On Friday evening, the bride's hands were decorated by an artist, using paste made from the henna plant. The paste was removed on Saturday, revealing the fine red pattern left beneath. Tradition has it that the darker the henna, the deeper the love. The Nikah, or religious Muslim ceremony, took place this afternoon, and I was honored to be entrusted to capture images from the event. I've just begun to process the gallery, but this image is already my favorite. View attachment 87081 More to come on this thread.
