prices for a booking going in 2015.

Availability is also another factor which is completely in your favour when booking early. Another scenario is if you have 25 girls who all want to go to the Royal Ascot next year, Royal Ascot gets extremely busy and fitting 25 girls into one hotel can be a problem, booking early should and will, resolve this issue.

So to conclude booking your hen or Stag Do early will save you money and guarantee you availability… brilliant!!! Another useful tip to help you arrange the best Hen or Stag Weekend known to man / woman from DesignaVenture.

So get started head to our stag do section of our website or hen party section and book, book, book!

The Cavern Club Saved Hen Do

September 3rd, 2014

The Cavern Club, LiverpoolMelanie Hughes a hairdresser from Coventry thought she booked the perfect 1960′s themed hen night in Liverpool, finishing off at the Cavern Club to watch the Cavern Club Beatles perform.

According to the Liverpool Echo website, this Beatles fan arrived at her accommodation only to find that apparently she wasn’t booked in (not booked through DesignaVenture I hastily add).

So she spent the next 7 hours searching in vain for a hotel to stay in, as they were just about to abandon the hen party altogether and catch a train home from the famous Liverpool Lime Street station, an employee from the station heard her heartfelt story and managed to find them accommodation above a pub in St Helens.

Melanie and her hapless hens managed to make the second half of the Beatles tribute band at The Cavern Club with one of the hens telling a completely stranger about their ordeal.

This complete stranger was Bill Heckle, one of the Cavern Club directors who arranged free bubbly, t-shirts and pictures with the band!

I am sure if John Lennon was still around, he would of made a wicked song about this hen night!

Melanie and her husband Mike tied the not at a Beatles themed wedding on the 15th August, we at DesignaVenture would like to wish them all the best for the future.

A Holy Hen Party

August 19th, 2014

Chester CathedralMost hen parties take place in destinations of wild and raucous nights however in 2014 The Chester Cathedral hosts it’s first ever hen party in over 900 years.

According to the Chester First website, Hannah Lloyd has always wanted to climb the 216 steps up to the top of the Chester Cathedral and see for herself the stunning panoramic views of Chester.

It all came about when Hannah told her mate Anne Cody, she was getting married, now Anne knew Hannah wanted to climb the steps of the Cathedral and luckily she knew the Diocese of Chester.

So last Friday night Hannah Lloyd was the first ever hen to celebrate her hen party at Chester Cathedral on the strictest instructions that no alcohol was to be consumed on the tower tour, which is fair enough.

After the Cathedral tour she went into Chester for a few drinks, hen party business as usual then!

Hannah is set to marry Paul Jones on September 27th which she told reporters she was pretty sure he wasn’t going to celebrate his Stag Do in a church!
