How to turn someone down?

I have a major issue with people asking me to do wedding or photos of little tommy playing in the stand box.

I'm not a Pro nor never want to be a Pro.

I always get bloody coworkers asking me well one who is like will you take photos at my voles. I say mate I have never done voles photography and I don't have the equipment or knowledge. He expects me to do it for free or 100.00. He is like well mate I'm not paying 1600.00 for a wedding photographer it's a ripe off and skam. I'm like umm ya that's why it should cost if not more.

The bottom line people call me a wankar when I say I don't have the skill set. They think well this mate has all this photography equipment so he must be good or know what he's doing? How do I get around this and not be called a wankar for saying NO. It's quite frustrating.
