You might want to use a tripod more often.

I was getting a little dizzy as you kept spinning around the couple.
And as a viewer I felt it was quite intrusive.

I agree, the shakiness is a bit jarring. Lord knows most of the stuff that I have shot has come out with the same shakes, but something like this is best with less movement and smoother motion.

way too much movement, looks like you're zooming in and out, in addition to the spinning and bouncing... all quite jarring, and no particular artistic reason... some of your shots were good, but what's with the "fly-bys"?? Just seemed to not fit with the event.

First of all, I wouldn't call that a music video; I always think of a music video in a wedding as where you lay down a song and cut to it. OK, a picky point and not a big deal

All I'll say about the camera work is: I agree what's already been posted. Think the amount of movement distracts from the emotion happening between the couple; that was obviouslly a special moment for them and didn't need much to capture it

Why was everything in black a white? I may be old fashioned but I think keeping the dance in color and the "flashback" inserts in B&W adds some gravity to the whole concept

And if you are doing cutaways, maybe place them to cover up some of the irriating autofocus

The sound recording technique needs lots and lots and lots of work. Especially for a video where the music is supposed to be a key element, I'm afraid this just doesn't work at all.
