MY COMMENTS:
I really need help with this as it is completely different than anything else I have tried. I would like to give it to my son and daughter in law as a gift (they were married two weeks ago. The scan came out very dark, and there are many colours and details in the original that I can't seem to get into the image.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Should I be adding some light to the left of the groom to bring him more into focus?

nice balance, composition. Would like to see it with detail

it is a suitable treatment.
also would have exciting potential if you wanted to be expressionist by going over everything and making a higher contrast and enhancing the different directions the the forms are pulling.

I won't comment on colors since you stated problems with the scan. I do think that some lighter values in the background would make the composition more cohesive.

I like how you placed the subject and the expressive nature of your brushstrokes.
