These are some of 2017's most amazing wedding photos

2017, it's fair to say, was a interestingly controversial time in most of our lives. We had plenty of political, social and creative discussion points to argue over in the course of 12 months, but I'm sure there were plenty of happy points in that time as well.

Personally, a lot of my friends got engaged or married last year, and even if the world around us appears sometimes uncertain or scary, we can take solace in our own personal circles, can't we? Here are some of 2017's best wedding photos. They might bring a tear or two to your eye, and if they do, I'm going to be too busy bawling to notice.

Of course, we can expect to see quite a few more weddings, and wedding photos, over the coming weeks and months, and I'll be sure to look out for many more interesting photos I see throughout the year. If you're getting married this year, however, don't worry about making them too artsy; what's important is that you're taking them with someone you love.
