Looks like you captured a lot of emotion with this set!
On #1 I agree that the bride's expression really enhances the photo and your timing was great. In terms of composition I did notice that the mother's hand is disappearing into the father's chest and that's kind of distracting. I think if you could have changed your position and angle of view slightly could have have brought her hand into view and you might have also gotten more of the bride into the frame. Also, it looks like the father is using his hand to support the mother's elbow and I think that if his whole hand was in the frame it really would have enhanced the tenderness of the moment.
#4 - this one feels like it is "leaning" to the right a bit - if that makes any sense. Rotating it slightly might help, but then again it might throw off the rest of the image.
#7 - again, great timing! Maybe crop tighter and shift dad over so he's not centered?
#8 - try shooting this one from the side since shooting straight on isn't the most flattering angle for women.
#9 - my favorite from the set!
#10 - At that angle the groom's shoulder and back are the closest things to the camera and they're right in line with one of the vertical guide lines if you were to apply the rule of thirds. Plus its one of lightest spots in the frame so it stands out. Having said that no matter what angle you shoot from you're going to have different challenges and trade offs. It might sound boring but shooting straight down the aisle from the back of the church is a good starting point and then maybe have your second working the side angle like you have here.
#11 - priceless!
Thank your for taking time and giving me detailed critique on each and every image, it definetly helps me in learning and seeing things differently. I was the only one shooting this as my second bailed out at last moment due to death in family, I was the one trying to cover everything. Which made things little bit stressful. I concentrated solely on moments to make things work but as many have pointed out there is definetly room to improve here.
