How long for UK residency after marriage

He's British, I'm not. I plan to travel to London on a fiancee visa so we can get married. How long does it take after the wedding for the visa extention/ work permit to arrive?

Once we get our wedding registered and the applications sent off, I'd like to have a sense of just how long before I can start looking for work/ stop mooching off the poor guy/ watch my savings dwindle in the face of a 1:140 exchange rate. This is, of course, in the UK.
- How invasive/ irritating is the process? Applying for the fiancee visa was an enterprise in itself.
- For anyone else from the dark side of the world: does travelling get easier afterwards? Can't say I'd miss the suspicious looks and disbelieving interrogations that come with the ghetto (non-EU/US etc) line at Immigration, while my young man breezes through.
