Let me know what do you think guys, it was my first wedding where I took some pictures. In any means I was appointed photographer on this event, just a humble guest.

Nice set of pictures for your first wedding. I’m sure they’ll enjoy them.

I’m doing my first for a friend in a month or so, looking forward to it.

focus not to sharp / some blown highlights
as long as you learn from these your next wedding shots should be better
as a guest photos ok
as the official tog lot more practice required

Thanks for commenting guys! I've got problems with focusing as I'm using manual focus lenses and still need quite a bit of practice to get better at it! Same thing with exposure, built in lightmeter is a bit flimsy to say the least but I'm learning and improving!

Like them all apart from first one and the last one. Keep half an eye on the background. In the first, the lamp is badly framed behind and in the last example the fence/railing distracts from the bride too much and sends your eyes off on a different journey.

I don't think they're that bad at all, I too have seen far worse from official/pro togs. I'd be chuffed if a guest at our wedding had taken photos of this standard.

OP overall a nice set. Some of the processing isn't to my taste, and some of the WB is off but that's just preference (y)

Some really nice moment caught there Marcin. Very nicely processed too.

Don't get too caught up on nailing focus on every shot. Obviously aim to hit focus, but don't reject less than perfect shots.

It's always really amusing how people who've never shot a wedding before (or in the last 20 years) trot out that weary camera club claptrap about 'focus, highlights and composition'. Emotion will always trump any and all of those things every single time.
