Wedding traditions vary greatly around the world. In the Czech Republic a tree is planted in the couple’s honour, and in India weddings often last for multiple days, with various rituals taking place in the family’s home.

But no matter where the celebration occurs, you can usually spot a happy bride and groom beaming at the camera. In celebration of that, the photo-sharing app EyeEm gathered some of their users’ best shots of modern weddings all over the world. Keep scrolling to see them.
