israeli henna party

Maybe, just maybe, these images can show the amount of joy and excitement this celebration had to offer? After doing their engagement session the previous week, next on the agenda was their Henna party. Henna parties in Israel usually take place around a week before a wedding with a much smaller gathering. A special paste is blended from the Henna plant and water, and then smudged on the palms of the bride and groom to be and their guests (including me!). This is a very old tradition dating back hundreds of years, and the purpose is to bless the couple with good health, fertility, wisdom, and security. Well, everybody was thrilled to celebrate with Cindy and Nati, and the dancing only stopped for a short amount of time to allow Nati’s grandma to perform her duties:) Thanks for having me guys!
