When you book your bridal mehndi, we sit together discussing and bonding about the details of your wedding, if there’s a particular motif you’re looking to incorporate, if you have any specific ideas. I will then create something freehand after our discussion that will be personal to you and your taste. As an artist I love it when the bride gives me complete freedom to create something special for her. You can choose to have a bespoke design made prior to the henna application where a phone consultation takes place and I will draft a specific design that is approved by you.
To allow for the best henna stain to develop, I usually suggest booking in two or three days before your wedding. The henna used is prepared fresh for each client using only natural, quality ingredients to ensure the darkest stain results that can last anywhere up to two weeks.
Depending on the design style and coverage of the henna, it can take several hours to apply, during which time you’ll be able to relax. You’ll be sitting still for possibly the first time in weeks during the run up to your wedding so it’s the perfect time to reflect on things, feel comfortable and have a bit of fun too. You won’t go hungry during the sitting, as you can get your nearest and dearest to feed you, it’s all part of the experience!
One your henna application is complete, you’ll be fully prepped on the aftercare for your henna so it can look its best on your wedding day.
Sitting with a bride to create her bridal mehndi is always special. I love taking some time to understand your love story, your wedding theme or take a peak at your bridal outfit so I can include some of these elements into your bridal henna that will adorn you on your big day. The way I see it is that the henna may be temporary, but the memories from it (and the photos of it) last forever.
Sometimes it’s just the bride and I during the henna application on our own. Often though, other family members are around to share their stories and it’s those moments that make the experience extra special. We’ve found it can be quite an emotional time for mothers, who often shed a tear when they see all the stories incorporated into the finished result!
It is a real privilege to be part of the build up to your special day and I hope you remember it forever.
I love sharing the pictures we receive from so many of our happy brides! Check out our gallery page HERE!
I have created so many different bridal henna designs over the years that include the bride’s wedding theme, the culture, favourite places, landscapes, animals, organic floral design, portrait figures, dieties and more. I love using traditional intricate designs against bold element that create a very eye-catching modern look.
Ultimately it all comes down to the skills used and the quality of the henna. I’m proud to say that I prepare all of my own henna paste and cones, so you can be assured that you’ll get the best results for your bridal mehndi.
