Marquee Mehndi Party: Babber

I love the way that you can put up a marquee and voila! You instantly have another room – you would never guess this marquee was put up in the back garden of Babber’s parents house. From a photography point of view, they are also perfect for pictures as the white walls and ceiling maximise and reflect the light making it easier to create lots of bright and airy photographs, which always a good thing in my book! Here are a few highlight’s from Babber’s mehndi.

Babber’s sister was on hand to help with preparations before guests arrived.

Each table had a different colour theme… Babber’s sister decorated the candles herself with mehndi.

Even though the mehndi ceremony took place in a marquee in Babber’s parent’s back garden, Babber’s Mum made sure the front garden also looked bright and cheerful for when guests arrived. She did this by adding these really cool oversized flowers into the hedge that was at the front of her house for a pop of colour. I want some!
