... I wound't think that this is standard practice. I might shoot such a thing RAW and do editing (that's the way that I like to work) but I consider my edited versions of the photos to be the "product" that I've been hired to produce. I would probably have a contract that stipulate this and not even mention anything about RAW, but if a client really wants that stuff then I would renegotiate and change extra for that...

If I were getting married in this age, I would not expect the photographer's RAW images but I would want digital JPG copies with at least UHD quality (or 2160 px height for portrait framing) since I am not interested in paper prints and view my photos on UHD screens (ie 8MP). I would agree to a modest increase in price for these JPG vs paper prints (but not very much more)

PS: my wedding photos, taken in 1961 are B&W and 8x10, are in a bound album somewhere in a closet. I scanned them in the late 1990's at 200 PPI and only look at them on a UHD TV / Monitor.

Times do change and we are definitely in the age of digital photography.
