Aleeza and Colin live in Canada, and they organised their two day wedding from there. The first part was an amazing mendhi at the stunning One Marylebone in London. This was my first mendhi and I will never forget it, it was so colourful and vibrant – I can’t wait to photograph another!
Colin was walked in by his friends and family, with drummers ahead of him. He then remained seated, waiting for Aleeza to arrive, who was carried in on a colourful cart, surrounded by family and drummers. The women then sang songs while seated on cushions and everyone joined in clapping. Delicious food was served while mendhi was applied to the guests hands in stunning designs (including my own!). Then Aleeza’s brother and sister started the dancing, before the girls danced, then the boys. It was so great to see everyone getting involved. Then the rest of the guests took to the stage while the drummers played along with the music.
