Whatsoever Is Lovely – A Handful Of Marigolds

All hands on the celebration deck!

This January, the wedding of my cousin was the highlight event for my whole family.

Several events took placed in the span of 10 days, which were wholesomely enjoyed by everyone.

One such event was Mehndi, in which my cousin (the bride) received henna on her palms, back of hands and feet from elder ladies of the family, along with the rest of the cousin group.

That cousin group wore the traditional marigold bangles on their hands that day, so this hands-in pose was made:

The bride’s hands weren’t called over because they were busy elsewhere πŸ™‚

      Hello, Kate!
      I’m doing well and wishing the same for you. The wedding dresses in Pakistani weddings have to be bright. But not as much as bride’s πŸ™‚
