I'm shooting this couple's wedding this weekend (and I think I'm more nervous than the groom!) It'll be my 1st wedding, so as usual, I hope all goes well.

Nice set of shots. Best of luck with their wedding! :)
Now for the C/C:
You use a lot of off-camera lighting and I find it to be a lot of times too strong.
#1. I wish her hair wouldn't be hiding her face. He doesn't seem to have the best expression either. I would hit the delete button on this one.
#2. Everything is underexposed, even the couple. I'm not exactly fond of the fact that we almost can't see the background. Black isn't my idea of a nice background. Her leg seems awkwardly placed.
#3. Better for the posing, but again, I'd like to be able to see the background. The composition could be improved significantly though.
#4. White balance is off, again, too dark and boring composition. The couple looks lost in this picture.
#5. The best of the set. I wish his hair would separate more from the background. Again, it is underexposed.
#6. Better use of off-camera lighting. The couple is underexposed though.
You do have some potential, doing off-camera lighting isn't necessarily an easy task. But my advice is to continue to practice and also get a few shots with ambient light only (so that if you screw up the off-camera lighting, you have something to fall back on).
Also, a bit more PP can improve these significantly.

I appreciate your C&C on these. You have a great point (a lot of great points!) to fall back on ambient light only shots. I'm practicing some more tonight.
Thank you again!

I personally like the first and the last. In the first the chimney is distrating--you might want to crop it out. The last ---would be good if she was looking at the camera.
Good creative shots though. Keep it up.
