You’re probably quite close to your bridesmaids, right? Well, how about stripping off and getting even closer on your hen party night…

It’s not quite as sordid as it sounds, but this new hen party idea is a little bit saucier than a spa day with your best friends.

American Photographer Catherine Leonard has launched a new hen party trend that may start sweeping the nation, depending on how comfortable you are with dressing down to your underwear and posing with your bridesmaids.

The inventive idea involves a group of hens posing together for professional photographs either nude or semi-nude, to celebrate their close friendship and the female form.

Catherine Leonard explained that the concept emerged from the increasingly popular boudoir photography sessions that brides-to-be would book as a present for their husbands.

She said: “A lot of girls would bring along a friend for moral support, so then we thought, “Hey, wouldn’t it be fun if it was a whole group of people?”. They bring wine and food and turn it into a real celebration.”

Sessions cost around £300, including hair and make-up and can be shot at the photographer’s New York studio or on location.
