Timeless Wedding Photos Show Us A Softer Side Of World Leaders

It's easy to forget that the powerful men and women who run the world are also human.

They're usually photographed meeting with other world leaders, inside press conferences or in the midst of an international disaster -- maybe smiling, but often stern and trying to keep it all together.

But these photos of politicians and royals on their wedding day show us a different, softer side of them -- one that we particularly love. Check them out below.
