This is beautiful, Alia! I LOVE henna too. Was there any reason why the bride got it? Or was it specificially for this photoshoot? Either way, the contrast with the white and the whole armonic, soft atmosphere works just perfect.

Kiwi is correctomundo!
This was actually for a Muslim wedding, but it falls along the same traditional henna guidelines for weddings.

Men don't get it because it's almost always strictly for the bride.

Oh wow I love different cultures when it comes about marriage and things like that, haha. The henna design is something the bride comes up with or how does it work? It just looks great. Does it have any meaning? Too many questions oops

I know it's all so interesting!
And so special :blush:

No, the henna is usually done by a proffesional henna artist.
OR, if they have someone who's just really good at henna. (especially in countries, for example, like India and Pakistan, where woman do Henna art all the time)

I'm sure there's a different meaning for the Hindu culture, but for Muslim's it's just an adornment.  It's like jewelry at a wedding!

I love questions heh :D

Would it be too weird travelling there for tourism and coming back to my country with all my body painted in beautiful henna? Too much probably lmao Does the bride have to keep the henna during the ceremony?

Travel to India or Pakistan?
YES LOL
YOU'RE A MAN DOE..

Henna does not come off once it's on.
It's like a temporary tattoo.
The plant it's made out of is mushed into this red pulp, then applied with a piping bag-esque sort of applicator.
After the design is applied, you let it dry, then peel off the rest of the dry pulp.
Then if the Henna is pure quality henna, it'll stay for about 3 months give or take. (:

LOL oh well a man can always dream xoxo
I didn't know that about henna. I wouldn't complain if it was permanent though, the design is just stunning!

I mean if you paid them, I don't see why they wouldn't do it.. but it is a really awko request :lol:
Yup! 

I think what adds to the charm of henna is it's permanence.  It doesn't stay with you like a tattoo, but it lasts for quite a while ^o^

Getting henna is a tradition in Hindu weddings. ^^ 
My mom wore henna when she got married.
