The Wider Image: Haiti's brides beat hurricanes, power cuts and protests to wed in style
Mirla-Samuelle Pierre, 32, a reggae singer, puts on a tiara, as she gets ready before her wedding to Duckyns St-Eloi, better known as 'Zikiki', her drummer and composer bandmate, at the Church of the Adventist University of Haiti, in Diquini, Carrefour, Haiti, December 28, 2017. If a couple has relatives abroad willing to be the 'godparents' or witnesses, these will typically make a financial contribution to the wedding, including buying and shipping the bride's dress, usually a bouffant white gown. Pierre said her cousin who lives in New York and was her wedding godmother purchased her dress, shoes, gloves and tall sparkling crown, "I wanted to be different to everyone else so I got the tallest one there was," she said.

Woodna Vernet, the godmother, wears a white dress as she and wedding guests at Mireille Mathurin and Herve Vernet's wedding, leave the church, in Mariani, Haiti, April 15, 2017. Mathurin and Vernet got married in a double wedding ceremony. The bridesmaids and groomsmen often dress so similarly to the bride and groom that it can be difficult to define, from outside, who is actually getting wed.

For Chinese couples, wedding photos are not simply about having a photographer show up on the big day. They can be elaborate affairs involving costumes, make-up artists, camera assistants and trips overseas, sometimes even underwater, and take up as much as a quarter of the wedding budget.

Women dance during the wedding ceremony of Bulgarian Muslims Fikrie Bindzheva and Azim Liumankov in the village of Ribnovo, in the Rhodope Mountains, February 14, 2015. The remote mountain village of Ribnovo in southwest Bulgaria has kept its traditional winter marriage ceremony alive despite decades of Communist persecution, followed by poverty that forced many men to seek work abroad. The wedding ritual was resurrected with vigour among the Pomaks - Slavs who converted to Islam under Ottoman rule. The highlight of the ceremony is the painting of the bride's face, where in a private rite open only to female in-laws, her face is covered in thick, chalky white paint and decorated with colourful sequins.
