One of the wedding traditions in Morocco is a henna party before the wedding. Henna symbolizes good luck and we’ve hardly seen any Moroccan brides without henna on their wedding day.
Sabile and Timothee held a henna party the night before their wedding. Close friends and family joined them for the celebration which included the presentation of the couple on Amarias, traditional musicians and henna for all of the ladies present.
Following the henna ceremony, everyone enjoyed a meal together prepared by Sabile’s mother. With so many guests traveling in from out of country, it was a wonderful opportunity for the bride and groom to connect with their guests outside of the wedding day.
We love photographing henna parties and they give us a great opportunity to get to know the family before the wedding day.
Here are some of our favorite moments from their henna party.
