It's notoriously a time to really let your hair down surrounded by your closest friends: yes, hen and stag weekends have something of a reputation for debauchery and drunken antics. 

But Ronan Keating and Storm Uechtritz are definitely maintaining low-key celebrations in advance of their Monday nuptials in Scotland.

In fact, it is the former Boyzone singer's teenage children who have been tasked with organising the events. 

For Storm, that means getting the Eurostar from London to Paris with a dozen friends and family of varying ages. The group, who donned pink Storm's hen lanyards, were this morning all gifted with chic monogrammed Burberry scarves.

They also brought on board with them champagne or lemonade and brunch in wicker baskets from London's famed and oh-so posh Fortnum & Mason

In one Instagram snap, the bride-to-be was eager to thank her stepdaughter-in-waiting, Missy Keating, 14, for organising the particulars. Also visible in the same image is younger sis Ali Keating, nine.

Meanwhile, back in Ireland, Ronan's own bash was underway with thanks to Jack, his 16-year-old son. In an online post, the musician thanked his eldest child – as well as Storm – for pulling together the pre-wedding celebrations.

The accompanying snap also showed lines of brightly-coloured cooler pouches, each with a sticker naming the reciprocate, as well as a row of white gift bags. "The stage is set," the Dubliner said, playfully adding: "This could get messy."

Ronan, 38, popped the question to his 34-year-old Australian girlfriend of three years in April during a tropical trip to Thailand. "We've been together a few years now and knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

"I felt it was the right time," he said in a Hello! magazine interview announcing their intention to marry.

Mr Keating also helped design her ring: a stunning oval-shaped diamond set in a diamond-encrusted band.

His divorce to Yvonne Connolly, 41, whom he married in 1999, was finalised earlier this year following their 2011 split. 

Ronan's friend Brian McFadden had previously warned that the stag-do "won't be wild". He added in conversation with the Daily Star: "Ronan's stag do will be all red wine and cigars."

Following their lightning-quick engagement, Ronan and Storm will marry on Monday at the luxurious Archfield House estate and golf club in East Lothian. 

She has also been married once before – to finance chief Tim Iver.


Kerry Katona cannot catch a break! It looked like things were getting a little brighter for the former Atomic Kitten star after her engagement to George Kay, but it seems things are falling apart at the seams. The latest drama unfolded at her joint hen and stag do which begs the question, will there be a white wedding?

Niamh Geaney reports.



She already partied it up at her Hen weekend in Marbella last month, but Glenda Gilson said one final farewell to single life with a SECOND Hen party in Dublin last night!

The Xpose star was joined by a huge gang of friends in the capital, where they all enjoyed bubbly and giggles in Glenda’s home before heading to popular night spot House.

Glenda's party crew included Irish model Alison Canavan and TV3 stylist Courtney Smith. 

The TV presenter and model is set to marry her fiancé Rob MacNaughton next week in front of 200 guests at the Lodge at Doonbeg Co. Clare.

We hope you’d a fab night Glenda, and that there isn't too many sore heads today!

Frankie Sandford’s bandmates made sure she had the best possible send off by planning her a fabulous second hen do last night!

Fellow The Saturdays’ star Mollie King still can’t believe that her bestie is getting married to footballer Wayne Bridge later in July, and captioned her snaps from the night, “Frankie’s hen! Can’t believe she’s getting MARRIED.”

The girls partied into the night at the plush Henley Royal Regatta, and even sipped (licked) champagne ice pops at one point.


Frankie had already partied up a storm on her first hen do in Ibiza, but who can blame a girl for wanting another girls-only bash?

Party gal Vanessa even posed with an entire bottle of vodka. Yikes! She also found an gatecrasher who was catching forty winks near by, and posed for a snap with him, adding, “Don’t fall asleep next to a hen party….”

We couldn’t see snaps of our very own Una Healy with the girls, but on July 1st she tweeted, “Tonsilitis.”

Ouch, hope you’re feeling better soon Una!
