Hey all,

the question has been asked many times. I don't claim to be a professional, but do have the enthusiasm to learn. I have been asked to do my cousin's wedding in February. I reluctantly agreed, warning him that the photos will be no better than happy snaps. He was fine with that. He has a professional videographer on the day and sees that the video is more important than photos.

I would like some guidance though. My cousin is getting married in a Greek Orthodox Church and is reasonably dark. After the ceremony the family will head off to some of the local parklands (probably Treasury Gardens in Melbourne). A little later the bridal party heads off to the Regency Theater in Melbourne. I have not been to the theater before, but I hear that it is somewhat dark as well.

I have the following equipment and would like some of you to tell me what they would most likely use on the day.

1 5DII
1 60D
1 550D
2 580 EX
1 430 EXII
1 Canon 135L f2
1 Canon 70-200 f4 non IS
1 Canon 24-105 f4 IS
1 Canon 17-40 f4
1 Sigma 35 f1.4
1 Tokina 12-24 I f4
1 Tamron 28-75 f2.8 ( not quite happy with the quality of images)
2 Flash Brackets (ebay specials)

I also have a Manfrotto tripod if useful.

Thanks in anticipation
