Proper photo editing can not just be a laptop in the corner of the living room, to do it right you should have a professional grade calibrated monitor in a light controlled environment. You also have to be able to "see" colour correctly, at 16 I started work in a pro printing lab where I learnt to see colour correctly. Read more here
A person shooting weddings does not have this skill as there are places in the far east that will edit them for a fee. But I prefer not to use a 3rd party so I can keep 100% control of my images.
When we look at something our eyes constantly adjust to the light and we build up a picture of how the scene looks, making the dark bit look brighter and the light parts darker, but the camera only deals in 1s and 0s - it also has no feeling, it cannot sense the emotion we felt, so that's where I can then start put back what the camera didn't see. I can do this because I was there, so I prefer not to send my images to a 3rd party.

For me wedding photography is not just the wedding day itself as there are many hours of work afterwards in the digital darkroom, and for every 1 hour of wedding photography there is another 2 hours of photo editing.

To arrive at your final images I take an unlimited amount on the day. I may take a few shots of a subject- but then later select the best to go forward to the next editing stage.
Below is an example of the kind of work that can go into some of my photos after the wedding - although not every shot will receive this amount of work, each shot will have some work applied to it.
