I’ve photographed Mehendi celebrations the world over – from Toronto to Delhi, London to Perth… No matter where in the world they happen I’m always blown away by the skill and intricacies of that art form we call Henna.
Sian grew up in Mt. Pleasant, a gorgeous suburb on the banks of the Canning River in the Perth metro area. As you drive through the streets you can sense the strength of community – something so evident in Sian’s Mehendi party / Hen’s night!
This little shin dig happened at the Mt Pleasant Bowling Club. As you can see, it was an intimate affair of friends and family surrounding Sian as she was prepared for her wedding to be held only two days later.
Throughout the evening Sian was laughing with friends – especially at the face that she was unable to use her hands for almost 4 hours… It did make for some humourous moments like this on 🙂
