I think the post-processing, composition, light, background, are all kind of irrelevant if the content of the image doesn't contribute to the narrative you are showing in the photos overall. Yes, you can say that this moment shows the bride tired at the end of the wedding--not only would this be true, but it also works within a standard narrative. The problem is that these might not be sufficient if the image itself just seems to suggest sadness. In other words, if I took this shot, I'd have to ask: would the bride enjoy seeing this image. It's totally possible she would; I'm not sure.

What I think you were trying to do in the image is to show a rare moment when the bride is alone--a moment of possible inner reflection on the day. That's cool, and rare to grab, I find. But I think this would have worked better if, say, you could see the party going on behind her somehow--some hints that this image is like a little window of quiet in the swirl of action that is probably going on around her.

Too much clutter on the right and lighting is a bit flat.
