Try lighting effects, and maybe go online to search for frames to put into your pictures.

No, I mean putting a light effect onto your picture. To go to Lighting Effects, select Filter > Render > Lighting Effects.

You could use a dodge tool and burn tool to make there be more contrast in the picture.

With this, it would make some people stand out more than others. AKA the bride and groom.

A very nice effect that a lot of couples like for weddings is to use gaussian blur, it creates a nice foggy effect when set to a different mode

Instructions:

1. Open the picture you would like to apply this effect to.[File->Open]
2. With the layer of the picture selected, make a new layer[Command j or ctrl+j In windows]
3. Now with the new layer selected go to Filter-->blur--> Gaussian blur, set it to about 13.0
4. Now still having the second layer selected go to the layers palate and you will see a window that says "modes" look for "Normal". When you find normal click on the arrow and change the mode to lighten and you will get a good effect for weddings. ***Note that you can change it to a different mode that not just lighten :)

Hope you try this, a lot of people are pleased with these when I do it.

Hi equinox55,

If you're looking for quick and easy stuff, you can always use the photo filters in photoshop. They're built in manipulations that you can use to alter the photo's easily. Just go to image>adjustments>photo filter. Alternatively, you can (as mentioned) use lighting effects and some gaussian blur to get the desired effects. Sharpening also comes in handy with wedding photos (especially the portrait photos). Personally I prefer Unsharp Mask when sharpening, but Smart Sharpening is also quite effective.
