Thanks everyone for the comments And since everyone mentioned the overexposure / high contrast thing: I went through a long process deciding what I'd like to be "my style". Tadaa, this it is. I allways knew I wanted my b&w to have a high contrast look, sometimes blowing out highlights and loosing shadow definition. Only in color images I was not so sure. Went through all presets there are, pretty presetheaven, vsco... When flipping through older series of mine (yes, actually it was not my first wedding, I've had a few) I had the feeling that many of the images I processed to have on vintage/aged/film-like look just were too processed and "not me". So in the last few weeks I came to the conclusion that I want my color wedding images to literally burst with color, possibly raise contrast and overexpose them a tad here and there.
I know this is a different approach but hope to have found my approach. Anyway, since everyone mentioned it, perhaps I take back some overexposure here and there. Or in the future. Not sure of that yet.
@Jon-Mark: Thank you and I think I might get your point on high contrast being tiring to the eye. Makes me rethink ... again
@Brent: Could you explain the first sentence? Sounds fun but I don't get it.
@Mark: 21, thank you and yes. I was tired yesterday evening but you're so right! I think I redo this shot and repost it!
@Mike: thank you for the long and detailed post. You're right with the details. I never get enough of them and there was so much stuff going on that I simply forgot. I took a few, though but not nearly enough. Good advise! White Balance in 25, yes I know. In fact I had a tough time with all those indoor shots. Sunset lighting from the entrance, shadow light from the windows, artificial room light. I gave up a few times, even shot a color checker only to notice that a correct white balance does not neccessarily look correct.
@Brian: I might try to take back the background brightness, but again I like it. And thanks for #19
