I'm no expert but here's my two cents worth...
Make the most of elevation, look down on them and have them look up at you (minimises chins and emphasises face). Use the bouquet to your advantage in this shot.
Try to be slightly higher than them and avoid shooting uphill towards them at all costs.
I tell women to pose with one foot pointing towards the camera and all their weight on their back foot. Rock their hip out and relax. The back shoulder will drop and the body elongates nicely.
Try to focus on faces and expression, but get the full length shots too of course.
Use trees, columns etc to your advantage, also compositions where they are small in the shot ie. Big wide scenery or building shot with B&G a relatively small feature.
These are just some things I thought of quickly, I'm sure others have lots more ideas.
