As I mentioned when I posted the first shot from the wedding I photographed recently, I was co-shooting with Tom Wicky. The biggest and most obvious benefit of have two photogs at a wedding is that the pressure is reduced, i.e. your not solely responsible for getting each and every shot. A related benefit is that while one of you shoots the main shot, the other can pursue other angles. In this instance, as Tom was photographing the bride getting into the car after the ceremony - from the obvious, and easiest angle - I was shooting between the gap left between the hinged side of the door and the car body. With the benefit of hindsight I wish I'd moved an inch or two to the left, but I am pleased with how this one turned out.

If you're interested, the original was converted to black and white (as discussed in this tutorial), then toned with a curve (as discussed here).
