Hindu Mehndi and Sangeet Photography in Dubai
Nimesh and Rakhee's destination Mehndi and Sangeet in Dubai took place in the most amazing desert location and included camels, 4x4 jeeps and the most incredible dancing!
After an unbelievable first few days in Dubai that included a stunning destination pre wedding photography shoot in the Dubai Desert, there was no chance that this wedding was going to drop the pace and the evening before the main Indian wedding at the Palm Sofitel in Dubai was just as adventurous and guests met in the private library of the Sofitel Hotel and Resort in Palm Jumeirah before being whisked away by private transportation into the Dubai desert.
We watched an amazing sunset as we travelled further out of the city centre and gradually the city lights disappeared into the distance and the landscape became more open as we arrived close to our desert location. As the last remains of the sun disappeared below the horizon we were transferred into 4x4 jeeps for the last stage of the journey that took us deep into the desert dunes before arriving at our own private bedouin camp.
Guests were greeted in true Arabian style and the setup for the camp was incredible. This included Bedouin men serving Arabic coffee and dates, camel rides, sheesha-smoking and henna painting. As the bridal mehndi began, guests were treated to a whole evening of entertainment in the desert which included a Tanura dance show, belly dancing and mehfil singing. This was followed by the sangeet and some incredible performances by family members before DJ H and Kudos Music took over and the party really got started.
The whole event was put together by the talented Karishma Manwani and was executed perfectly. Here are a few images from this Dubai desert destination Mehndi and Sangeet in the United Arab Emirates. You can check out the civil wedding ceremony at Newland Manor here.
