A multicultural wedding in a museum

A gorgeous Indian bride, a dashing Scotsman, a museum, art, culture and lots of merrymaking – that’s what this multi-cultural wedding is made of.  Bride and groom Sumanta and Stuart chose to hold their wedding ceremony (and reception) at The FUEL House, an art gallery in Philadelphia. What a great idea – who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by beauty on their big day! I love the unexpectedness of the venue.

I came to know about this lovely union courtesy of Michael Duarte of Michael Kent Photography. He also told me that the bride, Sumanta, designed and made her own wedding dress (pictured above)! I think it turned out really well, don’t you think?

The beautiful bride wore a traditional Indian sari for the ceremony and so did her bridal party (below).

The groom and his men in traditional Indian wedding garb.

A great overhead shot of the ceremony.

I absolutely love this shot! I feel that it tells a story. We even see part of a lovely painting of birds in the background which contributes to the feeling that a new life is about to take flight.

The bride & groom changed into formal wear, Scottish style this time, for the reception.

Another great shot inside the gallery.

Congratulations Stuart and Sumanta! Thank you too Michael for sharing their beautiful wedding with Poptastic Bride and our readers.

  1. Thanks for posting this lovely wedding – I was in the wedding party and actually officiated the civil ceremony. Just an FYI – the groom’s name is Stuart, not Scott.

  2. Thank you for stopping by MV, it was a lovely wedding indeed! 🙂 I’ve already corrected the mistake, my apologies.

  3. A unique wedding for me. For the first time I heard the multicultural wedding. Excellent photos. I like all the stuff especially the creation of that wedding costume. The art I see it there clearly. Congratulations!. More Power
