A custom email I am sending is sending with the Luma theme, despite my website having a custom theme applied (which works for checkout emails, yet not for my custom mails).

Why is this happening and how can it be fixed?

    $transport = $this->_transportBuilder
            'area' =>  \Magento\Framework\App\Area::AREA_FRONTEND,
            'store' => \Magento\Store\Model\Store::DEFAULT_STORE_ID,
        ->setTemplateVars(['data' => $data])


Found the answer, my code was using the default store and I had used the code from an example just to find the most clean way of sending a transactional email... the email renderer loads the theme from the store id provided, default is 0 and my store with the theme is 1.

My theme is not applied globally because of a bug, so people with it set to global making this mistake may not see any issues.
