We're never quote featured an Arabic wedding  on her before so here goes, Arabic wedding in Tanzania..

'These photos are from a wedding Akhid and Hennah,The second event was the Hennah. This is an important event for any Arabic wedding and it is held before the Akhid. Traditionally the bride is covered so that her to-be husband can only see her after the Akhid. There is a Hennah basket that is brought by the grooms family and danced to by all the women of the family, in celebration of this day.The Hennah comes to and end when the groom arrives. The adult females of both families dance with him and sit him down for a Hennah application, where he is rubbed Hennah throughout his face. Lastly, the grooms sisters dance and throw their hair at the groom before he leaves.' - ArtbyMaheen
