An amazing Indian wedding Henna evening
Anishka and Kesh’s Mehendi and Sangeet at the Great Barn, Winston Churchill Theatre at Ruislip
What a night to remember! The evening was full of colour, vibrancy, and entertainment. I had a wonderful time and more importantly, Anishka and Kesh did.
There was plenty of subject matter for me to photograph, a real feast for the eyes. The only problem I had was trying to be more selective!
However, it could have been so different as I was nearly late! I always give myself more than enough time to turn up to any events, so if anything goes wrong I have time in hand. To make my way to the Great barn in Ruislip I had to drive right across London. The traffic was horrendous and I was running out of time! My girlfriend Dawn was driving and we were within a mile of the venue when we hit more solid traffic we weren’t going anywhere. In the end, had to run the last mile with all my camera bags. I arrived at the venue dripping with sweat. It took me a good 10 minutes to recover. Importantly I’d arrived just in the nick of time to record all the evening’s events.
The atmosphere at the Mehendi was electric. So beautiful to see Anishka and all her friends and family painting the Henna on their hands, arm and feet. Lots of delicious Indian food and of course the drinks were flowing. Later in the evening Anishka and Kesh’s family and friends put on a magnificent show. Lots of vibrant dancing and funny sketches.
