This is a very nice portrait of the bride and groom with a great background. With a few tweaks I think it could be improved. See below.

Hi Philip, this is probably my least favorite, and it is because of the groom looking so awkward. They both look stiff and unnatural. If you pulled them apart, could you imagine either one of them standing like they are here?

Composition
& perspective
I like how you have them off center and under the diagonal lines of the ?roof? I'm glad you didn't have the roof going through their heads :) I would like to see more of the scene here, so if you cropped it in a lot, maybe back off and show more of their surroundings.

Lighting
The color again is on the cooler side. Try using a gold reflector or fill flash to warm it up, as well as fill in some shadows. It almost looks underexposed in the muted tones of the image. I would like to see it more vibrant as well.

Focus
Your focus looks good again. By the sharpness of the roof, I think they are right next to the building, is that correct? If so, pull them forward and away from the building to give yourself more depth of field. I don't like that the rooftop and moss look almost as sharp as them. It is a great element in the background, but my eye keeps going up to it.

How to improve your photo
1.
Work on your posing. Have the bride arch a bit and add some S curve to her back. She is too stiff - straight up and down. Work on your hand posing for her bouquet. I would have her hold the bouquet loosely and pointing down, her arching back and bit and him leaning into her.
2.
Again, you have a tough groom to work with. He does not seem comfortable in front of the camera. But guess what? That IS your problem if you are doing their wedding (I know you were doing friends shots) So in the future, really work on talking with them, getting them to smile, touch each other, laugh etc.
3.
He needs to do something with that left arm that is just danging at his side. Have him wrap is around her waist, hold her hand like they are dancing or touch her face. His expression looks forced. It is too bad, because she looks engaged with him, but he just kind of standing there. Add some movement to your posing and keep up great work and thank you!
