I like your idea with 3, pity her head is hidden. Also the heavy vignette in 1 & 3 is causing a lot of purple on her wedding dress.

Good composition, IMO. However, I would def lose the fake (yes, fake?) flare on # 3. Also, all of these shots are processed in completely different ways, hence making them less a cohesive set of images. That's cool too if you're just fooling around with PP to see what you like :)

I agree. No vignette here though. I used an elinchrom square44 dish and the purple tinge is the resulting fall off. I would have used a bigger octa if I had time to setup. More tweaking in PS should be done to remove the purple tinge.

I knew someone would catch that. The RAW file does have the flair but I lost some of the detail in post and decided to "enhance" the final copy. I think it works in this photo so Im going to keep it for now.

I'm wondering what the main guy was getting if you were second!

The very first shot you posted, she looks a bit drunk and he's trying to hold her up.

Love the Flare in #3

I was thinking the same thing, she looks like she is leaning to her left and not standing up. He looks like he is helping to support her.
Have her standing up more.
Put her hand on his arm and not just hanging by her side.
Have her eyes open more wider

Other then that I like the images

Love the depth of the first one... just curious what caused the sky darking and clouds to change color on the fringe if there was no PS vignette? Did you have a filter on the lens?
