    Oh my gosh those are very sweet! I loved them. What a small charming wedding. The mom (of the bride I'm guessing) look ss o interesting to photograph all on her own, LOL
    I love those cuff links! And can I say I have never seen a happier looking groom! I feel like he's one of those people everyone would like his face is so kind and happy. You did an excellent job!

    There are some really good shoots in there. It looks like you should up your exposure some, as many photos looked slightly dark for my taste. With alittle touch up on the more striking photos, I believe you'll have some very nice images.

    Btw, are you English? It just screams UK to me... doesn't look like a bunch of Yanks (sp) to me.

    Nice work. I like how all the shots are nice and tight...not a lot of wasted space.

    Wow, thanks guys, really appreciated.

    It was a small wedding with only 18 people during the day and only a few more at night, so a lot of repeated faces

    They look darker on Flickr than on my screen

    Yes I'm UK based but the bride is Spanish and the Groom Dutch, hr family don't speak English or Dutch, his only Dutch, with the friends doing a combo of SP/GB and Dutch/GB and me just pointing and talking loudly.

    I did a lot of post production on crops etc, some of which made up for my lack of skill in the view finder.

    They saw the pics last night and seemed very happy, well I got a big kiss and a tight hug from her anyway and a firm hand shake from him - best that way around I think as well!

    I did a book for them today using Blurb, got to wait 10 days for shipping.

    Too many underexposed. I have the same problem too though at times :)

    Nice feeling to the images though and nice captures.

    Very nice work. Exposure was generally good, but I would adjust the levels in Photoshop for some. That should brighten them right up.

    Nice job especially for a first timer. I agree with some others that some are underexposed, but not terribly and can be fixed. Many have nice composition and you seemed to capture the emotion and sentiments of the day.
