Niroshi and Lucky Auckland Indian Mehendi Night

Prior to the big day, traditional Indian weddings entail Henna tattooing for the ladies. Legend tells the brightness of the henna directly corresponds to how much your spouse loves you. Bridal henna tattoo can take up to 5 hours. Traditionally the tattoo artist write the new husbands name within the elaborate design for the groom to find as a fun game for the couple (see if you can spot Lucky's name in the Henna images). The designs are to enhance beauty of bride on this special occasion. Once the bride's design is complete, the rest of the ladies join the fun and get their own design. It is an evening full of food, henna, music, beer, and wine!
