The background is lovely, my rule of thumb though is to light the bride.

On a personal note, just MHO but I dislike snogging pictures, again, the rule of thumb being a near snog is much more attractive / romantic.

I think it's very nice.
But I would have moved the light more to the front (or added a second). It's throwing some pretty strong shadows in places I'd rather it didn't (faces). A little lower camera angle would have put their heads above the trees...

My biggest regret is the shadows on their face, so I do completely agree. Also, the lower angle is a great idea too! Thanks Steven

The two tips of @Phil V plus

You should have done that the Sun is not blown out
or did you not have enough flash to over power it?

It's a lot easier to spot "issues" after the fact. It's a little harder to know how to correct them. But it's the ability to see/fix them at the time that separates the greats from the rest of us... I'm not one of them...

I really like that I often take pics like that of the wife with her at one end of a long frame.
I think I picked it up as a known technique.
