    From a Mehndi I shot last night. Very colorful gathering! Also rather different than shooting a 'typical' wedding because of the cultural differences and customs you must respect. :smile:

  2. very nice shot, francis
    i'm sure it must be difficult to remember all the customs when shooting such a wedding
     
  3. The hand art is very interesting, not to mention the wonderful colors of the flowers and dress.

    Wow vibrant colors... I love it. Do you know what the Henna is for (Sorry for asking a stupid question...I feel I should know this, but I don't).

    It's something that can be done for any special occasion. It's only temporary. It can be done on both males and females, but for this particular occasion, it was only done to the bride. It's a shame I didn't get to see it being put on - it happened the day before - this Mehndi encompasses almost a full week!

    Beautiful colors; all those colors make a 'regular' wedding look a bit drab.

  18. Having grown up in India the colors all look so familiar--something missing in many western weddings! Nice job!

    Very well done.

    I don't think you would want to be there the night prior! It is generally a ladies only event where there is a lot of gossip going around and the usual lady talk!

    Yes, the colors were absolutely amazing! :smile: And this one was actually a Pakistanian ceremony.
