Does the bride go down the isle on the left arm of the father or the right arm? Are there some pictures to show me this?

The bride always stands on the left and the bride's side of the church where family and parents sit is always the left side.  This goes way back to Medieval times when the bride stood on the groom's left so that he could draw his sword, which he wore on his right side, if he needed to protect her from enemies.
