Our Celebrity Hen this month is the gorgeous Gorgi Coghlan. Currently hosting Network Ten’s brand new morning program, The Circle, Gorgi’s background in news, current affairs, entertainment and singing make her one of our most recognized faces! Gorgi married her husband Simon Coghlan in a romantic ceremony in October 2009.


1. Were you the hen or the organizer/bridesmaid or both?

The blushing bride to be.

2. When was the hen’s night?

Two weeks before I was married – I needed as much time as possible to get over the night!

3. Did your hen’s night go for the whole weekend or just the night?

The whole weekend.

4. What sort of activities were involved?

My wonderful girlfriends hired a fantastic house in Lorne on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. The Friday night was a dedicated ‘pizza and vino’ session in our PJs. We spent the night catching up on what was happening in all of our lives and laughing. 

The next morning we travelled to a beautiful winery for lunch. My girlfriends had planned several ‘embarrassing’ games - they made me wear an 80’s wedding dress for the day and I was banned from mentioned my ‘buck’s’ name.

Following lunch we boarded a bus and did a classy but hilarious hotel crawl along the Great Ocean Road back to Lorne. 

The Saturday night we met up with my ‘buck’ and the boys and all had a great party together at the house. It was the best of both worlds because we were able to enjoy time with our friends but the big group party at the end was a highlight too.

5.  Was there a theme, and how did you incorporate that theme (ie. In the food, the games, the dress code, etc)?

No theme, however my bridesmaids decided to put me in an 80s inspired, puff sleeved wedding frock that made me look hideous.

6. Who was the star of the night?

The taffeta sleeves of my 80s wedding dress.

7. Any funny stories you can share from the night?

Apparently I walked down the aisle of the bus singing ‘My baby takes the morning train’

8. Did your bridesmaids make you do anything you didn’t want to do, or were there some strict rules in place!

My bridesmaids had devised some very clever and harmless games that involved me answering quirky questions about my ‘buck’. We also had a ‘drinking mat’  - if any part of your feet appeared on the mat at any stage on the night you had to finish your drink…we took our drinking mats to all of the hotels we visited and they were a hit!  My girlfriends knew that I didn’t want to do anything inappropriate or tacky, so it all just good, clean fun.

9. If you were organizing another hen’s night or weekend (or having yours again!), what would you do the same, and what would you do differently?

I’d do it all again exactly the way my wonderful girlfriends’ planned it. Having a whole weekend away is great and I’d definitely recommend having a ‘low key’ night on the Friday night so that you feel that you can spend some quality time with your friends.

10.  How would you describe your hen’s night in just three words?

Classy but corrupt!

11.  Any final advice for a girl planning a hen’s party?

Make sure you put boundaries in place if you don’t want things to get out of hand. I wanted my mum and future mother-in-law to really enjoy the lunch too, and they had a wonderful time due to the appropriate nature of the games and activities. You don’t have to sink to ‘low hen’s day levels’ to have fun! Make it classy and make sure you have well organized friends/bridesmaids to keep the day fun and light.
