There is nothing to match a wedding when it comes to a tear-jerking finalé, as filmmakers know all too well.

The emotional roller-coaster in the lead-up to a bride’s big day can be more dramatic than anything Hollywood could dream up.

But up there on the big screen, actors and actresses make us laugh, cry and gasp as they remind us that pretty much anything can happen when it comes to true love.

The bride and groom could fall out before the big day, he might run off with one of her bridesmaids, or she fall for his best man.

Perhaps he will be mistakenly arrested before they get to the altar, or one of them will realise they are about to get hitched to completely the wrong person.

Fortunately, for the majority of bride and grooms, everything goes smoothly and they end up saying ‘I do’ without any second thoughts or disasters.

So, settle down with a glass of wine, watch our pick of the best movies ever made about weddings and remember one thing – there is always a happy ending . . .
