Usma’s Mehndi Party at the Bradford Hotel
Bradford Hotel Mehndi Party Photography. I’m a really lucky photographer to capture so many different cultures, traditions and celebrations. Variety is the spice of life, and throwing myself and my camera into the unknown is one of my favourite things to do in this job. Usma’s Bradford Hotel Mendhi party was a whirlwind of colour, craziness and amazement. In the centre of Bradford, Usma’s family and friends from all across the city came to join the pre-wedding celebrations of the traditional Islamic Mendhi party.
Usma actually tied the knot a couple of weeks after the party, and she really wanted me there to capture the celebrations, but unfortunately I was already booked. Luckily I was free for the Mehndi party! Traditionally the mehndhi party is a final celebration before the wedding days, without the groom. There’s lots of grand entrances, gift giving, group shots, a feast of food, and proper Asian dancing (my favourite part to photograph!).
I was also excited to be reunited with one of my star 2018 brides, Fal who’s wedding you must view here at Regency Hall! Usma saw me work me work my socks off at Fal’s wedding and the rest was history. It was great to see all their family again, and catch up with them all. Hopefully I’ll be seeing you all again at another wedding!
It was an amazing evening, I hope you all love the pics and congratulations Usma & Sal!
