You could try either of these?

The first is a basic tidy up: colour balance, reduce saturation of wall, straighten horizon, sharpen, recolour dresses

The second is based on the first, but applies a glamour look (Diffuse glow, then two increasingly blurred Overlay layers)

Cheers,

At the expense of sounding like an idiot , I wish to say that I feel it so important to keep the memories of a picture and the settings around them as actual as possible. So glad people kept the wall , it was there , it was part of the day!!

To do some work like removal of the spout and a little repair of some of the stones to me are good. To add some blur and a bright mood for glamor is so cool. I just find some restoration of places keeping photo's real is the way to go!!

I am so novice to all of this but I for some reason believe in keeping things actual. Silly I guess
sometimes one may not be able to do so!!

I thought this would look good in Greyscale. I kept the Green channell and discarded the others. I then adjusted curves to add contrast.

Thanks Craig.
This is such a wonderful and precious picture , it speaks volums for the human soul. It is just a simple and beautiful expression of love, no one could have set this up as well as you captured the moment of such a touching scene!!

Sometimes we get into restoration we tend to not look into the actual beauty of the moment and picture!!

How about something different?

I did a painting in corel painter9, beautiful picture, i also love the background, a harsh stone background with a tender beautiful moment, leads to a very memorable memory indeed i would have thought!
