Ten of the best weddings in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best weddings in literature.

One wedding on the list:
Paul Marshall and Lola Quincey

In Ian McEwan's Atonement, Briony attends the wedding of her cousin, Lola, and the repellent "chocolate magnate" Paul Marshall. Briony knows that it was Marshall who raped Lola a few years earlier, a crime for which another man was convicted. But now there is nothing she can say.
Read about another wedding on Mullan's list.

Atonement also appeared on Mullan's list of ten of the best identical twins in fiction.
