You can't impose borders on photos. Best let them run free.

Increase the canvas size twice; first time with a white canvas, second time with a black canvas, there are more complicated ways - but this way seemed so blindingly obvious (as long as Elements 6 allows you to increase the canvas size of course).

I dont want the border round the edges of the canvas. I want the border round the photos on the canvas.

Sorry, just assumed that since you're a wedding photographer that you could manage these things already. Or at least do a Google search. Just shows how wrong you can be.

Use the marquee tool (top left of the tools bar) click on one of the corners of the photo and drag it until you get it where you want it. Right click your mouse and it will bring up a pop up box, scroll down to 'stroke', you can then select width and colour (and a few more options).
