It's interesting to see that the title of this question has been edited so that it now IS a duplicate of another title - there is merit in that, but the OP's original question has been subtly overlooked in the process. The other question asks "How do I best prepare for ...". This one asks"Will what I have here be enough?" While the two obviously overlap substantially they are not the same question and the other answers say more (as they should) what you should do rather than what the limitations of the proposal are.

@Armfoot Maybe not the ideal reference :-) - 2007. I was walking past the bottom of the cable car in Hong Kong, and there was a wedding group having fun, so I waved my camera at them and the bride & groom AND the photographer invited me top join in so ... . Minolta 5D 6 Mp. Walking past, stand out of way of real photographer, ... other excuses :-).

+1 even just for portrait session in advance. I like to go for a walk in a park or gardens and find out what they want, how comfortable they are with each other, how comfortable they are with me. Any likes and dislikes. Thoughts on flash, kissing and cuddling - in church and in after wedding photos. ... . | Digital is generally easier than film. You know what you are getting and while volume does not substitute for quality, volume can help quality.

... it's very wise to find out what the wedding celebrant thinks. If they have no great "stature" in the B&G's eyes it will still matter somewhat BUT if they are priest or minister of the church and B &/or G are church members the celebrants wishes may dominate. Knowing in advance (as much as possible) what will limit what you can do is very important.

comment How do I prepare best for my first wedding photography event?
+1 This is somewhat at variance with my general line of advice BUT also contains some useful comment. Getting photos that the bride & groom like is the aim. Photographers should always determine what the B&G want and also what they will tolerate :-). I dislike situations where photographers spend a lot of the time right up close to the B&G, very much in the awareness of the guests and blocking people's view and dominating the proceedings. Some degree of interference is unavoidable. How much is tolerable to the B&G MUST be known in advance. Same goes for use of flash. AND ...

On two occasions in the now somewhat distant past when I was "fly on the wall" unofficial photographer, something went wrong and my photos were the best available. Nice for you when your photo "save the day". Try hard not to be the photographer who se day is saved.

comment A 13“x19” printer / archival quality ink combination?
If serious people are offering > 100 years I'd be interested in links. I'm by no means suggesting that they don't exist - just that it's hard to guaranteed any chemical process with any sort of certainty at that sort of time span. | FWIW standard silver process black & white prints that 100 years old are often in good condition.

Thomas - your answer is correct with the camera and equipment provided. I have outlined a solution which allows him to do what he wants by adding an aftermarket charger specifically designed to do what he wants.
