What wedding poses are considered a "must have" for any event?

I'll throw out an easy one -

Bride and groom with their parents in the church.

Bride getting ready, rings, Bridal party all together then separate ones of the ladies then the gents. Bridal procession, the getaway car, reception toast, the list goes on and on.

Note: This is subject to change based on religion and culture.

Portraits: Bride, Bride & her parents (individually & together), same for Groom.
Bride & Groom, B&G with parents (his, hers, and both)
(optional: bride's father with shotgun)
Group: Bride & Bridesmaids, Groom & Groomsmen, B&G with maids & men. Entire party.
Ceremony: Bride walking down aisle. Ring exchange. Kiss.

Anything else the principals decide they need. If you do the reception as well, then cutting and serving each other cake is standard. Tossing the bouquet is sometimes done right after the ceremony, and sometimes at the reception, and that is usually standard.

Hi the way saw was what ever the couple wanted before the wedding ie getting ready. Then arriving, picture of grooms men and best man and groom, ring exchange signing the licence walking down the aisle. then its a case of building up the group shots. Then the special shots of the bride and groom. Reception and first dance cutting the cake. into days digital era you are looking at quiet a few pictures so take plenty of cards

Groom tossing the Brides Grater. If that is still done, I'm a little behind the times.

Just shot a wedding on Jan 1, 2011 and the couple refused to throw the flowers or grater. Twenty five years since the last time I shot a wedding. Did I ever feel more lost and out of place, it felt like my first time.
