I was sitting in a cafe in Oundle with Sara and Andy after their engagement shoot last August and we were chatting away about their wedding when I asked what they were doing for their stag and hen parties. ‘Oh we’re not going to bother with all that,’ Sara said. I was amazed as, having gotten to know them over the months, they are the most flamboyant and eccentric of my couples and love to dress up and party. The conversation carried on in another direction with Sara mentioning that during a trip to London she’d seen an Octopus costume in a shop announcing window, rather dreamily, ‘I’ve always wanted to be an Octopus!’ And so the story began……

Here is their ‘we’re not going to bother with all that,’ sea creature themed stag and hen party on Brancaster beach in Norfolk at the end of November with Princess Octavia the Octopus and Sven the Avenger Squid. It was an amazing day; colourful, fun and laughter filled, freezing cold but sunny with a glorious BLUE sky that went on forever. There were sea sirens, seals, casualties from the Titanic, jelly fish, mermaids, a giant cod, lobsters. crabs, penguins……The locals must have wondered what the hell was happening when 50 sea creatures descended upon their beach. It was bloody brilliant, and I got to be a sarcastic fringehead for the day. The best name for a fish ever.
