Period Drama Weddings Game

"Here comes the bride..." or rather here is a fun game for you! 

The game this week is all about the weddings featured in period dramas! In the screencaps of weddings below you'll notice that I edited out the faces of the happy couple so that you can guess which bride and groom are in featured in each. Have fun! :)

To Play: Look at the screencaps of brides and grooms below and leave comments guessing which period drama and happy couple are featured in each photo. Guess as many times as you like. I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next Saturday. 


Scoring: Five points for each correctly guessed couple, five points for each correctly guessed period drama. A total of 150 points can be earned!

I think #5 is the version of Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow as Emma and Jeremy Northam as Mr. Knightley.

#9 is Robin Wright as Princess Buttercup and Chris Sarandon as Prince Humperdinck in The Princess Bride

I'm going to kick myself over the answers to several of these, I'm sure. Thanks for creating these! They're always excessively diverting.
