Well framed, nice idea instead of the typical 'All eyes on me'. Were you the main photographer or just on the side or backup?

Dennis, you got great lighting on the subjects.

Ambient setting for a special day.

Quite nice Denis. Especially given that you would normally get a lot of green reflected from the surrounding greenery.

Personally, I would have composed differently.

I agree with the others and JC's comment. Nice control of the WB and not having the skin/white dress come out with a greenish tint.

Thanks guys for the kind comments.
Everything just fell into place on that day. The weather was a little dreary but it made for nice soft delicate lighting. I'd typically use a scrim with our strong outdoor lighting here but the light was so good the session was wrapped up in under an hour.

The K20D metering was perfect straight out of the camera and the DA* 200 gives such a nice punchy colour rendition that I really didn't have to adjust anything during post processing.
