Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson
Pageantry and Pure Magic on day Andy made Fergie his Duchess. Do you remember what you were doing in 1986? Do you remember what you were wearing on the day Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson?

John Lennon and Yoko Ono
John Winston Lennon married Yoko Ono in Gibraltar by special licence in a three minute ceremony on Friday 21st March 1969.

Elvis Presley Marries
Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu married in Las Vegas at a private suite at the Aladdin Hotel in May 1967. It was the first real celebrity wedding and it was a very civilized affair. The bride wore a white beaded dress and Elvis wore a regular Tuxedo which some sources say didn't quite fit.

Princess Ann - Thirty-five year ago Princess Ann made this wedding vow "I obey." How many of us would make such a vow today? We're more relaxed, still conventional with our love of white wedding dresses and multiple-tiered wedding cakes but we've come a long way.

Liz Taylor and Richard Burton - Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are one of those rare couples who share a deep and eternal love for each other yet managed to spend both of their marriages in a constant verbal and physical battle.

Princess Margaret - Reading a newspaper from 1960 brings back evocative memories as long forgotten detail are recalled. Take this newspaper copy from the wedding of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones.
