Prospective grooms usually go out on a stag night with the lads
before waking up in a state of horror on a boat heading for Finland.
Not Cohn and Wolfe account director Neil Flash who, at the tender age of
25, was married last Sunday.
All his work colleagues in the agency’s healthcare division being
female, the work night out had a twist.
Instead of a stag night, Flash went out on a hen night with the agency’s
20-strong healthcare team under the leadership of Cohn and Wolfe
director Angie Searle. ’The fact that he works with 19 girls meant he
really deserved a hen night to remember,’ she says.
The team went to an undisclosed venue in Soho’s Golden Square, where a
mock Blind Date was staged. A man from the agency’s corporate division
dressed as Cilla, while a female member of the party asked three other
male work colleagues questions.
Overseeing this well-staged event was C&W managing director Martin
Ellis, who says it was a truly outrageous night: ’It was a hen night
with a twist. He certainly won’t forget it.’
According to sources close to the event, several containers of baby oil
were sprayed over Flash. Later on, the motley crew was refused entry to
three night clubs.
I am further reliably informed that ending up on a ferry to Finland
after a stag night is nothing compared with a night out with Ellis.
