I would like to share you another international wedding shoot I covered in Malaysia a little over two months ago.

This is the 1st day of a 2-day wedding event.

The first day was the maiyan ceremony. Sandeep and Ariane were being “prepared” for the wedding day. “Vatna” or scented powder (made of barley flour, turmeric and mustard oil) was applied on their body. It’s said to cleanse and purify the bride and groom. Also a way of their family and friends to show their “love” for them.

Mehndi followed, wherein henna tattoo was applied on Ariane’s girl friends’ hands and both her hands and feet. Henna is known to “de-stress”. Tradition says that the longer the color lasts, the more love the bride will get from her in-laws.

It was really a beautiful day and the culture of a punjabi sheikh wedding is really amazing.
