Maybe drape the bridal gown around her legs on the grass making a nice circular shape.

Detail on THE dress is good. This is the best shot so far. They look like a happy wedding group and are all smiling at the camera.
The blue bit of something near the bride could be cloned away to avoid the distraction. Also the red flower by the head of bridesmaid no. 1. Its maybe in her hair but does distract. Consider if she might object to removal of her hair dec.
As Frank pointed out the dress could be better arranged, photographers often have assistants or get someone, a bridesmaid, to help or do it themselves.
To get a good semi formal shot requires a bit of assertion on somebodies part.

I've done a couple of mods based on your second photo. It was a lovely photo of them both, but they looked too detached for a just married shot.
The mods offer two portraits, bride and groom.
I'm still struggling to understand the fake tan look issue of colours/monitors so I just reduced the red and yellow saturation a little.

This looks better Steve, the profile makes a difference in the browser.


The image itself is underexposed overall. Check the Levels adjustment in Photoshop, and you will see most of the detail is towards the left with some small amount, and lower value, towards the right. The detail towards the right is the dress, the rest is underexposed.

Shoot in RAW, and you can correct exposure easily, and also ensure the dress is exposed properly. Increasing the exposure also reduces the apparent density of the reds that Ian mentioned. Also get into the habit of checking your LCD display with the histogram on, so you can immediately identify an exposure issue and correct with exposure compensation.

If this is intended as a 10 X 8 print, it needs to be cropped, and the mod has this crop applied, as well as exposure corrected.


Hope this helps,


regards


Willie

Decent shot. Wedding images canbe difficult due to white dresses and black suites. Youhave retained white detail nicely, but you are a touch too far in that direction. Under exposed.

Wedding shots need work. A bit of judicious use of the dodge tool would lift this even more. Several shadow areas need attention
