Sorry, I am going to say what everyone else is probably thinking (and this even happens in films). Because of the way you have cropped the photo, it looks as though Kayleigh is wearing a veil and nothing else! I'm sure she has a dress on (and everything else a bride wears) but by moving back just slightly and including the top of her dress it will make her look fully clothed again. Do you agree?

Great pose by the way and a beautiful young lady well captured.

Much prefer the colour version. The B/W lacks that sparkle.

A charming photograph. The clean light is engaging and the sharp subject is enjoyable to look at. Though the observation about the 'naked' bride is a flaw to an otherwise great shot.

Warm wishes, Iain.

I see what you mean about the dress but I dont think it is a bad thing. I think it is a very good picture but I personally prefer the colour version.

Well done

Hi Andrew no cropping of the image at all, just straight out of the camera and an unsharp mask applied.
For me its just a great natural shot and what makes it for me is she is looking right down the lens.

Thanks everyone

A nice candid shot, - no doubt at all this is a happy bride, - might consider a crop.

Loaded a mod with crop, vignette to isolate, curves to brighten, softened skin, lightened eyes.
