Dave’n’Saj part 1: mehndi party

8 September, 2009

Back in August, my old housemate Dave married Ax’s friend Saj, and Charlotte and I were invited to Saj’s mehndi party. I had no idea what to expect, except that henna tattoos were involved somehow.

I conclude that a mehndi party is a big pre-wedding party with food and dancing and cake and presents and, yes, henna tattoos for all the girls. It’s pretty awesome.

All done. (Feet too!)


Yay henna!


Later in the evening, when most of the designs had dried, the volume was turned up and a drum accompaniment got people dancing. Somewhere in there is Saj, somehow making dancing gracefully while wrapped in clingfilm* look like the most natural thing in the world. 😀

* to protect the henna, y’see
