These are fine for a first wedding.

As far as critique, I'd say:
-that up-the-dress shot is a shot I would not have given back. I'd have been shooting in continuous mode and had a couple more shots to choose from
-framing could use help--it looks like you just weren't wide enough in that walking shot (feet cut off, heads at top of frame). Also notice in 1,4, extra bits sticking into the frame--clean up the images by making a slight crop.
-backgrounds are not-so-good in a couple of these (I see cars, graffiti). This could have been avoided by moving slightly.

A bit too photo-journalistic for my taste. Just my opinion. I like the feeling of number 8 but dress is a distraction. I like #1 the best and a reflector or flash fill would have helped.

Good start! I I agree that the last image - I probably wouldn't post. I always stay on the side of caution. The bride is your boss here!
