    All cameras are suitable, most lenses are suitable, but are your skill suitable if you need to ask this?

    Wedding photography is 20% equipment and 80% other talents, skills, knowledge... So if you need to ask about the 20% what about the other topics? Skills can make up for some shortfalls in gear, but equipment will never help when the skills are not there. Read up in Photo Biz, plenty of discussions about those 80% topics, see whether you are really up to it. Your camera is, no worries.

    maybe TS is hoping to rent out her gear as a backup , for a pro's newly acquired assistant...

    otherwise, if it is her first time, I hope she has got a mentor or assisting an experienced pro as an assistant photographer...

    If some uncle or auntie at the wedding say "ooi, hello", "come here take photo for us"

    You need to be humble and respond to the request, can't say "I am an artist, not a camera boy"
