A friend of mine is setting up a wedding venue. There will be a central stage where bride, groom and family will sit. All videos and photos will be taken here.

Will there be any benefit if he gets a lighting system setup for the photographer? This so that the photographer can come in and hook up using a remote and off he goes, rather than him setting up his own gear.

If so, what kind of setup would you suggest?

This sounds like you're dealing with someone who is possibly very confused.  A lighting system for photographers would likely be strobes - not stage lights.  The triggering system would be manufacturer specific - sometimes even model specific to the camera.  And the use of said triggers requires knowledge - even mastery by the photographer to use properly.

In sum - the photographer should be talking with the friend - the internet can't help.
