Many couples are celebrating a big wedding anniversary in 2014. We thought that it would be interesting to see how many couples tied the knot all those years ago in England and Wales. We don't know how many will be celebrating their anniversary this year but we thought that the comparative number of weddings is interesting. If you are celebrating with a big wedding anniversary this year then we would like to pass on our very best wishes to you.
