Can anyone help / sugest something I can try?

    Black & White lor.

    Tell them B&W brings out the emotions, not distracted by colour.

    it depends on how bad the overexposure is.

    if you shot in raw, it will be more saveable

    if you shot in jpg, maybe you can post up the shot here, if too private, just black out their face so we can get an idea just how bad the overexposure is and suggest means and ways to save the picture..

    if it is just 1 or so stop over i think it is not impossible to save. even with jpg, also depends on the scene, no? without a picture, what can we tell you?

    What night86mare said.

    If too jia lat, do a B&W, tone it if it looks better, add selective blur effects and tell them you did a 'dreamzscape' rendition of that special moment.

    Ya lor.. in weddings.. not every shot must be perfectly exposed or sharp.. use your imagination and PS it till it looks nice.. b/w, selective coloring, selective bluring, high key etc..
