Exhibition Catalogue

This exhibition provides 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.

Social anthropology is the comparative study of human cultures and behaviour - including family forms, ritual, religion, politics, and economics - in their social context. The study of the variations between different cultures, and the common humanity which underlies them, is at its heart.
