1) I would brighten the bride's eye a bit. It's dark grey and very unpleasant to me.
2) A little too much head room. I would clone out those weird lines (shadow from the flower on her head) on the wooden panel. It's a little distracting. It's a little too grainy for me but that's just personal taste. The harsh shadow from her head makes it look weird.

Just my thoughts. I still like the pictures though =)

Look a little over cooked to me, and I would fix the underarm "shine" on 1.

Not very good, I'm afraid. I recommend not using excessive post processing until you learn the basics like off camera flash, exposure control, and focus.

#1 look out of focus and as stated her eyes have no pupil - kinda gray. The excessive vignette looks really bad at the groom's waist area, and not a fan of the tilt here either. Also looks over processed. The composition on this could be greatly improved by changing the angle and eliminating the brown pole and getting the flash off the camera.

#2 looks like on camera flash - notice the hard shadow on the wall behind the bride? The composition is not very good either - the brown pole thing to her right makes you think "What the heck is that and what are those brown lines (legs of a giant bug? Plant branches??) about head height.

I would hope this was done for a friend at no cost. It's a lot to learn and weddings are exceptionally hard. Maybe spend time learning basic portraiture and go from there.

Actually they look like they have been over processed to correct basic exposure flaws. I don't think either of these should make it to the final presentation.

Weddings should present soft beauty, especially for the bride. And colors should be as near an identical match to reality as is possible.
