Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, Designers boasts nearly 400 photographs of the magnificent ceremonies, large and small, that have appeared in the pages of the magazine over the years. Here, 16 of the very best.

Kristen McMenamy married photographer Miles Aldridge in a nude-colored Chanel Haute Couture dress by Karl Lagerfeld, and a halo headpiece made of flesh-toned feathers by Philip Treacy, who also created headdresses for bridesmaids Saffron Aldridge and Naomi Campbell. The wedding was held at the Belvedere in Holland Park, London, in 1997. Lagerfeld stood in as father of the bride.
