When only the best will do.

Wanderlust and Mehndi:

Everyone could not stop raving about you and your beautiful work and I still have some colour on my hands and the henna tan that makes me looks like I’m wearing lace gloves. I love it!

Darcy first got the idea to start offering henna in tropical locations while traveling in Costa Rica. Doing henna for people was a great way to meet locals and practice her Spanish, as well as to meet other travelers. Soon, she noticed Indian destination weddings happening in these beautiful places, often with no henna, or worse, with toxic black henna or chemical cones. She thought, every bride deserves beautiful, safe henna for her wedding, no matter where in the world it is.  Darcy decided to start offering her services globally.  Darcy's award winning art has been featured in Indian Weddings Magazine, Brides Magazine, South Asian Bride Magazine, Buzzfeed and Elite Daily. She has over 20 years of travel experience and over a decade as a bridal mehndi expert in Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and multi-faith weddings.
