Qudsia & Yawar

This is a small selection of photographs taken at Qudsia and Yawar’s Mehndi party at Taj Palace in Oldham in March 2013. I eagerly anticipated this event as this was not only my first booking for 2013, but also the first Mehndi party which I have formally covered. Seeing the whole event from start to finish as intimately as I did was an honour and I thank Qudsia and Yawar’s families for involving me in an event steeped in such tradition and importance.

Congratulations Qudsia and Yawar!
