The Mehendi Art of Hindu Weddings

Mehendi or Henna is a paste produced from a flowering plant that has a rich history dated back in the 700AD that is traditionally used as a form of decoration for Hindu brides and religious festivals. In modern Indian weddings, a Mehendi artist is hired to draw bridal mehendi art designs typically a day before the wedding. The "Mehendi night" is similar to the Western hen night where the bride's friends will visit her while she gets the bridal mehendi art on. 

Bridal mehendi art designs are very beautiful and intricate. Sometimes, the groom's initials are even hidden within the mehendi pattern! In fact, the Mehendi art is one of the most photographed details of a Hindu wedding. We have compiled tips onthe things you should know about photographing a Hindu Wedding.
