“Kina” (Henna) and Wedding

Saturday night on a Tarsus street Serkan’s cousin’s “kina” (‘henna’). Similar to a wedding with music and dancing, the centrepoint of ‘kina’ is the bride-to-be and groom-to-be, along with the closest friends and family (particularly the bride’s female friends, I believe) staining their hands with henna. On Sunday afternoon, the wedding was held in a Mersin wedding salon.

This was my first “kina” and I have plenty of photos from both events. When I get the time I will upload some pictures and write more.
