Amina's Mendhi Party

August 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Recently I was asked to photograph the wedding of Amina and Baz. I love any opportunity to get to know a couple before their big day so I jumped at the chance to photograph Amina's Mendhi (henna) party on Wednesday evening.

Her sister Shabana had decorated the house beautifully in pinks and purples as well as creating an amazing fruit platter (which we all enjoyed eating later).

Amina was dressed in an elegant sari, which matched her bouquet of flowers. It wasn't long before her friends arrived and the party was in full swing. Sabreena, the henna artist had already started on Amina's arms. It was truly amazing to watch her work free hand and see the patterns begin to take form.
