Mehndi Ceremony

A few weeks ago, I helped shoot an Indian wedding. Though this wasn’t my first time at an Indian Hindu ceremony – I shot a baby shower last year – it was my first Indian wedding.

Wow. Is pretty much all I have to say.

It was amazing, to say the least. The colors alone were absolutely breathtaking, so vibrant and lively. And I’ve always been interested in Hindu and Indian culture, so it was neat for me to shoot a wedding that took place at a Hindu temple.

This was day one of the wedding: the bride’s mehndi ceremony. I’ve also always been a big fan of mehndi/henna, and these designs were especially intricate.

Day two, featuring the pre-wedding ceremony, coming soon.:)
