Exhibition | An anthropology of weddings: 5 places, 50 objects

What makes a wedding? Why do weddings matter?

An Anthropology of Weddings: 5 Places, 50 Objects

How does the stuff of weddings – the gifts, decorations, clothing, and symbols – communicate ideas about marriage in different cultures around the world?

This exhibition provided a glimpse into how weddings and marriage are celebrated in five different countries of the world – and also how they are changing – through photographs and objects that we have collected as part of a collaborative research project in Social Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh.
