You're kidding, right? This is an excellent photo, and the bride and groom would be thrilled with it. I can't see how to improve on it.

The reflected hands/fingers stand out to me. Maybe clean them in PP?

Had to look long and hard to find something to improve. Try adding a little color to the small bit of sky, its a little blow out.

Apart from the blown-out sky, this image is beautiful! :eek:

like the engagement photo I think this one could be cropped a bit as well. The shot is lovely but for a wedding photo the couple needs to be the focal point, the way this is now I am not sure if it is the stairs or the car or them.

Also I am not sure if the stairs are curved or if that is lens distortion, if it is lens distortion I would see if it can be corrected as it is a little distracting. The car and the stairs both form lines of perspective, by those lines being bent on the stairs it makes it look like a fisheye effect...

just my .02 on improving what is really already an excellent image

MWP, hope you don't mind. I did a quick crop, then colored the sky in PSE, total of about 2 minutes. You could take more time and do a much better job, but this was pretty easy. Not all are.

I like this. Cropped and removed lamp and bright sky.
