All us ladies are looking even more adorned this morning after a mammoth mehndi session last night. There were two mehndi artists, one of whom spent four hours on the artwork on the brides hands! Designs were chosen from an array of photos online and then copied with close scrutiny on the smartphone Hope you enjoy the photos.
First up is the bride’s pedicure – Newari style.
The end result of Nikita’s special design for her wedding day. It was worth the long hours, don’t you think? So intricate.
Here’s a slideshow of how Nikita’s beautiful designs came to be.
Designs from others attending the mehndi party.
The westerners didn’t do too badly either. Photo credit Cathy Stevenson.
It’s a cold but sunny morning this morning as we ready ourselves for the bride’s party at 4pm later today. Lots of visitors already arriving to the Kayastha home.
