Always wanted to be a mermaid?

What better opportunity than your hen do or special birthday?!

Gather your pod for your celebration and we will bring mermaid activities to you…  siren perfection!

All parties include:

  • a professional photoshoot of each person in a mermaid tail
  • use of all our props and costumes (including tails, of course!)
  • 1-3 photographs per person, available to download in high resolution from a private gallery
  • free rein in our mermaid makeup box
  • cake! (gluten free also available)
  • a professional photographer who is also a mermaid herself – double the experience and lots of good costume tips!
  • a mermaid assistant/stylist to help you craft, all get in and out of your tails, and look your best in the photos

You’ll need:

  • at least 10 aspiring mermaids (we can cater for fewer but a minimum charge applies – and you can of course book for hen parties, birthdays or just because!)
  • a venue for us to shoot in – we can set up almost anywhere, but need a certain amount of space for groups – we can advise further on this by email and can liaise with your venue if needed
  • bring your own bubbly – sadly we’re not licensed to provide alcohol but you can bring your own to go with the cake!
  • to let us know dress sizes well in advance of the event so we can ensure we have tails to fit you all

Party costs & add ons

Mermaid photoshoot parties, including your photographs, are from just £35 per person with a 10 person minimum.

This includes travel within Colchester postcodes (CO); travel elsewhere is completely doable – drop me a line and I’ll send a quote over!

Add Making Mermaid Tiaras for just £12 per person

Additional venue requirements: table space for all partygoers & plugs for the glue guns – we’ll bring table covers for the mess!
Cost: £12 per person
Add making the Clamshell Bras of your Dreams for just £18 per person

If you really want to go all out on the mermaid theme, a clamshell bra is a must! We bring ethically sourced shells, waterproof glue and all kinds of sparkles and adornments to help you make the most beautiful mermaid tops 🙂

Additional time required: 1 -2  hours (ish)
Additional venue requirements: table space & plugs for glue guns – we’ll bring table covers for the mess!
Additional things you need to bring: each mermaid-to-be needs to bring a bra or bikini top (tankinis/vests also fine, but a bit of structure helps to hold the shells in place) to turn into the perfect clamshell bra 🙂

Add gift bags for the guest of honour, or for all guests

Ahh, goody bags – not just for kids!

You can add on party bags full of mermaid surprises for all your guests, or as a surprise for the birthday girl or bride to be.  Sample contents include jewellery, mermaid or unicorn makeup brushes, mermaid bubbles, incense, enamel pins, biodegradable glitter – you name it, we can probably include it!

We’ll work with your budget per person, so these can be as economical or as budget-blowing as you like!

Add a mermaid tail for the bride to be or birthday girl

If the guest of honour is a mermaid fanatic, what better present than a swimmable mermaid tail of her very own?

Fin Fun tails are high quality and among the safest on the market, fully swimmable and also fully washable. Adult sizes are just £120, a £25 saving on the usual price.

You can choose colour & size and I’ll make sure it’s here in time for the event!
